Pakistan among world’s most powerful countries

0

The latest edition of ‘Best Countries‘ released its list of most powerful countries in the world based on how economically and politically influential a country is.

The world’s most powerful countries may not necessarily be the most well-liked, but they are the nations that consistently dominate news headlines, preoccupy policymakers and shape economic forecasts.

More than 21,000 business leaders, general citizens and informed elites were surveyed to discover how nations are perceived on a global scale.

The US was perceived as the most powerful, followed closely by Russia and China. Pakistan also made it to the list along with other countries including Turkey and Israel.

These are the top 23 ‘most powerful’ countries in the world:
