strategic alliance

 Currently important business partner.
 ► “Strategic alliance is pure puff and simply a gimmick to make someone feel important enough so that they are lured into a costly proposition. Stay away from anyone who uses strategic in combination with any other term, as in strategic marketing, strategic decisions, strategic opportunity and so forth.” (Supervision, Jan. 1994, p. 6)
