Benchmarking Report for Sydney

The Committee for Sydney has recently published a new first-among-equalsbenchmarking study carried out by The Business of Cities, which compares Sydney’s performance with 32 other peer cities. The report, entitled ‘First Among Equals?’ highlights Sydney’s unique assets in the Southern Hemisphere and the ongoing strength of its destination brand. It observes Sydney’s recent improvements in terms of innovation, research and overseas investment, but identifies constraints and future challenges around Sydney’s sustainability, spatial development and public transport network, especially at the metropolitan level, something which the Greater Sydney Commission intends to help address.
