Qorvis has picked up a $70K monthly retainer pact for strategic communications and media relations services for Cambodia.

The DC-based firm also will work to promote public awareness of Cambodia along with the opportunities for travel and tourism.

The contract went into effect Sept 1. It is an open-ended pact that may be terminated by either party with 30 days written notice. Under the agreement, Cambodia is responsible for the “accuracy, completeness and propriety of information” that it supplies to Qorvis.

It notes that Qorvis can guarantee neither that the media will use the PR material nor report it in a way that Cambodia intended. The Publicis Groupe unit also retains the right to reject any material that it considersuntrue, indecent, libelous, unlawful, or otherwise prejudicial” to its interests of that of the client.

Chum Sounry, Cambodia’s ambassador to the US, Qorvis president Michael Petruzzello and VP-finance Jonathan Nicholas signed the PR contract.
