This year’s Sines Continent Magic Machine Industry Conference was an event that all the countries of the continent, even everyone on the continent paid attention to.
According to the list announced, there were fifty seven nations and three hundred and twenty six companies that had been invited by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. Just with this, there were over two thousand people who attended.
The ones that didn’t receive the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s invitation and didn’t appear on the list far surpassed that number.
At the same time, the various newspapers had sent reporters to cover this conference, so everyone’s eyes couldn’t help being gathered on this event.
With this much attention, the day before the conference began, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce announced something that quickly spread and caught everyone’s attention.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s organizing committee had announced that the Yash Duchy had lost the right to attend. At the same time, the Yash Duchy would lose all rights to attend any conference held by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
When this news spread, it immediately created an uproar.
The Sines Continent Magic Machine Industry Conference was already in its fifth year. The Frestech Chamber of Commerce had always wanted to promote the development of the magic machine industry with this conference, so they invited more and more representatives each year, hoping to welcome any country or company that was interested in joining the magic machine industry.
With this goal, there were more and more participants and naturally the scale of the conference also became bigger. It could be said that everything was developing well.
However, this year, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had directly stripped a country of their right to participate, even judging that this country would no longer have the right to participate which was shocking.
Although the Yash Duchy was only a small duchy, it was still a country no matter what.
Before this, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu Yi had firmly expressed that he hoped the countries of the continent could put down their old concepts and actively join the new magic machine industry, using this new industry to improve the lives of their citizens.
So the Frestech Chamber of Commerce always had a positive attitude towards towards any country that wanted to cooperate, not discriminating against any of them.
So why did the Frestech Chamber of Commerce suddenly give this death sentence to the Yash Duchy?
Right, for most people, this statement from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was a death sentence for the Yash Duchy and it wasn’t exaggerated at all.
Since Arch Magus Levin Hasko fell while attacking the Frestech Chamber of Commerce five years ago, all the countries and all the people of the Sines Continent didn’t have any doubts about the influence of the magic machine industry. They started actively investing in developing the magic machine industry.
Even the Candra Empire and the Marlow Empire had put down their attitudes, going to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce on their own initiative to cooperate with them on various projects.
After several years of development, all the countries fully realized the changes brought by the magic machine industry.
Everyone was certain that the magic machine industry was already the most important thing on the continent. If there were countries that weren’t involved, they would fall far behind and would perish.
In these years, all the countries did all they could to build relations with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. They hoped that they could receive technical support from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, developing their own magic machine industries.
But at this time, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had declared that the Yash Duchy had lost the right to participate in this important conference, which was losing the opportunity to develop their magic machine industry.
The fate awaiting this small duchy was only death.
But why was this?
Although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu always had a strong stance, he supported developing the magic machine industry very much, always being willing to provide help to other countries. He had never discriminated against any countries or companies, so why did he target a small duchy like the Yash Duchy?
People’s questions were explained by the «Banta Times» that came out the same day.
The Yash Duchy being kicked out of the conference was big news, so naturally the «Banta Times» would base their headlines on this.
According to the information from the «Banta Times», the Yash Duchy had been treated like this by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce because they had secretly sent people to kidnap two staff members from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, with one of them being a researcher. They wanted that person to do research work for them, as well as giving up the magic machine related materials that they had.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu flew into a rage at this and immediately deemed the Yash Duchy the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s enemy. Not only did the Yash Duchy lose their right to participate in the conference, they were cut off from cooperating with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
Xu Yi even said that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would have the right to investigate the Yash Duchy over this matter.
This meant that it was possible the Frestech Chamber of Commerce might take military actions against the Yash Duchy…..
At the end of this report, the «Banta Times» had indicated that the Yash Duchy could only blame themselves. The reactions of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce could be understood. No one should think about moving against their staff or stealing their technology, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would definitely retaliate to this.
After reading this article, everyone understood the reason behind this matter.
Most people had the same response to what the Yash Duchy did.
The Yash Duchy was too stupid!
They were only a small duchy and they dared to kidnap staff from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. Didn’t they know that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu always acted wildly?
When the Mana Magic Kingdom sent two Arch Magi to attack the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base, although the main base had suffered great losses, Arch Magus Levin Hasko had also fallen.
