Chengdu Listed on GaWC Global City Rankings

Authors: Li Gen


GaWC (Globalization and World Cities Research Network), a think tank based at Loughborough University in England that studies the relationships between world cities in the context of globalization, released a report titled The World According to GaWC 2016 earlier this year. Chengdu ranked seventh among all Chinese cities surveyed.
Every four years, the GaWC examines 307 cities worldwide, then ranks them based on their international reputation, demographics, transportation systems, appeal to foreign investment, and cultural influence, etc. Categorized into "Alpha" (including four sub-categories), "Beta" (including three sub-categories) and "Gamma" (including three sub-categories), the GaWC cities include additional ones at "High sufficiency" and "Sufficiency" levels.
Jumping from "High Sufficiency" in 2012 to "Beta-" in 2016, Chengdu ranked seventh among all Chinese cities, following Hong Kong (Alpha+)、Beijing (Alpha+)、Shanghai (Alpha+)、Taipei (Alpha-)、Guangzhou (Alpha-) and Shenzhen (Beta).
Just after having topped China's new first-tier cities, Chengdu was listed on the GaWC Global City Rankings, showing convincingly that over the recent years the city has been highly recognized at home and abroad, thanks to its outstanding achievements in politics, economics and society, culture, sci-tech, and globalization.
