Cities around the world are striving to attract people, capital and businesses with global competition in mind. The aim of this study is to determine the importance of the criteria affecting the performance of global cities in order to become a power center city. In the study, CRITIC weighted method is used with the 2022 data of London, New York, Tokyo, Paris, Singapore, Amsterdam, Seoul, Berlin, Melbourne and Shanghai, which are the top 10 cities in the Global Power City index in 2022. In addition, variables such as Economy, R&D, Cultural-Interaction, Livability, Environmental and Accessibility are discussed as performance indicators of cities. According to the findings obtained as a result of empirical analysis, the performance criterion that has the most importance for the top 10 global cities in 2022 is "accessibility". The second important criterion is "environmental". The least important performance criterion for the global 10 cities is "Cultural-Interaction". In conclusion, in line with these findings of the study, policymakers offer important recommendations for global cities to become stable powerhouse cities.
