The Knowledge City Index (KCI)发布 今天 identifies 悉尼, 墨尔本, 堪培拉/Queanbeyan, Brisbane and Perth as top performers.
Lead author and Dean of the University’s Faculty of 企业，政府和法律 Professor Lawrence Pratchett said the top cities had a good combination of size and proportion of knowledge-intensive industry.
“It has particular strength in the number of tertiary-educated residents and it attracts talented workers from Australia and the world to fuel its knowledge economy.”
“Most of the tail-end cities are traditional port, industrial and mining cities, and we’ve identified significant weaknesses and limitations in their capacity to seize these kind of opportunities,” he said.
“It’s worth remembering that almost half of Australia’s population live in the top five performing cities, and we can see that they will be central to advancing the knowledge economy Australia-wide.”
