Manila

Manila (and more broadly speaking, Metro Manila) is the economic and political capital of the Philippines, home to extensive commerce and some of the most historically and culturally significant landmarks in the country, as well as the seat of the executive and judicial branches of the government. Manila was listed as a global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2012.Manila is among the world's original Global Cities alongside Madrid and Mexico. The Manila Galleon TRADE-route being the first instance in human-history wherein world TRADE truly became global (previous world-trade routes had not yet crossed the Pacific and had not reached a global nature), made Manila a primordial foundation-stone of true globalization. Manila is the host to the Embassy of the United States in the Philippines and the Apostolic Nunciature to the Philippines. Manila has many scientific and educational institutions, numerous sport facilities, and other culturally and historically significant venues.
