Abstract

Both the developed and developing worlds are becoming increasingly urbanised. Population and economic growth is located largely in cities. In the developed world, up to 90% of population and GNP is now based in urban areas. Competition among cities for this growth is increasing. Cities are the new engines of the economy.
