What does this mean for us? y Thankfully Dilip Cherian.´ . ³ The public voice did not use to have a mechanism for expression. That is where more deals are done. I think it is good to have public relations because you bring the voice to the realm of public policy. analysis and scrutiny rather than discuss it inside a closed-door committee room. Founder of Perfect Relations answers some pertinent questions:  On corporate lobbying pitting public interest against public relations.

³I think effective lobbying is what is happening out in the open. which have bigger voices than they deserve. What happens behind dark curtains takes place because our political process is thwarted by microinterests.What does this mean for us?  On his take on PR ³Lobbying´.´ ³Grey areas ought to be managed by the practioners themselves and this is not a call for a self-regulatory body´ . Micro-interest groups manipulate political processes through give and take.

Thank you Dilip cherian .
