Hong Wu said with a smile, “Convenient! Of course it’s convenient! As long as the public relations fee is in place, I will make the appointment for you immediately, and when the time comes, it will be in my diamond box at the Tian Xiang House, which is absolutely prestigious!”
Smith was delighted, but when he thought that Hong Wu must charge a fee, he asked tentatively, “Mr. Hong, I wonder what the PR fee is?”
Hong Wu smiled heatedly, looking at Smith like a butcher looking at a lamb to be slaughtered, and said with a smirk, “The PR fee for asking Mr. Wei out for dinner is five million dollars a time!”
Smith was so scared that he almost didn’t sit still.
Five million dollars?! This price is too outrageous, isn’t it?!
The PR firm he was working with had previously quoted Wei Liang only US$50,000.
How could Wei Liang raise the price a hundred times when he arrived in China?
He had spent so much of his savings on his child’s medical treatment, how could he afford to spend as much as US$5 million?
Thinking of this, he cried and said, “Mr. Hong, I’m not going to lie to you, my financial situation is nowhere near as privileged as you think, let alone five million dollars, even fifty thousand dollars, I might even have some difficulties now ……”
Hong Wu shrugged his shoulders and said helplessly, “Then there is no way Mr. Smith, five million is a bite price, there is no room for any concessions, and I’m not going to hide from you, from now on, every day that pa*ses, this price will go up one million, that is to say, if you have not paid by 12 o’clock this evening, then after 12 o’clock, it will be six million dollars. ”
Smith felt a pounding in his head.
He thought to himself, “Wei Liang’s vengeance is too strong, isn’t it? Even if I did do something wrong, there’s no need to just increase the PR fee by a hundred times, right?”
Seeing that he was silent, Hong Wu took out a card of his own and handed it to him, saying indifferently, “Mr Smith can think about it and call me when he’s ready.”
Smith knew that Hong Wu was giving an expulsion order, so it was no good to stay here any longer, so he could only say helplessly, “Mr. Hong, I will discuss this with my family and contact you first when there are results.”
Coming out of Tian Xiang House, Smith had mixed feelings in his heart.
The more he hit a wall in China, the more he felt extreme regret for the way he had treated Wei Liang in the first place.
However, regrets aside, he knew very well that he could never just give up at the moment.
Therefore, the only way was to meet with Wei Liang first through this Hong Wu.
But the cost of this meeting was indeed incredibly high, US$5 million, which was completely out of his reach.
Just when he was at a loss, he suddenly remembered that the Ministry of Health had said hello to him earlier, so he immediately picked up his mobile phone and called the other party back.
As soon as the call came through, the person on the other end couldn’t wait to ask, “Smith, have you seen the head of the drug company?”
Smith sighed, “Not yet, their head said that the meeting needed to go through a middleman, and that middleman, asked for a five million dollar brokerage fee ……”
“Five million?!” The other party, dumbfounded, blurted out, “Are they crazy? Do they really think dollars can fall from the sky?”
Smith said helplessly, “That’s their attitude now, there’s nothing else I can do, and I can’t get this much money out, if you can settle this fee for me, then I’ll meet with the person in charge of them again, if you can’t, then there’s nothing I can do.”
There was a moment of silence on the other end of the line, Smith could hear the sound of gritting teeth, and then he heard the other side say angrily, “D*mn it! Five million for five million! It’s coming out of our Ministry of Health budget!”
