Luxembourg is ranked 5th on the report’s Brand Strength Index and improves its score from 2018. It follows closely behind Singapore, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany, is ahead of notably Japan and the US that also make it to the top 10.

  • Society: quality of life, corruption, cultural image, etc.
  • Investment: talent retention, use of technology, R&D, taxation, regulation, etc.
