I am glad to present our firm to negotiate with Wendy, the representative of Sydney shirts about a number of issues concerned by both parties. The joint agreement reached in this negotiation may operate a series of important and far-reaching influences towards the relationship between our firm and Sydney shirts. Thus, the mission of this negotiation is to solidify and reinforce a long-term business partner relationship with Sydney shirts.

Due to the intense competition in the retailing industry, building a more tied relationship with manufacturers, especially like Sydney shirts with a reputable brand image, will assist our firm in improving our store's attractiveness and desirability to customers.

Keep this in mind, during the entire process of negotiation, I will not only focus on immediate monetary benefit and return, but also reaching a long-term win-win commitment.

Agreement: I agreed...
