Ivan: I understand you are kidding but I like the sessions we

are having here. There are a few important things 1 have

learned here. And I've met some businessmen whose

business looks very promising for us.

before we get down to business.

don't mind.

Frank: I agree with you here. We studied your enquiry for our security devices and we could offer you some very mod­ern ones.

Ivan: Could I see them while I'm here? Then it will be much easier for me and the General Director of my company to make a decision about the range of devices to buy.

Frank: No problem. Our Production Director will take you to our production shop and you will see all the devices we are offering to our customers at present. We have sold quite a lot of each type and we have not got a single complaint. They have never failed our customers.

Ivan: It sounds very convincing. And will the Production Di­rector be coming soon?

Frank: The Secretary will invite him after we have coffee.
