We are writing to you at the suggestion of our Commercial Counselor's Office of the Embassy in your country. We take the liberty of introducing ourselves as exporters of silk piece goods, which we have been exporting to Europe and Japan.
We are specialized in the above business and recall that many years ago, considerable business was done with your country on such items. Now that the diplomatic relation between our two countries has been established, we are desirous of establishing direct business relations with your corporation, knowing that you are the buyer of silk piece goods.
We shall be grateful if you let us know whether you are interested in the above items.
國際貿易中，建立業務一般是從自我介紹開始的。在初次接觸貿易伙伴時，首先應先告知獲得對方信息的方式。這時可以多用“owe to”，譯為“應該把……歸功于”來說明緣由。例如：We owe your name and address to the Commercial Counselor's Office of the Swiss.(得知貴公司名稱和地址要感謝瑞士大使館商務參贊處。）
