A global hub of international business, New York along with London and Tokyo, is one of the 3 ‘Command Centres’ for the world economy and has a significant impact on every aspect of business from banking, finance, world trade, new media, tourism and transportation. As a leading financial centre, with the world’s largest stock exchange, New York houses 45 of the Fortune 500 companies and simply cannot fail to inspire even the toughest to please!
