city:

. . . a populous area where people live in relatively close proximity and share certain infrastructure features in common, such as roads; the center (inner city) of a urbanized area; a municipality that has declared itself a city (City of . . .) or is commonly referred to as a city (Los Angeles — City of Angles). Many cities are relatively small compared to places of urban sprawl, compact real estate sites and high-rises or skyscrapers.

Typically, cities have one or more commercial centers (city centers) with adjacent suburbs. The names of places that are are financial, commercial, transportation, and cultural centers of regions may be used to identify cities. The names of such places may be used to identify regions — city-region. The definition of economic development provided by Wikipedia suggests that regions and thriving metropolitan economies worldwide are increasing in importance as location considerations for enterprise development. That definition also states the following:

Economic development . . . has evolved into a professional industry of highly specialized practitioners. The practitioners have two key roles: one is to provide leadership in policy-making, and the other is to administer policy, programs, and projects. Economic development practitioners generally work in public offices on the state, regional, or municipal level, or in public–private partnerships organizations that may be partially funded by local, regional, state, or federal tax money. These economic development organizations function as individual entities and in some cases as departments of local governments. Their role is to seek out new economic opportunities and retain their existing business wealth (source of quote).
