In recent decades, thanks to the strengthening of globalization the economic and social procedures have been transforming. The local economic development theories came to the front pointing to the fact that city-regions have decisive role in the increase of competitiveness. Therefore, numerous researchers aim to elaborate such analysis methods by which the competitiveness of a certain territorial unit can be measured. In this way they can facilitate and raise the competitiveness of territorial units by the elaboration of strategic steps based on their competitive advantages. This study1 investigates those methodological approaches by which the competitiveness of cityregions can be determined. The competitiveness of city-regions can be measured by different indicators. In this study, we will overview six internationally recognized index systems with benchmarking method. Then we will try to adapt and evaluate them for Hungarian circumstances.
