3. You introduce the proposal, telling the readers
its purpose and contents.
You present the background—the problem,
opportunity, or situation that brings about the
proposed project. Get the reader concerned

Oops! Market Analysis
The MagLev train has met with much success in other developed
countries in Asia and would greatly benefit tourists in Spain.
With 78.9 million tourists traveling to Spain in 2002, earning 32.9
billion USD, this service would be greatly appreciated by foreign
visitors as it estimates to save travel time by seventy-five percent.
Spain is the second largest tourist destination in the world.
The train system installation will be supervised by engineers from
. And So
Josh G. has volunteered to cover all expenses for the team.
The technology will be imported from Japan.
Steel will come from AGOZAL, situated in Neuweid, Germany
