WDR – World Design Rankings, also offers data-driven perspectives through its ‘Design Business Insights’ breakdown, evaluating countries based on their success in diverse creative fields. These organized insights, revealing strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities, serve as valuable cues for policymakers in determining potential areas for government outreach.
