Las Comunidades Autónomas no aparecen mencionadas por los turistas cuando se les pide que citen de manera espontánea atributos que identifiquen con España, según los resultados del primer estudio de la Cátedra Meliá sobre intangibles turísticos y marca España, publicados por HOSTELTUR noticias de turismo en ‘Déficit de trato y servicio en la oferta turística española’. En realidad sólo tres marcas turísticas se cuelan entre los primeros 50 atributos citados: Barcelona en el séptimo puesto, Madrid en el 21 y Mallorca en el 46.

The north-east of England: Britain's Detroit?
Christina Knutsson's insight:

The decline of cities and regions...  long-term vision, sound and realistic strategies for urban and economic development are essential to keep places alive and competitive. Many secondary regions face the difficult balance of raise and fall, transitions, structural changes and eventually the decline of traditional industries both extractive and productive, as well as services. Indeed a challenge for the North East to come up with a future plan... Reinvention takes strong vision, courage, and leadership with stakeholders moving in the same direction, investment and a dose of patience. It can be done, others have. Good luck!

European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes called the ban "groundless, pointless, cowardly" and the U.S. State Department likened it to "21st century book burning."

The effect of the Twitter ban on the economy in Turkey | GDP Global: Country and City Branding and Image | Scoop.it

“The ban is not good in terms of Turkey’s perception, but on the other hand there is also a situation that affects Turkey’s image. Let’s hope that this is solved within the framework of our own laws ... The foreign investor should be able to say, ‘Legal security fully functions in this country.’ If we cannot make him say this, we cannot bring foreign investors.”  Deputy Prime Minister in charge of the economy Ali Babacan, who also spoke at the same summit, said he did not imagine that the Twitter ban would last very long: “
