There is now global competition between metropolitan areas. These dense and connected urban areas have specifi c features in terms of housing, transport, the environment and the distribution of economic activity. Acting on these issues is central to the Greater Paris Metropolis’ mission as it seeks to promote the well-being of its residents and its territory.
All of these issues reveal the obvious need for the Greater Paris Metropolis. This inter-municipal establishment pools resources and simplifi es the administrative system. It restores balance to the territory, making solidarity a top priority. As the number one centre for employment with the largest offi ce space anywhere in Europe, the Greater Paris Metropolis is a major driver of global growth.
