DIALOGUE. AT THE COMPANY OFFICE

Mr. Klimenko is at the office of Continental Equipment. He is having an appointment with the managers of this company.

- Good morning, gentlemen! How are you?

- Fine, thanks. And how are you getting on?

- Very well, thank you.

- Let me tell you about our company. As you know, Mr. Klimenko, we produce processing equipment. Our firm consists of 6 departments: Production, Sales, Export, Financial, Personnel and Research & Development. The last one is the newest at the company. It was created five years ago... We are managed by the Meeting of Shareholders and the Board of Directors. Earlier the Chairman of the Company was one of the senior partners, but now it is Mr. Rogers, as you know. Currently we employ about 1600 people. Our turnover is more than $300 million.

- You will work with our Export Department. We export our equipment to 5 cou-tries. We also have two subsidiary companies in Holland and Germany with headquarters in those countries.

- Are they your subsidiaries or branches?

- They are our subsidiaries. Each company trades under its own name. We are looking for new partners in Eastern Europe as well, as we would like to expand our activities. That's why Mr. Cartwright went to Kyiv to establish personal contacts with your company. Have you read all our correspondence with your Director?

- Yes, I think so. We investigated your business proposal thoroughly.

- Have you got our price-lists and catalogues with you now or shall I ask Miss Elliot to bring a copy?

- Thank you, but 1 have them with me as well as copies of your letters. I expect to make the Draft Contract here, maybe by the end of this week, and to conclude the Contract with you after discussing it with my Director by phone.

- All right. Let us get down to business. Today and tomorrow we were going to talk about terms of payment and delivery.

- Right. And the day after tomorrow we'll be talking about packing and transportation.

- Then I plan to go to London, for three days. As you know, there will be an exhibition. Will you join me?

- Yes, with pleasure. It would be very helpful for the purpose of my visit.

- I hope so. And after that you'll have enough time for a visit to our factory and to go sight-seeing.

- That suits me fine. I expect to submit the Draft contract to my Director by fax not later than next Wednesday.
