Abstract
International business correspondence, which has been frequently used in international business, is an effective communication tool for contacting customers. Being an effective communication tool, politeness has been employed in business correspondence for enhancing communication and understanding to reach the target of successful business transaction. The six maxims in Leech’s theory of politeness are discussed based on the level of vocabulary, sentence and passage structure as well as the characters of business correspondence in the dissertation.
