The Five Richest Cities in the World That You Are Likely to Visit in Your Career
In the course of your career, you are likely to visit a number of cities when you travel for business, and this week, Bravofly reveals the five you are bound to travel to at some point.
Money Attracts Money, Which Will Attract Your Company
We are a truly international world. In the modern era, business doesn’t start and stop at the borders of your company’s home nation. More often than ever, businesses of every type are expanding their profit margins by going global, which means that you are likely to visit thriving metropolises across the planet, throughout the length of your career.
One principle does remain true though, even in modern finance. Money attracts money. Therefore, it stands to reason that the larger a city’s GDP, the more opportunities it will yield for your company to maximise their profit potential. The more likely you will be, then, to visit.
Bravofly Has Found That These Are the Five Richest Cities in the World…
So which are the five richest cities on earth; the ones you are most likely to visit? And what should you do when you get there? Based on GDP as calculated in 2013, Bravofly has found that these are the five richest cities in the world:
