This article examines the business connections between Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai and other major world cities investigated using the interlocking network model based upon the location strategies of advanced producer service firms. The results show that Shanghai is better connected to the more important world cities such as London and New York than Beijing; and Beijing is found to be better connected to political world cities such as Washington and Brussels, and to other Pacific Asian cities, than Shanghai
