    Can you say: Could we get to know each other first before we talk business?

    Can you say:

    Could we get to know each other first before we talk business?

    VS

    Can we get to know each other first before we talk business?

    Are both okay?

    You could use either, but the first would be more common.

    Please allow me to ask a question.
    What are they going to do next?
    Are they going to exchange business cards and introduce themselves, perhaps?

    For me, it sounds like a conversation, a cup of coffee, or perhaps a drink. Then they will talk business.
