Confirmation reminders

2.8 Reminders (for approval of technical visit)

August 12, 1991
Dear Mr. Kawasaki,

Previous conversation regarding proposed visit It was a pleasure having you with us in May. During the meeting of the Asia and Pacific Council for Science and Technology on May 15, I mentioned to you the possibility of the Dye Industry Waste Minimization Group scheduling a technical visit to Japan. I also asked you to contact dye manufacturers in Japan regarding our visit, and to arrange the Group's itinerary.

Purpose of visit and those making the visit I've provided some basic information on the Visiting Group below:
1. Purpose: to evaluate successful cases and the current status of the Japanese dye industry with respect to technology, equipment, and information on industrial waste minimization.
2. The group will be composed of officials from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, ROC, as well as representatives from Taiwan's dye and finishing industries. The dye manufacturers the group would like to visit include ABC Corporation, DEF Corporation, GHI Corporation, and other leading companies that you might recommend."

Reminder on the scheduled visit Three months have passed without any news from you regarding this technical visit. I would be most grateful if you could advise us on the status of the visit so that we can begin making necessary arrangements.

Thanks in advance for your kind assistance.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Dr. Jones,

Regarding my fax transmission of April 15, I have not yet received your response. Reason for prompt approval regarding technical visit At my institution, at least two weeks are required for the application process for foreign business travel. Therefore, we need to have your confirmation, as well as the complete visit itinerary, before April 26.

Thanks in advance for your prompt reply.

Sincerely yours,
