Urban competitiveness has become one of the central issues in public policy today. This has long been the case for cities (taken to refer both to cities and urban regions) in the industrialized countries, especially during the past three decades.

The study of urban competitiveness is central to the achievement of the development goals each population sets for itself.

This report concludes with a set of policy suggestions to guide local leaders who choose to take up the challenge of enhancement of the competitiveness of their city.
