Walmart expands partnership with GolinHarris

Walmart expands partnership with GolinHarris | BBI Wal-mart | Scoop.it
BENTONVILLE, AR Walmart has expanded work with GolinHarris after consolidating its PR agency roster in the US.
Redwanur Rahman's insight:

(1) International Business Structure: Joint Ventures 

 

(2) This would benefit Wal-Mart becaause the money would be split among the two companies (cost-effective). Both companies will gain fame. since two companies are working together, more creative ideas will be brainstormed.

 

The article states: "GolinHarris will partner more closely with Walmart on US merchandise and brand PR efforts, said Walmart spokesperson Deisha Barnett. Cohn & Wolfe will no longer support the US consumer business but will continue to assist with PR for Sam's Club and the Walmart Foundation."
