Quezon City is one of the most dynamic metropolitan areas in the Philippines today. In a survey of 200 Asian cities conducted in 2007 by the AsiaBiz Strategy, an investment and trade promotion consultancy based in Singapore, as commissioned by the London Financial Times, Quezon City joined the ranks of Hong Kong, Singapore and Taipei, as one of the top 10 Asian Cities of the Future. It was ranked no. 7. Hong Kong, Singapore and Taipei were the top three.
Consistently figuring in the top 10, and practically outranking other Philippine cities except in one category, Quezon City was assessed No. 5 in the category, "Best Economic Potential." It was third best in Asia, in terms of "Cost Effectiveness," sixth best, in terms of "Best Human Resources," and tenth best, in terms of "Quality of Life."
In a local survey also conducted in 2007 (the last local ranking of Metro cities), Quezon City was regarded as the most competitive city in Metro Manila and the 2nd most competitive city in the Philippines, based on the responses of businessmen surveyed by the Asian Institute of Management, using the same methodology as the Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development which prepares the World Competitiveness Yearbook.
