What is a Global City?

I often help interpret in English as a volunteer. Yesterday, I attended an event to help the participants in it. It was a bigger event than I had expected. When I arrived at the venue, its serious atmosphere overpowered me...lol

There were about three hundred attendees, which were overseas students, business people, the faculty and civil servants. They separated into small groups and discussed a few themes.
They, overseas students in particular, were enthusiastic and showed great zeal for social reforms to globalize our city. A student from China told that Japanese students were apt to be satisfied when they finished their assignment, but it wasn't their goals. They should be more enthusiastic. I thought he had a point.
Another attendee told that the more overseas students we had, the more flexibility in our educational system and tuition we were required.
A business person told that we had some information for overseas students to a certain degree, but in fact there wasn't enough for them. If our city aims to globalize, the civil administration, the faculty and private enterprises should cooperate with each other and share each information.

It was a constructive discussion and I was inspired and enjoyed a whole lot.
