The think tank issued its 16th edition of global city competitiveness rankings at a press conference on Dec 20 in Hong Kong. It started to issue the rankings annually from 2002.

According to the CICC, it has carried out surveys and collected and analyzed data from 358 Chinese cities in the past year to make the new rankings.

Compared to the 2016 rankings, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Shenzhen remained in the top three positions, but Shenzhen has gained in abilities that bring the city closer to Hong Kong, according to the CICC.

Shenzhen has the most potential among Chinese cities, seeing gross domestic product growth at 8.8 percent in the first three quarters.

Globally, New York ranks at the top because of its robust economic strength, unique geographical location, diverse urban culture and leading advantages in innovation. Hong Kong is ranked ninth.
