Final details for technical visit I'd like
to reconfirm your schedule in Taiwan and add some detailed information:
1. You'll arrive in Taiwan on 5/17. I recommend that you come to Hsinchu
directly from the airport, which is located between Taipei and
Hsinchu. If you prefer, I can arrange for transportation from the
airport to bring you to Hsinchu (you can directly pay the driver).
If this arrangement is agreeable, please let me know your flight
schedule and arrival time. I'll give you more detailed instructions
2. On 5/18, I'll pick you up at the hotel and bring you to UCL. You'll
stay at UCL until the late afternoon. We'll then take a train from
Hsinchu to Chiayi.
3. On 5/19, you'll visit ABC's R&D center and give a presentation and
discuss the market potential of Zeolite and Isomerization. In the
late afternoon, you can take a train (by yourself) to Kaoshiung and
then take a taxi to the hotel.
4. On 5/20, one of my friends will meet you at the hotel and take you
to ABC's Kaohsiung Refinery. At the Refinery, you will meet with
engineers from the technical department and discuss Xylene
isomerization. The Kaohsiung Refinery's technical department is
responsible for all the technical business conducted at the Kaohsiung
Refinery and at the Linyuan Refinery. All business decisions and
transactions, such as catalyst and technology selection, are handled
by this department. My friend has recommended that you visit this
department instead of the Linyuan Refinery. Besides, if time permits,
engineers from the Linyuan Refinery can come to the Kaohsiung
Refinery and attend your meeting. I believe this would be a
preferable arrangement. Following your discussion at the Kaohsiung
Refinery, you will take a plane to Taipei with one of my friends and
stay there overnight.
5. Sorry, but I'll be unable to accompany you to Kaohsiung. However,
once your trip has been finalized, I'll make all the necessary hotel
reservations and train ticket purchases. I'll be out of town between
5/13 and 5/15. To ensure that everything has been covered, please
let me know your flight schedule (flight number, arrival time), as
well as any suggestions you might have.
6. Please do not forget to send me your company's product portfolio so
that I can pass this information on to someone who can help you.
I hope this trip will be successful. See you soon!
