Dear Richard

Business Development Support

Further to our latest exchange I am pleased to convey the following remarks:

"A feature of our collaboration throughout 1999/2000 has been the high quality service that your company has consistently provided. Intelligence, contacts and access are three vital commodities - essential requirements for business success. Progress has never failed to impress, I commend any company seeking entry to UAE markets to look first at Progress - Aldwalia".


With best wishes


David Brocklebank
