"As to your request for X to release the category of XX services, we would be willing to do so only if those services are not entrusted to one of our competitors – that is, a company involved in the manufacture of XXX. We would therefore ask you to submit the names of potential providers of the services in question for our approval."
Does "therefore" make sense above? I'm not sure that it does. Maybe I should write something like, "With a view to moving forward, we would ask you to...."
Thank you for your input!
"Therefore" sounds fine to me.
