The Falkland Islands Government hands corporate brief to Edelman

The Falkland Islands Government has handed an international corporate reputation brief to Edelman.

Profitable: Falkland Islands
Profitable: Falkland Islands

The agency will work with the government of the British territory for the next three years, delivering a media and stakeholder relations programme across its international network.

The brief is understood to be largely in response to the increased international interest in the islands, driven by discoveries of potentially profitable oilfields in territorial waters this year.

Sukey Cameron, Falkland Islands Government UK representative, said: 'The Falkland Islands are a British overseas territory, with a modern, diversified economy and a wonderful quality of life. We will be working together to tell that story.'

Earlier this year, PRWeek revealed the Falkland Islands Government had initiated a trawl for international comms consultancy. Edelman won the account after a competitive pitch against four other agencies and already handles FIG's public affairs. Keene Public Affairs was the previous incumbent on certain aspects of the brief.
