Cities have always been built up for a competitive advantage. This being the strategic point or a bigger task to look at, the planners need to understand the needs of the city and its community perspective. It is also vital to exploit the infrastructure. The bigger picture is as to why a particular city is competitive or non-competitive and what commonality can be included like transportation and so on. The city administration ensuring this focus is vital.
