"Strong city economies provide jobs and incomes to raise the living standards of citizens and to improve the stability and cohesion of communities. They boost the tax base to fund better public services and generate the resources to support household remittances and state transfers to poorer regions. Strong city economies also promote productivity growth and innovation, partly because they contain the shared services, infrastructure, institutions and social amenities to attract investment, enterprises and skills."
