Bullish about Asian PR industry

WPP CEO Sir Martin Sorell is bullish about the PR industry’s growth in Asia.

“The things that keep me awake at night are the Internet and China,” WPP CEO Sir Martin Sorell has told PRWeek…. “Where once the big clients all came from North America – General Motors, Microsoft and so on – increasingly they will come from Asia, such as Korean industrial firms, Indian software companies and Chinese computer manufacturers.”

WPP is one of the world's largest communications services groups, employing 91,000 people working in over 2,000 offices in 106 countries. Hill & Knowlton, Burson-Marsteller and Ogilvy PR Worldwide are among WPP’s PR businesses.
