BerlinRosen has picked up a contract to provide media relations and strategic communications services to the Cambodian National Rescue Movement, an exiled group formed in January to promote free and fair elections in its homeland.
Reuters reported that Cambodia's Supreme Court dissolved the Cambodian National Rescue Party, which was the major opposition party to the country's long-time prime minister Hun Sen, and jailed its leadership.
New York-based BR began work for Paris-based CNRM March 6 in a program that will include messaging, fact sheets/backgrounders, press releases, op-eds, "explainer pieces," videos (shot outside of Cambodia), digital strategic guidance, website development and meetings with leaders in the US.
BR's representation does not include lobbying, though the firm may engage in political activities in its role as consultant.
The public affairs firm is to receive a $250K fee for its services, which will run through Aug. 10.
