As result of globalisation, cities become hubs of global circulation of goods, people, money, capital and commodities. This study provides empirical data, which support the fact that reterritorialisation imply the construction of key transport and communication infrastructures for urban-regional integration, such as underground, highways, ports, airports and railways. On this basis, the case of Bilbao is explored as a unit of analysis which reveals, while confirming several theoretical elements, that in spite of supranational agencies or international capital do not play a significant role in urban development, a city can achieve some global integration.
