According to Foreign Agents Registration Act documents filed in August, Keybridge will distribute press releases to the media with news regarding Honduras, will petition the media to interview and write articles about Honduran representatives and will also monitor the media for news of interest to the Central American nation.

Keybridge is performing the work on behalf of D.C.-based government consulting practice Gus West Government Affairs, which was hired by Honduras in February to improve bilateral relation between Honduras and the United States by arranging meetings with government officials and think tank policy organizations and informing those leaders of ongoing Honduran initiatives in a bid to establish the country as a top U.S. ally.

Keybridge, which was founded in 2003, specializes in op-eds and earned media campaigns, as well as issues advocacy and web development.
