What is the writing way of export-import correspondence by tabassum17


									               Export-Import Correspondence and Co-operation

George Bernard Shaw, the famous British dramatist of 20th century, had
once remarked: “The universal regard for money is the one hopeful fact
in our civilization”. It is of course, true that money is a very important
aspect of our life. In the modern times, due to the quick modes of
communication and transportation the world is becoming shorter and
people of different places are coming closer. As a result the foreign trade
is becoming the most important of all trades. It is, therefore, necessary to
have sufficient knowledge of correspondence dealing with foreign trade,
foreign exchange regulations and foreign banking.

Because of the involvement of a second country in this case, correspondence has more
facets and intricacies to it than the internal trade correspondence.
Different kinds of letter and performs are used for handling this
correspondence. The main features of this correspondence are clarity,
courtesy and completeness. This correspondence must be assigned to a
person who is fully capable of conveying the business policies of the firm
within the framework of foreign exchange rules and regulations. His
understanding of the clients on the other side, his own thinking, and
interest of the foreign trade must synchronize.