Then the Frestech Chamber of Commerce implemented a strong counter attack on the Mana Magic Kingdom, using only three months to rout all their armies. The Mana Magic Kingdom went from the third strongest country to a very normal country.
The Mana Magic Kingdom’s Glorious Regiment, which was their pride, couldn't take a single hit from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. The only chance that they had of defeating the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards were the four Arch Magi, but they chose not to fight after the matter of Levin Hasko falling.
In the end, the Mana Magic Kingdom was helpless when facing the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards, having no choice but to surrender and engage in peace negotiations.
Although the Mana Magic Kingdom had developed to one of the countries with the most developed magic machine industry because of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s investments and having large amounts of magicians and mineral resources, they were still far lacking compared to when they were the third strongest country under the two empires.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce was willing to attack the Mana Magic Empire five years ago, so there was no need to mention a small duchy like the Yash Duchy.
To everyone, as long as the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was willing to send out their guards, there wouldn’t be any surprise if they easily destroyed the Yash Duchy.
So after seeing this article, everyone had already given the Yash Duchy the death sentence in their heart.
Of course, some people weren’t willing to accept this result.
The ones most unwilling to accept this was the leader of the Yash Duchy’s representative to this conference, who was also Duke Yash’s younger brother, Count Birmingham.
“CEO Kennard, please help me with this. Can you let me see chairman Xu? I will explain to him that this is all a misunderstanding! It really is all a misunderstanding!” Count Brimingham looked at Kennard with an anxious look, with his voice almost going hoarse pleading with him.
He had made careful preparations for the conference tomorrow as the leader of the Yash Duchy’s delegation, planning to seize this chance to meet some of the other important people who came to this conference. The most important thing was to build a better relationship with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, building a solid foundation for the Yash Duchy’s future development.
He never thought that he would receive an official notice from the conference’s hosting committee, telling him that he had lost the right to participate in the conference!
Then after he learned the whole story from the «Banta Times», the first thing he did was look for Xu Yi to explain.
But Xu Yi didn’t want to see him, so he could only beg Kennard.
“Misunderstanding?” Kennard gave a soft snort and raised a report in his hand, “I just received a detailed report of this matter and it clearly states how two employees of our company were captured by your duchy. Now you’re telling me that it’s a misunderstanding? Do you take me for a child?”
“No, no, no, no, I definitely wouldn’t dare to offend you.” Count Birmingham quickly waved his hand, “But this really is a misunderstanding! Sir Kennard, think about it, our Yash Duchy is only a small duchy, how could we be bold enough to kidnap staff from your Frestech Chamber of Commerce? Moreover, we even sent a representative to this conference, which clearly shows that we want to cooperate with your Frestech Chamber of Commerce, so how could we use these plots? This doesn’t add up, don’t you think?”
“One appearance on the surface and a different appearance beneath, this isn’t a strange thing.” Kennard coldly said.
“No! Definitely not!” Count Brimingham raised his hand and loudly said, “Sir Kennard, on the gods, I swear on my reputation that this isn’t related to my big brother at all! I’m certain that this is the private action of some scheming villain in our duchy! My big brother and I were completely unaware of this!”
“Is that so?” Kennard looked over him before shaking his head, “But how is this related to me? I only know that our company’s staff were kidnapped by people of your duchy and you even threatened their lives. Sir chairman is very angry, so you must pay the price.”
Hearing Kennard’s harsh words, Count Birmingham was not only not worried or depressed, rather he was stunned. His eyes opened wide as he looked at Kennard.
“Sir Kennard, your……No, chairman Xu, his meaning is……”
Kennard waved his hand, “Sir chairman’s meaning is very clear. Our company holds the rights to retaliate against your Yash Duchy and as for how we will retaliate…..that will of course depend on what your Yash Duchy does……”
Seeing the look of deep meaning on Kennard’s face, Count Birmingham thought for a bit before taking a deep breath to calm the expression on his face. He gave Kennard a bow and carefully asked, “Then…..Can I explain this misunderstanding to chairman Xu personally?”
“Sir chairman is very busy.” Kennard casually replied.
Cunt Birmingham thought for a bit before giving a strong nod.
“Alright, sir Kennard, please tell chairman Xu that I will go back to discuss this with the duke. We will definitely give chairman Xu an answer that he will be satisfied with!”
Kennard nodded before watching as Count Birmingham turned to leave.
