Advisory Council Devotes 1993 Futures Activities to Cities and Towns in the Global Economy


Cheek, Dorothy, Barnes, Bill, Nation's Cities Weekly


During 1993, NLC's Advisory Council will focus the Futures Process on the topic of "Cities and Towns in the Global Economy." With this article, Nation's Cities Weekly inaugurates the 1993 "Futures Forum" which will carry information on this topic every other week until late Spring.

A new futures topic is selected each year by the NLC First Vice President, in this case, Mayor Sharpe James of Newark, N.J. The Advisory Council will devote 1993 to exploring the topic, culminating in the annual Futures Report which will be released at the Congress of Cities in Orlando. This then provides the basis for implementation activities during 1994, the presidential year of James.

James addressed the Advisory Council during their meeting at the Congress of Cities in New Orleans. He suggested that municipal-leaders consider 'how cities" and' towns can use the international market to create new jobs and markets." He urged the Advisory Council to 'think globally" in order to assist municipal leaders to do likewise.

The United States is witnessing a breakdown of barriers to international trade.

During his presentation, James noted that the Soviet Union is now the commonwealth of independent states, the People's Republic of China has recently opened' its borders for limited partnership s with other nations, the European economic market is coming together, East and West Germany are now one, and Japan is spending billions to improve their infrastructure to become more competitive."

He indicated that local officials should view these international events as opportunities to assist them in creating new jobs and local economic development and to further promote and advance international exchanges in culture, technology, education, medicine and improved industrialization.
