This ranking is initiated in the blue book of urban competitiveness by the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries — A Special Report on China Urban Competitiveness (1973-2015): An Open City, A Win-Win Future.
The CFI covers five indexes: interaction length, range, depth, willingness, and frequency. The report says Wuhan is China's inland cities' paradigm for city friendly interaction, ranking at the top of the index of interaction length among all the sample cities, and performing best with interaction depth, primarily in the areas of education/talents, politics, and culture/arts. Wuhan also leads the ranking for interaction frequency for its advantages in educational resources.
