The Future of Competitiveness: Corporations, Cities, Countries

12:30 - 14:00

Hall A, 3rd Floor

Today the transnational corporations have already exceeded the potential of countries, and megacities have become civilizational centers of the world. The economically active population, capital and technology are concentrated in urban centers, despite existing rules in administrative division. The countries at large provide critical infrastructure services such as legal, physical and security but its development directly depends on the successful business.

How to ensure mutual cooperation of corporations, cities and countries? What kind of responsibility can business borrow of the countries? What should countries do to achieve sustainable cities? How can cities have world’s leading positions?
