Sweden, known for its generous social benefits and commitment to gender equality, is considered the most reputable country in the world, according to an annual ranking by Reputation Institute. Sweden rose from third place in 2017 to first place this year, a move Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said signals that equality and freedom are key priorities for the Scandinavian country. "I am convinced that this result stems from the fact that our social model creates not only growth but also freedom, equality and security," said Löfven in a statement. "More and more people understand that inequality is a major obstacle for economic development in the world." Following Sweden this year are Finland, Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Japan, Denmark and the Netherlands to round out the top 10 most reputable countries.
