It seems that we agree that Paris, NYC, Tokyo, and London Top 4 cities. Now let's talk about Top 10: 5th~10th. My candidates are:

East Asia: Seoul, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Osaka, Nagoya, Hongkong, Yokohama

South Asia: Singapore, Jakarta, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Delhi, Mumbai

Middle East: Riyadh, Cairo

Europe: Madrid, Istanbul, Moscow, Berlin, Rome, Saint Petersburg, Athens

Oceania: Sydney, Melbourne

North America: Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto

Middle & South America: Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires

HK doesn't belong with the other four. HK isn't a first tier business center and it has little standing as a cultural center.

Alright, I edited it. Now, HK is one of the candidates from E. Asia.

Why Athens? with all respect
The list is just my own opinion. I don't want the discusssion to be limited by my list at all; you can add & remove cities to the list as much as you want.

Wouldn't it be too much if HK is out while Toronto, Sydney, Shanghai, and Beijing are in. Could you support your idea?

What criteria... hmmm... I would say, sizes in economy and population, buildings, city layout, landscape, culture, transportation, standard of living, telecommunication, and tourism etc. I don't think political power is something to be discussed here.

It's the capital of a booming country of one bilion people.

Every day that passes it is getting more and more important. London has done an impressive job (better than any other in Europe IMO) of rolling with the changes. And London, luckily will benefit from India's rise more than most.
