Central to progress; VIEWPOINT.

On the face of it, news of rapid job centralisation - in which parts of a city suffer job losses while one small part grows - is a dangerous premise.

Out-of-town development should be a vital component of a prosperous city.

However, news that the number of people working in Birmingham city centre is growing is welcome. Modern cities have to be globally competitive, and have to pick their battles like never before.

Experts say if this city is to grow, specialisms like financial services and digital are the key.

If that means we're all heading into the city, as long as the infrastructure allows, so be it.
