City of Wolverhampton has been ranked as joint number one in fDi Intelligence's ‘Small European Cities of the Future’ category.

The flagship European Cities and Regions of the Future 2023 strategy rankings have been released by fDi Magazine – home of Global fDi news and published by the Financial Times Ltd.

They benchmark European cities and regions according to their economic, financial, and business strengths – and the findings have identified Wolverhampton as an inward investment hotspot.

Wolverhampton’s entry impressed judges as a “city on the rise”, highlighting the launch of its Inward Investment Prospectus and establishing the city as home to the National Centre for Sustainable Construction.

Councillor Ian Brookfield, City of Wolverhampton Council Leader, said: “This honour demonstrates what a strong proposition Wolverhampton is for inward investment from the private sector.

“It is built on the Council’s ‘can do’ partnership approach and an attractive city investment prospectus that sets out the case for investment in the city, and opportunities that can deliver transformational change.

“Wolverhampton is a city on the rise, with a clear strategy supported by energy and ambition.”
