Abstract: In order to engage meaningfully with the advanced developing countries and to tailor bilateral and regional relationships it is imperative to review available data and indicators for the sake of advancing policy-relevant knowledge. To do that, and to position itself correctly amongst the other global players, the EU needs to have access to the holistic country-level information. It is therefore important to pull together a range of significant indicators and to asses emerging power centres and regional interdependences, as well as to evaluate critically countries' own strategic autonomy. But rather than implying autonomy, the notion of balance, dependence and interdependence in the highly interlinked and globalised environment should be looked at. Holistic and multicriteria country-level information through the interdisciplinary approach would combine existing knowledge with geographical factors such as location, geo-political interdependence, regional security, human development, economic stability and legal frameworks, as well as sustainability and how it affects the countries global and regional influence. In addition, with inclusion of future scenario modelling and geo-politics, it would allow to identify game-changing factors and to adjust more rapidly to contemporary shifts within the multipolar globalization, to build forecasts and to anticipate shifts of the entire spectrum of foreign policy relationships with those countries, aiming to promote EU's interests at the global stage.
