A: Good morning, Mr. Smith. Here is our contract. Please go over it and see if everything is in order.
B: Let me have a look. Don't you think we're supposed to add a sentence here? "In case of breach of any of the
provisions of this agreement by one party,the other party shall have the right to terminate this agreement by giving notice in written form to its opposite party.
A: OK, I'll add it in the contract. Do you have any comments on other terms?
B: Well, I think the contract needs some modifications. Our customer called us
yesterday and told us they were in urgent need of the goods. They want to see the goods on display by the end of this month.
Therefore, shall we adjust the delivery date, making it ten days or a week earlier?
A: There is little possibility to meet your requirement unless the mode of transportation is changed. As usual,it is much faster to have the goods sent by air than by railway, but in that way,you have to bear the extra freight.
B: I see. Let's do as what you say. We transport the goods by plane and the delivery date should be 25th October.Is that OK for you?
B: I'd like to emphasize once again how important your timely delivery is. If
you fail to deliver the goods at the time stipulated in the contract, our clients may turn elsewhere. We just can't stand such kind of loss.
A: Mr. Smith, it is our permanent principle that commercial integrity is maintained.So, anything else you want to bring up for discussion?
B: No, nothing more. The contract contains basically all we have agreed upon during our negotiations.
A: Good. I'll have the contract amended tonight. Shall we sign the contract tomorrow morning?
B: Oh yes. I'm glad that our negotiation has come to a successful conclusion.
Do you have any comments on other terms?
O What do you think about other terms?其他的条款如何呢?
O If you have any questions about other terms, please let us know.如果您对其他条款有疑虑，请直说。
O Well, I think the contract needs some modifications.合同需要做少许修改。
O We are supposed to go over all the terms again before we sign the formal contract.我们应该在签订正式合同之前再审视一下合同内容。
There is little possibility to meet your requirement unless the mode of transportation changed.
O Let me see. Oh, yes. We can do that.让我想想。哦，是的.我们可以做到提前交付。
O So shall we shift the delivery to an earlier date? 所以我们能将交付日期稍稍提前吗?
O Based on that, shall we advance the delivery date?基于此，我们可以将交付日期提前吗?
