Plenty has been written on the competitiveness of megacities, capital cities and regional hubs. Cities in developing countries have not yet received the same attention – this book fills that gap. An international team of expert academics have come together to present a comprehensive study of the competitiveness of cities in the developing world. Spanning Asia, Africa and Latin America, this book homes in on specific city cases and examines how they relate to the rest of the global economy. The focus is on acknowledging their unique contexts, while drawing out commonalities, and ultimately identifying ways for them to enhance their competitiveness, well-being and sustainability.

This volume will be valuable reading to advanced students, researchers and policymakers in urban and regional studies, economic geography and economic development.
