CENTRAL, Singapore - July 16, 2021 - PRLog -- Singapore has clinched the top spot in KPMG's global ranking of leading technology innovation hubs outside of Silicon Valley/San Francisco this year. This puts the nation ahead of other cities like New York, Tel Aviv, Beijing, and London for the second year running.

The 2021 KPMG Technology Industry Survey surveyed more than 800 global leaders from various sub-sectors in the technology industry on the cities they see as leading technology innovation hubs over the next four years. Among the top factors seen as important in the ranking were an urban locale that attracts young professionals, a pipeline of skilled talent, and modern infrastructure (including high-speed bandwidth).

When asked which countries and jurisdictions show the most promise for developing disruptive technologies, global tech leaders identified the United States, China and India as the top three, the same as in last year's survey. There are a few movers to note in the top 10 list. Seoul, ranked eighth last year, dropped out of the top 10 to tie for 14th this year. Austin and Seattle, ranked 11th and 24th respectively last year, tied for 10th this year.

Six of the top ten cities in the ranking are from the Asia Pacific region.
