Belarusian government has hired PR firm Huntsworth, report says
The Belarusian government has hired Huntsworth PLC, an international public relations consultancy based in the UK, to help it devise an efficient privatization campaign, reported Russian independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, as quoted by BelaPAN.
The chief executive of Huntsworth, the holding company behind financial and corporate communications businesses Citigate Dewe Rogerson and Capital Communications and PR firms Grayling, Harrison Cowley and The Red Consultancy, Peter Selwyn Gummer visited Minsk last week.
He said that his company was ready to assist the Belarusian authorities.
“Many companies in Eastern and Western Europe have been privatized with our support,” the Belarusian government’ news agency BelTA quoted Mr. Gummer as saying in Minsk. Huntsworth analyzed in what ways it could make its contribution to the privatization campaign, he said.
He said that Huntsworth had opened a Minsk representation of a subsidiary company, determined to continue investing its resources in Belarus, he said.
