MDK and Bob Chua.jpgThe newly formed GO Communications Group have acquired one of Thailand's leading Public Relations agencies DC Consultants.

This is the first step in GO Communications regional expansion plans. The group also includes GO Communications Malaysia, voted Malaysia's best Public Relations agency. Within the next 12 months the GO Communications Group will embark on a strategic acquisition exercise aimed at building Asia's largest independent Public Relations network.

Negotiations are already underway with Public Relations agencies in Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Sri Lanka.

The newly formed Group Board will comprise of GO Communications Group Chairman, Bob Chua, Michael de Kretser CEO of GO Malaysia, Peter de Kretser COO and Danai Chanchaochai, CEO of DC Consultants Thailand.

"Public Relations has today become a critical component of every company's marketing plans, and our regional and vertical depth are increasingly well placed to cater to Asia's increasingly sophisticated communication demand," said Chua.

"Both multinational and local companies in the region are beginning to understand that Public Relations is a cost effective and potent tool to build brands, awareness, create promotional campaigns and most importantly increase the bottom line." Chua added, "through our geographic expansion we can provide these tools, innovation and coverage to organisations throughout the region and beyond."
