Your Excellency,

It has been noted by the Holy Imperial Government that your nation is on the verge of becoming one of the largest suppliers of lithium to the rest of the wurld. This is primarily due to the fact that your nation has some of the largest and most readily exploitable reserves and sources of it on Eurth. It has also been noted by my government that your nation has already struck a trade deal with at least one of your fellow Aurelian nations and it also seems that word has got out that Tagmatium is equally interested in pursuing such a deal with your nation. This, I can very much confirm, is the case.

Whilst your nation is not the only nation with available sources of lithium on Eurth, the Empire of Great Zaxar is the only one that the Greater Holy Empire is interested with doing business with at this time. Your nation has shown itself to be a nation whose star is rising at the moment, and it would be in the interests of my nation to help this star to continue to rise. Although we would envision this to be a reciprocal relationship between our nations, as such a relationship would be of benefit to both Zaxar and Tagmatium. To this end, I am requesting that your government facilitate talks starting between your nations' lithium mining companies and companies within my nation that are keen to utilise this source, to enable the export of lithium to Tagmatium.

Whilst this trade would be a good next step in the short history of relations between our nations, there is undoubtedly more that we can do for each other. In order to make this more of a wide-ranging trade deal, one that benefits both of our nations beyond just trading in lithium, I would also request that our nations use this opportunity to investigate what tariffs might be reduced against the other products that can be sourced from our nations, what investment opportunities might be available and what further aspects of trade that we could encourage between our nations.

For example, my nation is known for its expertise in farming, and a standing deal exists between Tagmatium and the Dominions of @Metztlitlaca whereby experts from my nation help to improve the farming techniques employed by the farms of Metztlitlcaca. Equally, my nation is a main exporter of farming machinery, fertiliser and other related products. I know that Aurelia has one of the most extensive rail networks in the New Wurld, and there are several locomotive works that would be keen to do business with state- or privately-owned rail companies in your nation.

The people of Tagmatium, the Holy Emperor and I await your reply.

Through faith in God and through trade, we can bring the wurld's nations closer together.

From: the Imperial Zaxar Ministry of Trade and Commerce


Your Excellency,

It is true that we have hopes to become the largest exporter of lithium, both refined and ore, across Aurelia and the Wurld. It is also true that we have struck trade deals with our fellow Aurelian nations and have plans to make more deals in the near future. However, this does not take away from the offer you have put before us as Tagmatium has been a valuable partner to several nations similar to us in the past and we realize the values that a trade deal like this would bring to both of our nations.

We realize that there are several other nations across Eurth with access to large lithium deposits and we are very much appreciative of the commitment of your nation to focus only on ours. The Zaxar economy is indeed expanding rapidly and we have several large mining cooperations who are very keen to compete for your large Aroman markets. The Empire is not one of a self-centered peoples and any deal we may construct will of course be of mutual benefit for our nations.

As the Zaxar market is just now beginning to grow quite rapidly, there is indeed an expanding and under-filled market here for many goods which can be found in Tagmatium. It is because of this that we feel a wide-reaching trade deal would be of great value to our nation. However, we do realize that the Tagmatium market is largely based on the agricultural sector as well as a heavy industrial sector, the former of which could outproduce, and likely, outcompete the large agricultural sector of Zaxar. It is to this end that we would like to express our interest in a broad, industrial based trade deal which would leave in place the grain tariffs which keep our own domestic farmers competitive.

Zaxar is particularly interested in the locomotive and farming equipment sectors of your industry as we look to expand our national infrastructure to match that of our rail-loving neighbors. In return, Zaxar can not only offer our sought after lithium, but exports from our large and developed commercial aquaculture industry as well as our small and budding pharmaceuticals industry.

May the ancestors make this a blessed and fruitful endeavor for both our nations
