Quotes

Indeed, Simon Anholt, who is regarded as the father of nation branding has said that "national image has more to do with national identity and the politics and economics of competitiveness."
...on the value of strong commercial brands to a country's nation brand, I stumbled upon the following definition of national competitiveness: "National competitiveness is a term that can be defined on a number of levels. At its most basic level, a country's competitiveness requires a good use of human and natural resources for a country to achieve some goal. The goals that a country chooses are a reflection of the philosophy of the country, but they typically have two things in common: productivity and efficiency. A country can achieve a better competitive position through its ability to introduce productivity and efficiency into its use of these human and natural resources."

South Africa’s brands, such as they are and despite the best efforts of many, are in danger of committing "brandicide"
