International Business Communications


Each letter 
should range from 600-700 words. (5 total)


You are preparing for business negotiations with potential partners from Mexico, China, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).


You understand that these cultures are vastly different. They have different business customs, social protocols, and languages. However, they also have a strong relationship with several of your vendors so they may be viable business partners for your hamburger franchise expansion project.


First, construct a general business letter you would use to introduce your company and propose the possibility of a meeting to discuss your hamburger franchise.


Once this letter is complete, revise the general letter into four separate versions, one to each senior leader noted below (4 letters).

As this is your first outreach effort with each country, pay special attention to and account for the varied cultural nuances, Hofstede’s criteria, and contextual language differences in your writing. 

Each letter should range from 600-700 words.
