Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore – three important and famous cities in Asia – share similar historical and geographical roots. Historically, their modern development began in the early nineteenth century, when British military superiority forced upon them a chapter of social and economic change. Geographically, they share a vital geographical advantage in their coastal location. On the threshold of a new century and a new era of globalization and knowledge-based economies, the role cities can play in global development has been notably enhanced. This paper thus focuses mainly on three key questions. First, how do cities compete in the age of globalization? Second, how do these three cities fare in terms of competitiveness, as measured by results of surveys and institutional studies? Third, what measures and strategies have the three cities adopted in preparing themselves for more acute competition in the future?
