Sri Lanka hired its eighth American public relations firm this year to reach out to US media, officials and policy makers.
Levick, an organisation subcontracted to the Liberty International Group, has been hired to speak on behalf of the Sri Lankan central bank.
“Levick’s mission is to utilize communications supported advocacy to tell Sri Lanka’s amazing story of recovery after a decades long civil war against a brutal terrorist organization, as well as to assist the Central Bank in communicating opportunities for trade and investment between our two nations,” president of Levick, Mark Irion, said in a statement to The Hill.
The contract which will last until July 2015 is worth $760,000.
The Sri Lankan government and central bank have signed contracts with a host of public relations firms in the past including the Majority Group, Patton Boggs, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, Qorvis Communications, Thompson Advisory Group and several others.
