In a statement to Campaign Asia-Pacific, a Sony spokesperson said: “Sony Electronics Asia Pacific and Sony Mobile Communications Singapore are looking to form a collaborative relationship with a PR agency that has a track record of solid PR expertise, creative communication strategies and digital smarts. This request for pitch gives us a chance to explore and discover new talent and new ideas.”
