Rokk Solutions has inked an agreement to pitch op-ed pieces from Guatemala’s former US ambassador Manuel Espina to the national news media.

The one-year agreement kicked off Aug. 3 and is renewable on a month-by-month basis.

Rokk Solutions receives a monthly retainer of $1,500 for pitching already-drafted op-eds and gets $2,500 for writing and placing the commentaries.

The Hill published an op-ed from Espina, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Arkansas Congressman Rick Crawford that carried the headline “The Case for Renewed US Engagement in Latin America."

That June 25 article urged US policymakers to “counter the strategic and economic pursuits of China in Latin America” by investing in the “Northern Triangle” countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

Rokk Solutions partners Ron Bonjean and Rodell Mollineau handle the op-ed effort.
