31 火 Lesson34 予算との比較をする

Okay. Let’s listen to today’s business scene.

As I understand it, we were approached by several TV shopping companies at France. Does that mean we’re in a stronger position to negotiate?

Not necessarily. It’s true that they want to do business with us. But they’re aggressively looking for all sorts of attractive products.

That’s good to know. Now I found the proposal from Bon Shopping most attractive. Their pricing in particular. Their quote is within our budget.

Yes. And there should be room for price negotiation.
