K: We can’t sign any commitment for ten years. But if your production quality is good after the first year, we could extend the contract and increase our yearly purchase.
R: That sounds reasonable. But could you shed some light on（透露）the size of your orders?
K: If we are happy with your quality, we might increase our purchase to 100,000 a year, for a two-year period.
R: Excuse me, Mr. Hughes, but it seems to me we’re giving up too much in this case. We’d be giving up the five-year guarantee for increased yearly sales.
K: Mr. Liu, you’ve got to give up something to get something.
R: If you’re asking us to take such a large gamble（冒险）for just two year’s sales, I’m sorry, but you’re not in our ballpark（接受的范围）.
K: What would it take to keep Pacer interested?
R: A three-year guarantee, not two. And a qualilty inspection（质量检查）tour after one year is fine, but we’d like some of our personnel on the team.
K: Acceptable. Anything else?
R: We’d be making huge capital outlay（资本支出）for the production process, so we’d like to set up a technology transfer agreement, to help us get off the ground（取得初步进步）.
