Mayors as Important part of a Metropolitan Area
A city born and governed by a mayor is surely a plausible area. It can be more peaceful and active than other areas that may not have one. They keep the peace and order in a metropolitan area more in place and organized. But, more than this, mayors still plays another role in the metropolitan area they are governing.
Over the Past Few Years, Countries surely have observed that no country can live and prosper with just being alone, just like men. So for this, countries and metropolitan areas within them, have secured operations to export and import products out of the area to have a more reliable investment. One of the questions of local participants of these operations often asks the role of mayors and their offices to these operations.
They may not understand how a mayor can bring value to an international business. All they may think about are that private areas can handle this kind of businesses. But they may be proven wrong about this. Some findings from Brookings proved this and said that governments of metropolitan areas can be referred to as global enablers which make the mayors or leaders catalysts to different successful global trades.
If you’ll observe more carefully and concentrate at the bigger picture, you may say that governments are the one that sets the tone and potential for global businesses by setting a level of transparency, security, dependability and predictability. You may not be aware but governments can do roles that private sectors can’t possible do, like establishing the tax climate, implementing regulations, crafting immigration policies, investing necessary resources in infrastructure, and signing free trade agreements.
Moving out into the world and carrying the businesses to success may only be possible by building relationships. Officials who are elected gain the ability to open doors to opportunities for successful global trades. This is because elected leaders are recognized as the primary representatives of their jurisdictions in markets throughout the world. Well-orchestrated mission trips to foreign markets grab media attention, create buzz, and secure meetings with public and private sector leaders that support the building of relationships and ultimately result in business transactions and jobs.
The mayors and officials may only be guides to people living in a metropolitan area at first sight. But once, you’ve looked at the bigger picture, you can say that these officials plays a vital role in the success of metropolitan area businesses that are released to the world. They make a metropolitan area globally competitive.
