Abstract:

Central America is a region without a world city. Traditionally, the region’s national projects have been based upon openness to the world economy: how do the region’s contemporary transnational projects connect to the world economy under the new conditions of openness that is contemporary globalization? Focusing upon advanced producer services, three connections into the world city network are identified: global service firms operating directly in Central American cities, local service firms operating indirectly through extra-regional world cities and global service firms operating through Latin American regional offices. Miami is confirmed as the primary world city through which Central America connects into the world economy

Keywords: Central America; advanced producer services; correspondence banks; globalization; world cities
