Subject: RE: 2004 Review and 2005 Plan
Thank you for your good explanation and comments. The cost budget is not yet finalised, and we are waiting for instructions for 2005 salaries from corporate level. Today I cannot guarantee anything, as the company's financial state is very bad. But, I do agree you have done an excellent work this year, and have taken over and managed well new responsibilities. Personally I think you should also get the merit for it.
I will come to Shanghai in the beginning of this year, once I have the budget confirmations and the CS targets for 2005 are set. I am keeping in my mind your mail, and we can discuss further when we meet.
Thank you for the valuable input!
