Bei­jing makes top-10 global cities list

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Bei­jing is among the world’s top 10 most global cities for the first time, rank­ing eighth in the A.T. Kear­ney Global Cities In­dex.

The in­dex, in­tro­duced in 2008 by the global con­sult­ing firm, in­cludes 84 cities.

Bei­jing scored an over­all 3.5 in five cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing busi­ness ac­tiv­ity, hu­man cap­i­tal, in­for­ma­tion ex­change, cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence and po­lit­i­cal en­gage­ment.

New York, Lon­don and Paris have held first through third since 2012.

John­son Chng, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of A.T. Kear­ney Greater China, said, “Clearly Bei­jing went up in the rank­ing due to its ris­ing im­por­tance as a busi­ness cen­ter in ad­di­tion to be­ing the po­lit­i­cal cen­ter of China.”
