Brief Introduction

在进出口贸易中,洽谈交易程序一般按询盘--发盘--还盘--接受--签订合同这五个环节来进行的。

接受是达成交易和订立合同必不可少的环节。接受在法律上叫做承诺。它是指受盘人在发盘有效期内完全同意发盘的全部内容,愿意订立合同的一种表示。

一项有效的接受一般必须具备以下条件:

一、它必须是受盘人对一项实盘的完全同意。

二、必须是发盘所规定的受盘人表示同意才有效。

三、必须是受盘人在发盘有效期内或合理时间内表示同意才有效。

四、接受应由受盘人作出声明或其他行为方式表示,并且这种表示 传达给发盘人后才开始有效。

B: They are to be shipped not later than Sep tem ber 2001.

W: There’s no question about that.

B: And what about the terms of payment?

W: Payment by L/C, to be opened by the buyer 15 to 20 days prior to the date of delivery. That’s what we’ve agreed upon, isn’t it?

B: Yes, quite so.

W: We’d like to add the condition that the letter of credit shall be valid until the 15th day after shipment. You know, it sometimes takes us a week or so to get all the shipping documents ready for the presentation and negotiation. This will give us more leeway.

B: That can be done. Any questions about the in spec tion and claims?

W: None whatsoever. The quality and per for mance of our machines can stand every possible test. We agree to your conditions.

B: Do you also agree to the condition that all disputes, if unsettled, shall be referred to the For eign Trade Arbitration Commission for the Pro mo tion of In ter na tion al Trade?

W: Certainly, but I’m sure there will be no oc ca sion for arbitration.

-- 装船期不能迟于2001年9月。

-- 没问题。

-- 关于付款方式呢?

-- 付款采用信用证,在交货前15到20天期间由买方开出。这些我们 都已同意了,是不是?

-- 对,是这样。

-- 我们希望加上一条,信用证有效期应至货物装船后第十五日截止。 要把所有装船单据都准备好以便提交银行议付,有时需要一个星期 左右。定上这样一条可以让我们的时间充裕一点。

-- 行。关于商检和索赔,有什么问题吗?

-- 完全没有问题。我们的机器经得起任何质量和性能方面的测试。我 们同意你方条款。

-- 你是否也同意这样一条,解决不了的纠纷,就提交国际贸易促进会 的对外贸易仲裁委员会去仲裁?

-- 可以,不过我相信根本不需要仲裁。

B: Well, then, we’ve agreed on all the major points.

W: Yes, Mr. Brown. We’re glad the deal has come off nicely and hope there will be more to come.

B: So long as we keep to the principle of equality and mutual benefit, trade between our two countries will develop further.

W: When can the contract be ready for signature?

B: I’ll have it ready in a couple of days.

W: The earlier the better. I’m leaving next week.

B: How about next Monday afternoon at 5? I’ll have a copy of the contract sent to your hotel in the morning for you to look over.

W: That suits us fine.

-- 那好,主要要点我们都一致同意了。

-- 是的,布朗先生,我们很高兴圆满达成这项交易,希望以后能达成 更多的交易。

-- 只要我们坚持平等互利的原则,我们两国间的贸易一定会有所发展。

-- 合同什么时候能准备好签字?

-- 我会在几天内准备好的。

-- 越早越好,我下星期离开这里。

-- 下星期一下午五点怎么样?我上午会把合同送到你宾馆请你过目。

-- 太好了。

Dialogue 3

A: Mrs. Miller, you are an old friend of ours. In order to encourage fu ture business and as a gesture of friendship, we are pre pared to cut our price by 5%. Will that satisfy you?

B: That’s great. Thank you for making this concession. I accept.

A: Now I repeat: 5,000 transistor sets, spec i fi ca tions as shown in our catalogue at $ 20 each C.I.F. Los Angeles.

B: Good. Now that the price is decided on, we can discuss the packaging.

A: As to packaging, we’ll pack them two dozens to one carton, gross weight about 25 kilos a carton.

B: Carton?

A: Yes, corrugated cardboard boxes.

B: Could you use wooden cases instead?

A: Why use wooden cases?

B: I’m afraid the cardboard boxes are not strong enough for ocean transportation.

