Conversation about business
Happy: Good morning, how are you?
Timsy: I am doing well. how about you? Hope your office is going great.
Happy: Yeah, the office is going really well. Nowadays I am quite tied up with one of my key projects with Japan.
Timsy: What is your project all about? What does your company deal in?
Happy: My company has been exporting fabrics to China for few years and now we are beginning to export fabrics to Japan as one of my counterparts is now settled there and setting up this export business would prove lucrative for our company.
Timsy: What are the primary areas you are working upon to get this export business started? From where are you sourcing fabrics in India?
Happy: I had recently been to Surat in Gujarat as one of my friends has a very big Textile mill there and they have a very fine quality of the cotton fabric. We would first start with the export of cotton fabric and then we would move onto silk and nylon.
Timsy: I know there is a huge market of Indian textiles across the world. But I guess these big mills are directly approaching the importers abroad, so why are they getting you as the middlemen?
Happy: You are right, these big mills are already into export businesses, but this friend of mine doesn’t deal in export business and is very busy in dealing with his suppliers in India. On the contrary, he needs someone to help him. He knows that I am already exporting fabrics to China through many suppliers across India. Therefore he would want me to acquire fabric through his company and start the business in Japan and in China as well. Furthermore, my partner is now in Japan and he is already in talking terms with two companies who are interested in seeking fabrics from India. I hope things are going on the right track.
Timsy: That sounds really exciting. All the best for your new work, I hope that your endeavors pay back soon.
Happy: What about your Fashion designing work?
Timsy: It’s going good, now I have started doing Freelancing. I think you can consider my designs as well for your export business.
Happy: That’s a good idea, but let me first start with the raw fabrics then we can move onto the finished products. Let’s talk over about it some day.
Timsy: If you want, I can share my designs with you?
Happy: Give me a month’s time. After I send one export lot to Japan, we can meet and talk over. And yes I will be needing your designs as well to start and will share with my counterparts in China and Japan.
Timsy: Thanks, I would share them in some time. It was nice talking to you and knowing your business as well.
Happy: Thanks, I am also pleased to meet you. Look forward to meeting you soon.
