New report says Greece has 26th best nation brand

According to a new series of reports issued by EastWest Communications, Greece has the 26th best nation brand in the world.

The report is based upon the tone of the mention every UNO country gets every time in leading world media. With algorithms, EastWest can analyze whether the mention’s tone is positive or negative. According to EastWest, the algorithm not only uses a vast lexicon comprising 16,000 words and phrases, but also analyzes grammatical connections, not just word proximity. I’ve done a bit larger mention of this new report on my website on Nation Branding.

Here are the top-27 results for Q2 2008:

Not a bad place for Greece, considering that 192 countries were analyzed, but I guess there’s room for improvement.
