Unable to open higher level business discussion with my supplier’s contact” “I cannot ensure the quality improvement plan is really in place, although they said YES in all meetings” “We are buying everywhere from China, and delivery cost is difficult to control” “I see from exhibitions, my supplier has better products, but they don’t inform me”
