New Academic Book by Associate Professor Takayuki Kubo

In January 2019, Asia Pacific Studies (APS) Associate Professor KUBO Takayuki published a book entitled “Global Competitive Strategies for Cities and Regions: for the purposes of evaluating the global competitiveness of various areas within Japan”.

In addition to revealing the research and evaluation methods behind the featured rankings of different cities worldwide, this book also uses Fukuoka as an example to demonstrate how the Global Competitive Strategy proposed is applicable and relevant to other cities within Japan. Further, it puts forth the significance for cities and localities to constantly strive for regional revitalization and to be competitive in international markets while maintaining their originality and uniqueness.


This book was published with the aid of the Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) Academic Publication Subsidy.
