My Dear Good Friend I sincerely apologize if the content of my mail is contrary to your wish,but please treat with absolute secrecy and personal. My name is Mr.Vannarith Chea from south East Asia. I am a government official,in charge of all government contracts awarded from the ministry of works and housing. Please let me make it clear to you that I am a person of high integrity and would never involve in any illicit or dishonest business if there is no reality. I purposely and personally contact you, as I am interested for a creditable fruitful business relationship with you. I hope you would acknowledge our business cooperation with the best of your understanding. I need your collaborative partnership to invest with you in your country also I would like us to have a very intellectual and comprehensive discussion regarding the investment plan and further details. I am pleased to let you know that I have acquired a very extensive portfolio which is impressive and indeed a great asset from the ministry,and it takes special dedication, commitment and perseverance to acquire or to get through such a demanding course of work, I decide to settle down to get on with my private life and investment with your cooperation and we can have a mutual joint agreement on the shares for the investment dividends. This is my personal business cooperation with you and of a very confidential nature and not involving my entire ministry of works and housing, as i am about to retired from the ministry. I have the available fund for the investment which I believe with this amount we can do a lot and my definite reason for investing in a foreign country is considering my position with the ministry, the commitments and the confidentiality of our cooperation, so I would not invest such a larger scale of business and money here in order to protect my reputation.I hope you can understand my position. Having this established in your country we both can maintain equal rights in our business cooperation as shareholders. I have no problem with that in as much as we abide by the obligation. I have the following ideas for this investment; 1. Real Estate Business: Apartment/building, Hotels with modern facilities,and attached with Seafood Companies. 2. Cement Plant/Industry (Manufacturing and supply) 3. Fuel/gas Stations in different cities, regions/locality, Biofuels, etc 4. Energy and lighting Solutions, Mining Corporation 5. Highly skilled services in Oil logging (Upstream and downstream operations, Exploration and discovery) Let me know if you have any experience in the above sectors, another Option is this: I may be interested to invest in your present company as a shareholder, or we may set up a separate Joint Venture company. If you consider my ideas to be viable and profitable in your country, or you have other ideas to recommend, Please advise so we may have a particular focus and proceed with every other formalities for the investment accomplishment. Looking forward to hearing from you for a mutual cooperation. Best regards, Mr.Vannarith Chea.
