Stockholm charged into eighth place in a new list of the world's most competitive cities in attracting capital, businesses, talent, and visitors, according to a ranking released on Tuesday.

The list, published by the Economist Intelligence Unit and commissioned by Citigroup, ranked 120 of the world's cities in terms of their global competitiveness now and into 2025. Stockholm, which was 13th place in last year's ranking, soared into the top ten this year and was rated as the third most competitive in Europe after London (second) and Paris (seventh).

"We're very happy to place so highly in Europe," Ola Zetterberg, head of Stockholm Business Region, told The Local. "Despite being almost at the North Pole and having a smaller metropolitan area of only three million people, we're performing quite well."
