    relation,relationship or partnership?

    i am confused about the use of the 3 words. suppose our company hopes to do business with another one, then can i say "we hope to develop a business partnership with you."? or should i say "we hope to develop business relation with you." or " we hope to develop a business reationship with you."?
    thanks!

    The term, business relation, wouldn't work, given the way that you have explained it.
    thank you for the explaination. so to establish a relationship is ok and to establish a business relation is not acceptable.is that so?
