In May 2001, Hong Kong launched a campaign to promote Hong Kong as Asia's Word City at the Fortune Global Forum, which was attended by more than 500 of the world's most influential business leaders, China's President Jiang Zemin, and former U.S. President William Clinton. This was the highlight, to date, of Tung Chee-hwa's, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), efforts to push for developing Hong Kong into a "world city", since the change of Administration in 1997 (from a British colony to an independent system within China). While the idea of being a "world city" appeals to many different groups within Hong Kong, there has been much disagreement about what constitutes a "world city", and what Hong Kong should focus on to achieve such status. This case is designed for an MBA level course in International Business. It allows for a discussion of the role of cities in the regional and global economy, fosters an understanding of Hong Kong as a distinctive economy, and develops skills in making and evaluating economic policy at the city level.
