In this paper, the Global City theory point of view to explain the Shanghai Government at the present stage of policy planning, and analysis of the construction of Yang shan Port and Shanghai World Expo will be held strategic implications, and then dealt with in the Global City of Shanghai in the theory of specificity, and to Shanghai construction of a Global city to do an assessment.
Shanghai in the 90s put forward the "four centers" as the strategic objectives of urban development, I believe that the construction of Shanghai Yang shan port is the main strategy of the meaning and shipping center is conducive to the promotion of economic, financial and trade center built, and the Yang shan port is a shipping center, the core project, the importance of that in here. In addition, the construction of Yang shan Port will enhance the international competitiveness of Shanghai, so that Shanghai become the world''s shipping lines an important node in the network. But I also believe that the Yang shan Port is currently in the clearance capacity of the port, loading and unloading capacity management, there is still room for improvement. Finally, and for the inadequacy of the Yang shan Port existing recommendations.
Shanghai World Expo will be the meaning of the strategy was, through the World Expo will be held along Huangpu district can place a substantial transformation, switching to an integrated service-oriented mode of production, enhance urban functions level, while supporting urban infrastructure construction, such as airport expansion, construction of urban rail transport network, will advance the progress of urban modernization.The World Expo will also bring considerable revenue related industries, in addition, the World Expo is a world-class major events, but also an important city of international marketing arena, the World Expo in Shanghai will be very far-reaching impact.
Yang shan Port and the World Expo in Shanghai is to build the contribution of Global Cities to meet the Global City, "the basic operating platform," the establishment, but the measure of the Global Cities indicators, the most important of the 500 largest multinational companies operating in number and the number of foreign banks in Shanghai New York, London, Tokyo In contrast, there is still room for growth, meaning that Shanghai is now in the Global City is more lack of transnational economic control, it is still not known as the "Global City."
