...to an overview on the structure and development of Kingston, Jamaica.

"As globalization proceeds, more cities will find themselves managing problems and opportunities that used to be the exclusive domain of national governments. And as more cities come to have populations and economies larger than those of many countries, cities will increasingly become the main players in the global economy."

Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations, June 2001
