全球城市可以定义为具有竞争优势的城市中心,并作为中心服务于全球经济体系。“城市”一词起源于20世纪80年代。这些研究考察了世界重要城市和城市中心的共同特征。在最近的全球化之后,越来越多的关注开始变得更加突出(Datta, 2012)。全球化的联系导致了全球化城市的形成。加入到这个模式中,城市开始获得对地方政治场所的更新特权,并发现在国家机构期间进行了重新配置(Keil, 2011)。现代全球组织作用的扩大和非工业化的后果导致某些领域获得突出地位。全球城市的例子可以是伦敦(哈克和西蒙兹,2013年)。伦敦金融城已经确立了自己作为一个连接银行业和金融业的地方的地位。这些全球城市也例证了现代国际政治经济学中以国家为中心的观点。全球城市被发现有相同的特点,因为他们的方面的联系和共同的经验。这些全球城市陷入了相互竞争之中,被迫将重点放在资源的增加和资本的引进上。


Global city can be defined as the urban centre that is found to have competitive advantages and it is used as a hub to serve the globalized economic system. The term city has its origin that was carried out from 1980s. These examined the common characteristics of the world’s important cities and urban centres. The increased attention started to gain more prominence subsequent to the globalization in the recent times (Datta, 2012). The linking of the globalization leads to the formation of the global cities. Added to this schema, the cities started to gain newer privileges for the sites of local politics and are found to reconfigure during the state institutions (Keil, 2011). The expansion of the role of the modern global organization and the consequences of deindustrialization led to certain areas gaining prominence. The example of the global city could be London (Hack and Simmonds, 2013). The city has been able to post its position as a place that would link the banking and the financial sectors. These global cities exemplify the state-centric perspectives of the modern international political economy as well. The global cities are found to have the same features owing to their aspect of connectedness and shared experiences. These global cities are locked in competition with one another and are forced to focus on the increase of resources and to bring in capital.

In this schema, when the companies choose a particular destination based on the scope of the business and the local economy of the place, the company needs to have a stable demographic profile and enable in the formation of the niche consumer base. The attitudes of the company are aligned with the people (Fox, 2013). These factors of alignment reflect from the community attitudes or outlook. These cultural factors add to the culture of the company in its other location.
