Chapter 801 – Child of Wealth
Chief Lu was overjoyed. He did not expect to get 5 million RMB of sponsorship so quickly. Manager Feng was too generous. But how much of this 5 million would be given to the athletes was still not decided. All sponsorships would be consolidated by the General Administration of Sport office before given out.
Chief Lu wanted to say something when Wen Dongjun knocked and entered the room with a cup of tea. After passing the tea to Feng Yu, he walked out with his head bowed. This Xiao Wen does not even greet Manager Feng. If it weren’t for Minister Zhang, he would have transferred Wen Dongjun to an unknown village. University graduate? He does not even know how to serve a cup of tea properly.
Chief Lu wanted to continue, but Feng Yu interrupted him. “What else does our contingent lacks?”
“Our food and equipment are sponsored. Your Bing City Pharmaceutical Cooperation is sponsoring our medical supplies.” Chief Lu thought for a while. Feng Yu was obviously interested in giving more sponsorships, but he does not know what he lacks.
If Chief Lu had known earlier, he would have asked for cash rewards for the medalists. This Manager Feng was so generous and might give more than Mr. Fok.
“Are there any sponsors for transportation?” Feng Yu asked.
“Transportation? We are flying over there and will be staying at the Olympic village nearby. If we are going to some venues further away, the organizers will send us.” Chief Lu replied. Manager Feng wants to sponsor the air tickets? But the air tickets were all included in his department’s budget.
“Oh, ok. I will send 100 Songjiang vehicles Atlanta Olympics Village. When our athletes arrive there, they can use the vehicles. Don’t worry about the drivers. I will settle it.” Feng Yu said.
Songjiang vehicles were selling well in Russia and the former Soviet Union countries. Feng Yu was also thinking of bringing his cars to the US and see how the Americans would react.
The US is a country where its people would prefer their own brands of vehicles. In Feng Yu’s previous life, there were all sorts of brands in the US. Even their domestic brands were not selling as well as imported brands.
The 100 cars that were sent to the US can also be used by Feng Yu’s companies in the US after the Games. Also, the Olympic Games will be telecast all over the world, and this was an excellent opportunity to market the Songjiang brand.
If the Americans were interested, Feng Yu might consider setting up a branch factory in the US.
Chief Lu does not understand the purpose of this sponsorship. You are sending 100 cars to the US for us to use? You might as well rent the vehicles there or give us a sum of money. We can take the taxi ourselves.
But Chief Lu did not say all his thoughts out. This was better than nothing.
Feng Yu thought for a while and asked. “Does your contingent have caps?”
“No. The Games are in Summer. It is sweltering. Who would want to wear caps?”
“What if it rains? We must prepare caps for them. I will get someone to make a batch of caps for them.”
“Ah…… Sorry to trouble you then.”
“It’s not troublesome. What other areas do you all need money?” The caps will be printed with “China” and Wind and Rain Logo.
Chief Lu was stunned. How come this person is so willing to spend money? There are still many areas that lack money.
“Manager Feng, we still lack funds in many areas. For example, the athletes’ training and preparations, etc. All of this needs lots of money.”
Chief Lu looked at Feng Yu eagerly after saying this.
“No problem. I will donate 5 million more for the athletes’ training.”
Feng Yu was thinking about how to fully utilize this Olympic Games to promote his products and brands. Hmmm…… Maybe I can sponsor more items.
“Will our athletes get nervous before their competition?” Feng Yu asked.
“Errr……. It is normal for them to get nervous.” Chief Lu does not understand why Feng Yu was asking this.
“I will donate 500 Aiwa CD players to them. This way, they can listen to their favorite music to relax.”
“Manager Feng, you are so thoughtful. I thank you on behalf of all our athletes.” Chief Lu could tell that Manager Feng was here to spend money.
Before Chief Lu could continue, Feng Yu said. “I will give everyone from the contingent a Songjiang Motorcycle. The medalists will get be rewarded with a Songjiang – Olympic vehicle. This model has 3 versions and can match the gold, silver, and bronze medals.”
Let’s see how the other automobile companies compete with Songjiang. I will organize a grand prize-giving ceremony and make it into a Gala night. It will be excellent marketing.
This was too generous. Chief Lu was smiling but was not satisfied in his heart. You are giving away cars, and the General Administration of Sport will not be able to get a share. At least, a portion of Mr. Fok’s gold and cash prizes to the athletes will be deducted by them as coaching fees and grooming fees. What can we get from these vehicles? We can’t be taking those vehicles away from the athletes. If words spread, the reputation of the General Administration of Sport will be tarnished!
Oh yes, we can deduct more cash from the athletes from their cash prizes.
“Oh, Chief Lu, I heard that the number of participants in the contingent is 490 people. Why is it not 500 people?” Feng Yu prefers whole numbers.
“Ah? We do not have enough funds.” Chief Lu was confused. What sort of question is this? Wait! Could it be that Manager Feng wants to sponsor some people? There is no need for so many people to go. In fact, 480 people were enough, and it includes many leaders. They were using this as an excuse to go on an all-expense-paid holiday. The remaining 10 names were reserves and will be given out as favors.
“I will donate 1 more million as expenses to increase our contingent to 500 people. Oh, I think we should let some young people go along with the contingent to gain experience.” Feng Yu replied.
Young people? What does he mean?
“Chief Lu, it’s a pleasure talking to you. I will get my people to send the items and cheques over.” This sum of money was not given to Chief Lu for free. After the General Administration of Sports had planned how to use the funds, Feng yu will come and discuss how they would market his brands.
“Manager Feng, let me walk you out.” Chief Lu stood up. This person was the god of wealth and cannot be offended. He might still need Feng Yu’s help in the future.
“No need. Dongjun can send me.”
Wen Dongjun? He knew Manager Feng?
When Wen Dongjun walks Feng Yu out, Feng Yu told him that he will receive some good news later.
Wen Dongjun did not think much about this, and after he returned to his office, someone told him to go to Chief Lu’s office.
“Chief, are you looking for me?”
“Xiao Wen, have a sit. You know Manager Feng?” Chief Lu asked. When speaking to Wen Dongjun, he must not be standing up. If not, Chief Lu’s neck will ache from looking up at him.
“I know him. We grew up together.”
“Ok. That’s all. Go back to work. Oh, practice your English when you are free. You will join the Olympic Contingent to gain experience. Young men like you must work harder.”
Wen Dongjun walked out of the room, confused. I will join the contingent? Zhang Han’s father had told him to forget about joining the contingent. Why did Chief Lu say that?
He suddenly remembered what Feng Yu told him earlier. This must be the good news Feng Yu was telling him.
