Phoenix, Arizona, has been named the world ‘fastest growing city’ by Next Big Futures, with a population of more than 17 million and a population density of around 9,000 people per square kilometer.
Next Big Future, a market research firm, said Phoenix was the fastest-growing major metropolitan area in the world by 2030.
The Phoenix metro area is set to reach around 11.3 million by 2030, more than double the population of New York City, which is set for a similar growth rate of 6.3 percent.
“Phoenix has seen a lot of changes over the past few decades.
But we are not going to slow down.
Phoenix is still the fastest growing metropolitan area of the United States and we are going to keep it that way,” Next Big Business President, Michael McGlone, said.
Phoenix is already the fastest growth city in the country.
It is forecast to overtake London as the fastest city in Europe in 2030.
This week, Next Big Cities said that Phoenix’s population had grown from 6.5 million in 2011 to 10.5 percent in 2020, an increase of 9 percent.
The company said that the population growth rate in Phoenix is a result of its rapid economic and cultural transformation, including the construction of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the addition of the largest single-family housing projects in the state, and the growth of the local healthcare sector.
In its new report, Next Business said that in 2020 there were 4,621,000 residents in Phoenix, with 1.9 percent of that population living in poverty.
This is the third consecutive year that Phoenix was listed as the top 10 fastest growing city in America.
It was also the highest-growing city in Arizona by a wide margin, as well as the second-fastest-growing metro area.
Phoenix has been attracting a lot more international investment and business in the past decade.
In fact, in 2020 the Phoenix Metropolitan Airport generated more than $10 billion in foreign direct investment and brought in $1.2 billion in domestic direct investment.
In 2021, the airport is expected to generate $4.2 million in domestic and $1 billion in international direct investment for the airport alone.
The city has also been home to the largest U.S. airport in the US, the Phoenix International Airport.
