Shanghai hits top three for competition

SHANGHAI remains one of the three most competitive cities in China and its quality of life rating has leapt to second place, according to the Chinese Academy of Social Science today.

Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Shanghai are the top three in overall city competitiveness in the 2009 City Competitive Power Report published by the academy. The top three ratings have not changed since 2006.

The annual report covered 294 Chinese cities, including Hong Kong, Macau and Taipei, for economic size, quality of life and economic efficiency.

While most of the major indexes remained the same as last year, Shanghai squeezed into second place for quality of life – last year it had failed to make the top 10 in this category.

Of 51 major cities, Shanghai ranks in the top three for competitive power of personnel, capital, science technology, infrastructure and government management.

Neighboring cities, Suzhou and Wenzhou, are the most competitive for the environment and culture.
