Re : Mr L
I have been instructed by my client, Mr L, to write and seek an
appointment with you to discuss how the American interests can be
protected in connection with his application for a B1 visa.
Mr L is the Deputy General Manager of Company C, the Chinese
Representative Company of Company A, an American company
headquartered in Redwood City, California.
Company A is the world''s leading supplier of polymeric heat
exchangers for a quarter century with over one million heat
exchangers installed worldwide, including systems installed at the
following locations in China :
BH Technology Building
CNB Broadcasting Building
BWT Certre - Phase One
BWT Centre - Phase Two
Equipment supplied so far has been in excess of USD 2 million.
Mr Lis required to accompany a few decision makers of Phases 3
& 4 of the BWT Centre in Beijing to attend meetings at Company A
with a view to finalising contracts amounting to USD 1 million for
the Ice Thermo Storage Systems supplied by Company A.
His proposed trip is to be financed by Company C, which has
earmarked RMB 150,000 for the purpose.
In an invitation letter from Company A, it has been pointed out
by the President of the company that there are competitors from
other countries apart from USA bidding for the project and it is
crucial for Mr L to attend the on-site meetings as he has been
Company A''s representative in China looking after its interests for
a couple of years already.
Mr L applied for a B1 visa twice but was rejected on both
occasions. From what he described of the interviews, it would appear
that his failure was not due to any adverse report that the Embassy
may have in its possession of which we are not aware.
The successful signing of contracts for Phases 3 & 4 of the
BWT Centre in Beijing will consolidate the position of Company A as
a leading supplier of ice thermo storage systems to sizeable
construction projects in China. Apart from the USD 1 million
involved in Phases 3 & 4, the potential economic benefits to
America is not to be sniffed at.
Admittedly, America is enjoying a period of unparalleled economic
boom, there is no reason however for it to be complacent. We
strongly feel the granting of Mr L''s B1 visa will be of benefit to
the American economy in general, and to Company A in particular.
We are writing to you because you are the commercial arm of the
US Government. We believe it is your responsibility to assist Mr
L''s application in a bid to protect the American interests.
Please ring me on my Beijing number (010) 6470 1837 or my mobile
phone number 1350 1156 231 so that we can organize a meeting when Mr
L and myself may have the opportunity to provide you with further
I rang you a few times today and I have left you some messages on
your answering machine. On second thought, I feel I had better put
our request down in writing, hence this message.
