RESPECTED COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD
Added on: 14th Nov 2016
The most respected Asian country, Japan scored highest in
the advanced economy dimension (technology, high quality
products, well known brands).
Tying with Japan, Germany’s reputation suffered
some setbacks along with France due to the recent pressures
on the European Union and the financial situation with Greece.
Although it fared poorly in governance and business environment,
it did extremely well in almost every other category, lifestyle,
natural beauty, friendliness, culture, popular brands, etc.
Furthermore, Italians seem to be the most humble as they
rated their country significantly lower than did the rest of the world.
The UK fared slightly above average on all indicators but the
one area where it broke the top 10 was education. Behind,
Canada, Switzerland, Australia, and the Nordic countries
people rated the UK as being their top place to study.
Famous for its pristine beauty, strong economy, effective
government, and good infrastructure, Austria is the first
of the “enviable” countries on our list. These countries
are the developed economies known for their systems that
just work. Low corruption, good education, efficient healthcare,
high quality of life and effective safety nets characterize
Ireland’s reputation has shot up once again after economic
indicators began to improve. It has always scored well in
terms of appealing environment and effective government.
Scoring high in safety, ethics, responsible government,
efficiency and progressive policies, the capital of the
European Union is known for more than just its tasty waffles.
The Netherlands is the first country on our list to score in the
top 10 in all 3 categories (appealing environment,
advanced economy, effective government).
