Hi everyone,

1. Proceeding with the next issue, the chief reason might be.....................
Wrong. The second part of the sentence is unrelated to the first.
2. Proceeding with the next issue, I would like to give the chief reason.........
Correct.

Thanks in advance!

A string of periods of indefinite length is not a punctuation mark. It seems that you're trying to write an ellipsis (...).
An ellipsis has three dots within a sentence, and four when it includes a closing period - never more and never less.
