Cities due to globalization-induced have become centers of complex activities, competing locally and internationally with highly progressive cities and degenerating others. As cities represent the driving force of economic, social, and cultural development, so we must define the stages of development and establish a system for arranging these cities and determining their locations in this process. our paper attempts to help Egyptian cities enhance their competitiveness. Twelve global power city index indicators for each city over the period 2015–2022 represent five urban functions: Economy, Research and Development, Cultural Interaction, Environment, and Accessibility have been utilized.
