The article considers the achieved results of the Marca España project, a strategy for promoting the image of Spain abroad, carried out by the People’s Party from 2001 to 2004. and from 2012 to 2018 Of the 6 main areas for evaluating Spain’s national brand, the weakest are the investment climate, the made in effect and the political situation in the country. The design of a territorial brand is based on a strategic approach. The lack of continuity of foreign policy of governments led to the fact that 2003 - 2011 were lost. The research results of the Reputation Institute and Real Instituto Elcano as a whole show weak positive dynamics and a rather favorable prognosis for the perception of Spain abroad, which indicates the competitiveness of the Spanish national brand.
