We are in a new era of city competition. The rigid global urban hierarchy is breaking down as the combined forces of globalization, urbanization and technological change have reshaped the new world order of cities. A whole new science of cities has emerged as cities compete on a range of attributes from liveability and smartness, to resilience and transparency.

In order to make sense of the growing complexity of city competitiveness, real estate advisor JLL has developed a new framework for understanding the personalities of different cities, and the opportunities and obstacles ahead as they move into the next decade.

The Chamber has invited Jeremy Kelly, Director, Global Research, JLL to offer his insights on global urban landscape in the context of Hong Kong's future competitiveness. His talk will cover the following:
• Introduce JLL's new typology of cities, and identifying 10 city groups, their common paths and challenges;
• Assess Hong Kong's position within this typology as one of the 'Big Seven' global elite;
• Review the region's changing competitive landscape as Mainland China's cities move up the value chain; and
• Conclude with the key imperatives for future city success.
