Panel Discussion: Secondary Cities

Midsize cities will account for the largest share of urban growth in the next few decades, absorbing more than half of the urbanizing populations. These cities, largely ignored on the global stage and with weak ties to global markets, have huge impacts on national economies. How can we bring secondary cities into the global perspective? What can leaders of these cities do to assert their importance? What is the importance of secondary cities to multinational companies?

This session will take place in the Plenary Hall.

We offer simultaneous translation services (English-Bahasa Indonesia) for this session.

Moderated by Parag Khanna.
