Elcano Global Presence Report 2018

Author Iliana Olivié, Manuel Garcia

This edition of the Elcano Global Presence Report ranks 110 countries according to how involved they are in the globalization process, primarily through economic, military and soft power means. Key highlights include 1) that the top raking countries have maintained or strengthened their positions; 2) the extent of the gap between China and the US means Beijing is unlikely to take the top ranking spot away from Washington any time soon; 3) a slight decline in the overall level of global presence could suggest the globalization process is stagnating; and 4) Africa is lagging behind in global presence.
