One of Washington’s leading lobbying shops and PR Firms, The Glover Park Group filed documents on Friday indicating the Egyptian Government had hired them. The documents indicated work will encompass services including to “provide public diplomacy, strategic communications counsel and government relations services.” While fees were not included in the first set of filings, future filings will require said information.
The United States suspended partial foreign aid to Egypt which may have resulted in Egypt hiring Glover Park, whose previous clients have included the Columbian and South Korean governments.
Filings include a report that work “will include communications associated with the Government’s implementation of its Road Map to build the institutions of an inclusive democratic state through parliamentary and presidential elections.
”Further, Glover Park will support the Egyptian government’s communications “with U.S. government officials, business community, non-governmental audiences and the media” as well as help with “fostering and facilitating exchanges between the U.S. and Egypt.”
