Hong Kong tries and fails to hire PR firms to rebuild image

Hong Kong's government contacted eight public relations firms to try and rebuild the embattled city's image, but all of them declined the contract. The city has seen months of unrest sparked by a proposed extradition bill that has since been withdrawn. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam and her government have been widely criticised for their response to protesters. The PR firms said that "the time is not right" to restore the territory's reputation, Ms Lam told reporters.
