GaWC - World Cities List 2010

Home > Articles > The World's Most Important Cities

Think you live in an important city? Have arguments with your friends about which city is the best? Probably not! Well, I do. After all it is important to know what cities are great to visit and how your hometown baby fairs against other major cities.

Although there is a general consensus on which are the leading world cities, there is no agreed upon roster covering world cities below the highest level. So an Inventory of World Cities was made up by a team called GaWC Globalization and World Cities - Study Group & Network - At Loughborough University in the UK.  The inventory of world cities based upon their level of advanced producer services. Global service centres are identified and graded for accountancy, advertising, banking/finance and law. Aggregating these results produces a roster of hundreds of world cities at 5 levels: There are 47 Alpha Cities. The only two ranking with A++ are New York and London.

Here are the links to the only "full service" world cities found globally.


London, New York


Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chicago, Dubai


Milan, Moscow, Toronto, Beijing, Mumbai, Madrid, Kuala Lumpur, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Seoul, Frankfurt, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Jakarta, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Amsterdam
