Why Country Brands need a more strategic structure

When countries are trying to create a Country Brand strategy, they frequently do it without a strategic approach in mind and often lack a proven methodology or model for doing so. In practice, these countries learn the process as they progress and consequentially make unforeseen mistakes. As they lack comprehension of this task’s complex nature, they don't manage the process effectively.

Weiji sure does seem timely. Global turmoil inspires caution and deliberation, but also resolve and visionary action.
