SHANGHAI — Bates China(达彼思) has been awarded the Shanghai General Motors (SGM) business, it was announced today by Michael Bungey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Bates Worldwide.

 "We are proud to have been chosen by SGM, and salute Bates China for its win in an intensive 6-month pitching process.  This win is significant for many reasons, one of the most prominent being that it once again validates the power of our 'Think Global.  Act Local(R)' operating philosophy," said Bungey.
