Jamie:If our company is going to grow, we need to find emerging markets.
It makes sense to get a foothold in a few countries that may have developed markets within the next 20 years.
Nina:But there's no guarantee that rapid growth in a country's economy now will be sustainable years from now.
I think it's too much of a gamble myself.
Jamie:There are certainly no guarantees, but by the time it all shakes out and it's clear which markets are the most promising,we will have missed the boat.
Nina:So what are you suggesting?
Should we pick one or two markets to invest in,or hedge our bets and invest in several?
Jamie:I think we should identify the countries that have shown strong economic growth in the past 10 years and focus on those.
Nina:I still think it may be too risky, but I'm willing consider the idea.
Work up a proposal and I'll look at it.
Jamie:You will? This is great.
杰米:你觉得这样可以? 这真是个很棒的点子 。
I didn't think you'd be so receptive.
Nina:I'm not making any promises, but I'll keep an open mind.
Just make it short and sweet.
Jamie:Short and sweet is my middle name!