-- 米勒女士,你都是我们的老朋友了。为了将来业务进一步发展,也 作为友好的表示,我们准备削价5%,这样做你满意吗?

-- 太好了。谢谢你作出这一让步。我接受了。

-- 现在我重复一下,五千台半导体收音机,规格根据我方目录所示, 每台20美元洛杉矶到岸价。

-- 好,既然价格已定,我们可以讨论一下包装问题。

-- 关于包装问题,我们一只纸板箱内装两打,每箱毛重25公斤。

-- 是纸板箱吗?

-- 是瓦楞形硬纸箱。

-- 你们能否改用木箱?

-- 为什么用木箱?

-- 恐怕纸板箱用于远洋运输不够结实。

A: Cartons are comparatively light, and there fore easy to handle. They’ll not be stowed away with the heavy cargo. Besides, we’ll reinforce the cartons with metal straps.

B: All right. Carton or no carton, the packaging must be waterproof as well as strong enough to stand shock and rough handling.

A: You needn’t worry about that. Cartons are extensively used in our shipments to foreign countries and there have never been complaints from our clients. Now, as regards payment, we have agreed to use dollars, am I right?

B: That’s right. As soon as I get home, I’ll see about the opening of the letter of credit.

A: Please open the letter of credit 15 to 30 days before the date of delivery so that we’ll have enough time to make all the nec es sary arrangements. Another thing, the L/C should be val id until the 15th day after shipment.

B: No problem. That can be done. I understand you’ll ship the goods before the end of May?

-- 纸板箱比较轻,便于搬运。纸箱不会和别的笨重货物堆放在一起 的。此外,我们会用铁条加固纸箱的。

-- 好,不管是不是纸箱,包装必须防水,而且必须坚固,经得起震动 和粗鲁地搬运。

-- 这个你不必担心。我们发往国外的货中广泛使用纸箱,从未听到 过国外客户有什么抱怨。至于付款,我们已同意使用美元,对吗?

-- 对,我一回去就着手办理开立信用证。

-- 请在交货前15天到30天内开立信用证,以便我方有足够的时间作 好必要的安排。另外,信用证应在装船后15天内保持有效。

-- 没问题,可以办到,你们将在5月底前交货吗?

A: Right. We’ll ship the goods according to the agreed time schedule. Last, but not least, the inspection is to be carried out by Hous ton Commodities Inspection Bureau, which is final and binding on both parties.

B: Yes, we agreed to that. We have great confidence in your inspection institution. Through years of dealing with you, we’ve convinced of your commercial integrity.

A: Thank you. You can rest assured that we’ll do ev ery thing

possible to prevent de fec tive commodities from going abroad. However, if there should be any disputes, we wish to have them settled through friendly discussions.

B: Exactly. That’s what we have done in the past.

A: Well, it seems we have covered everything. We’ll have the

con tract ready in a couple of days.

B: Can you speed it up and let me have it today? I’m leaving tomo- rrow. I’ve been here for almost a month now, you see. My corpo- ration is urging me to return. I’ve booked the tick et for to mor row afternoon’s flight at 3: 00.

A: Let me see. If we can’t get the contract ready by then, we’ll send it to you by airmail for your signature.

B: That’s fine too.

-- 对,我们将根据规定时间交货。最后一点,但并不是最不重要 的一点是,商检由休斯顿商品检疫局执行。其检疫结果是最后依 据,对双方都有约束力。

-- 是的,我们同意了这条。我们对你方商检机构很信任。通过多年的 和你们打交道,我们确信你们的商业信誉可靠。

-- 谢谢。你们尽可放心,我们将尽一切可能去防止次品出口;但是万 一有争议的话,我们希望通过友好协商来解决。

-- 正是这样,我们过去就是这么做的。

-- 好吧,看来我们各方面都谈过了。我们将在几天内把合同准备好。

-- 能否加快点,让我今天拿到,行不行?我明天回国,你知道我在这 儿呆了近一个月了。我的公司催我回去,我已经买了明天下午三点 钟的飞机票。

-- 让我想想。如果到时合同还没有准备好,我们将航空寄给你签字。

-- 也好。
