PTI hires another US lobbying firm to improve relations with America

 PTI USA signed contract with a Washington-based lobbying firm, Praia Consultants LLC for six months

PTI has hired another US lobbying firm to build strong relations with American administration. Documents that surfaced yesterday confirm that PTI USA signed a contract with a Washington-based lobbying firm, Praia Consultants LLC, to support the party’s goals for “good relations with the United States and the Pakistani diaspora in the US.”

The lobbying firm is hired to build good relations with the US decision-makers after accusing the country of toppling its government. PTI launched anti-America campaign after Imran Khan was ousted from power last year. 

The contract was signed on February 21 for six months, according to the documents filed with the US Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. PTI USA, which is based in New York, is the principal client of the lobbying firm which will be paid $8,333.00 per month.

 “During the term of this agreement, the firm shall provide expert advice regarding the client’s relationship with the United States government and institutions.

Furthermore, the firm shall organize meetings with several key US decision-makers and will provide guidance in terms of the content of the meetings, the contract states. Additionally, the agreement will continue for an additional six months till January 31, 2024, if both parties have no objections and provide written approval thereto by June 30, 2023.

Last year, the PTI hired a lobbying and PR firm, Fenton/Arlook to provide public relations services, including but not limited to distributing information to and briefing journalists, placing articles and broadcasts, arranging interviews with representatives or supporters of PTI, advising on social media efforts and other such public relations services. Fenton/Arlook was hired at the cost of $25,000 per month.

In recent months a number of US lawmakers and influential figures had spoken in favour of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, asking the Pakistani authorities to follow the law of the land.
