It was heartening to see Namma Bengaluru recently placed at the top of a global ranking of cities. The JLL City Momentum Index has ranked Bengaluru as the most dynamic city in the world, ahead of Silicon Valley and Shanghai. Hyderabad also features in the top 10 list at the fifth position. The results of the rankings are in line with the view held by many of the leaders of the e-commerce giants that are based here, who vouch for the fact that Bengaluru is the destination of choice for new generation companies. However, they also agree that this is due to a combination of factors, primarily the moderate weather and the abundance of skilled labour due to the established IT ecosystem.
