But the opening up of the advertising market has brought the arrival of the big networks or the reinforcement of their presence. In South Korea, in 1988, Ogilvy, Bates and Young & Rubicam sealed the first alliances with the big local groups, while in Taipei, JWT-WPP installed their own office and Saatchi & Saatchi took over its affiliate.
