National Assembly

BGR Government Affairs has signed an eight-month $225K agreement to represent the interests of South Korea’s National Assembly in the US.

The pact calls for strategic guidance and outreach to US government officials, NGOs and key decision makers.

The work kicked off April 10, just ahead of South Korea president Yoon Suk Yeol’s state visit to the US this week to mark the 70th anniversary of the US/South Korea security pact.

French president Emmanuel Macron is the only other leader who was invited by the Biden administration for a state dinner.

Yoon will address a joint session of Congress on April 27.

BGR’s South Korea team includes Maya Seiden, international & trade practice co-head; I&T senior advisor Hunter Strupp and principal Mark Tavlarides; and PR principal Frank Ahrens.
