The 2009-updated version of the Nation Brands Index hit the news this week, but unfortunately Greece is not counted in the 50 countries considered. It’s a real pity, because it would be very interesting to look at how Greece’s national image has changed over the December 2008 riots and the summer wildfires – two news that got widespread, global coverage and that did not portray Greece in a very positive light.
We can only wait now for the Country Brands Index, another celebrated nation branding index, where Greece is considered. I hope it’s released soon. Anyhow, for those interested in the results of this year’s edition of the NBI, you can read the results of the Nation Brands Index 2009 or an analysis of the Nation Brands Index 2009 at Nation-Branding.info.
