PART B_2

Hello, Emma. It’s great to see you again. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me.
No problem, Ron. I’d be interested to hear what you have to say.

Thank you very much. So, let me get to the point. ABS Corporation is known for producing high-quality computer monitors. However, we understand that looking for high-quality but low-cost materials could be a challenge.
Can you help me with this matter?

Certainly! As a result, I’ve come to provide a solution. We’d like to be your primary source for computer monitors.
That’s an interesting thought. Please provide me additional information.

We believe that ABS Corp. and CBN Inc. could make a good team. We manufacture a variety of high-quality computer monitors. Our proposal is to give you up to 25% discount on computer monitors if you agree to make us your exclusive supplier.
I see. Your proposition has the potential to significantly reduce our production costs, but I can’t make a judgment at this time yet. First, I’ll schedule a meeting with my supervisor, and then I’ll call you.

Sure! Thank you for listening.
