Finn Partners has inked a $40K monthly contract with South Korea for business grassroots and outreach services.
The U.S. and South Korea have agreed to a free trade pact that is expected to bolster the $67B in commerce between the countries by at least 25 percent.
The pact, however, has met political opposition in Korea and will be a major issue in the Spring election.
The Democratic United Party released an open letter to President Obama earlier this month threatening to abolish the deal unless it is renegotiated.
Jessica Ross, general manager of FP’s Washington office, and Robin Crawford, senior partner, lead the account that runs through the rest of 2012.
Finn Partners is part of Ruder Finn Group.
