Amsterdam joins Top 10 of world’s most important commercial centers

Amsterdam this year has joined the Top 10 of the world’s most important commercial centers. That’s according to the latest edition of the Worldwide Centers of Commerce Index, an annual report commissioned by MasterCard.

The report is designed to evaluate and rank how major cities compare in performing critical functions that connect markets and commerce around the world

Amsterdam is listed in tenth place, one spot higher than in last year’s index. It has become the fourth European city listed, following Frankfurt, Paris and London.

Amsterdam emerges as an important European city. A historically innovative financial center, where the concept of stock ownership was invented, Amsterdam rises to become the #4 city in Europe in the global top 10.

With one of the world’s most stable economies, high standard of living and strong legal and political framework, Amsterdam’s rise illustrates the continued importance of Europe as a dominant global player.
