31 月 Lesson33 ミーティングの目的を述べる
Today I’d like to discuss our marketing strategy.

Sorry, I’m late. I read your text after I went to our usual room.
That’s OK. I needed to change the room at the last minute because of maintenance work. So, shall we get started? Today I’d like to discuss our marketing strategy for ASEAN countries.
In terms of our grope’s total sales in Asia, about 80 percent come from China, Taiwan and Korea.
That means ASEAN countries account for less than 20 percent?
Correct.
Our region should be able to contribute more.

Hi Lucy

I’ve just been told that our usual meeting room is not available today because of maintenance work. I’ve tried to find another room, but all the other meeting rooms are booked up.

So, let’s cancel the meeting for now. Sorry for the short notice.

Regards
Naoya
