201 I’d like to know something about your foreign trade policy.
202 It is said that a new policy is being put into practice in your foreign trade.
203 Our foreign trade policy has always been based on equality and mutual benefit and exchange of needed goods.
204 We have adopted much more flexible methods in our dealings.
205 We have mainly adopted some usual international practices.
206 You have also made some readjustment in your import and export business, have you?
207 I’d like to know some information about the current investment environment in your country?
208 We are sure both of us have a brighter future.
209 We had expected much lower prices.
210 They are still lower than the quotations you can get elsewhere.
211 I can show you other quotations that are lower than yours.
212 When you compare the prices, you must take everything into consideration.
213 I can assure you the prices we offer you are very favorable.
214 I don’t think you’ll have any difficulty in pushing sales.
215 But the market prices are changing frequently.
216 It’s up to you to decide.
217 The demand for our products has kept rising.
218 How long will your offer hold good?
219 We have new methods like compensation trade and joint ventrue.
220 I think a joint venture would be beneficial to us both.
221 Please give us your proposal if you’re ready for that.
222 Here is our contract.
223 Please go over it and see if everything is in order
224 Don’t you think we should add a sentence here like this?
225 If one side fails to observe the contract, the other side is entitled to cancel it.
226 The loss for this reason should be charged by the side breaking the contract.
227 Do you have any comment on this clause?
228 No wonder everyone speak highly of your commercial integrity.
229 It is our permanent principle that contracts are honored and commercial integrity is maintained.
230 Anything else you want to bring up for discussion.
231 You may rest assured that the shipment will be duly delivered.
232 We must have your LC at least one month before the time of shipment.
233 The contract contains basically all we have agreed upon during our negotiations.
234 I hope no questions about the terms.
235 I’m glad our negotiation has come to a successful conclusion.
236 I hope this will lead to further business between us.
237 We’ll sign two originals, each in Chinese and English language.
238 I am ready to sign the agreement.
239 I’m sure you need an original signature, not a faxed copy.
240 So I will receive and sign it overnight.
241 We’ll still be able to meet the deadline.
242 I will keep you posted.
243 What is your hurry?
244 I’m sorry to burst in on you like this, but I’m really upset.
245 What on earth has happened to trouble you so?
246 I’m afraid I have bad news for you.
247 The woolen sweaters you delivered do not match the sample we provided.
248 You agreed that we could make a little change in design if necessary.
249 Our clients are very critical on quality.
250 What do you want us to do?
251 Our clients want a replacement.
252 It’s a bit too hard.
253 It’s only the background color that’s not identical.
254 It sounds like a reasonable solution.
255 You are saying you turn on the computer and see nothing?
256 I would say that you have a larger problem than just the monitor.
257 Whatever it is, I need this computer to work.
258 Is there any way you could bring it in to be looked at?
259 If not, our repairman can come to you.
260 I would prefer if he comes here.
261 Our first bill came yesterday, and we have some questions.
262 I sure hope I can answer them for you.
263 It does appear that way.
264 Let me do some research on this and get back with you tomorrow.
265 As they are in such a damaged condition, we doubt we will be able to take delivery.
266 Do you know the percentage of the damaged portion?
267 We should require a survey report, so that we may know the extent of the damage.
268 You can see for yourselves the damaged condition and the reason why they are unassailable.
269 We should make it clear whether the damage was caused in transit or during the unloading process, or by other reasons.
270 The goods were carefully packed and shipped here in excellent condition.
271 Then the damage must be caused at somewhere along the line where the goods weren’t handled properly.
272 I would like to present our comments in the following order.
273 First of all, I will outline the characteristics of our product.
274 When I present my views on the competitive products, I will refer to the patent situation.
275 Please proceed with your presentation.
276 Yes, we have been interested in new system.
277 Has your company done any research in this field?
278 Yes, we have done a little. But we have just started and have nothing to show you.
279 If you are interested, I will prepare a list of them.
280 By the way, before leaving this subject, I would like to add a few comments.
281 I would like to ask you a favor.
282 Would you let me know your fax number?
283 Would it be too much to ask you to respond to my question by tomorrow?
284 Could you consider accepting our counterproposal?
285 I would really appreciate your persuading your management.
286 I would like to suggest that we take a coffee break.
287 Maybe we should hold off until we have covered item B on our agenda.
288 As a matter of fact, we would like to discuss internally regarding item B.
289 I see. Let’s break now.
290 Shall we take a break?
291 Let us take a break now.
292 Let me suggest we take a break.
293 May I propose that we break for coffee now?
294 If you insist, I will comply with your request.
295 We must stress that these payment terms are very important to us.
296 Please be aware that this is a crucial issue to us.
297 I do not know whether you realize it, but this condition is essential to us.
298 Our policy is not to grant exclusivity.
299 There should always be exceptions to the rule.
300 I would not waste my time pursuing that.
