    唔岩!

    establish 創立: should use simple past tense

    establish 建立(關係) : can use present perfect tense

    ~ Our company was established in 1969.

    ~ Our company has established a good relationship with the local community since established in 1969.

    Sorry, some correction:

    Our company has established a good relationship with the local community since it was established in 1969. ("since" as a conjunction)

    or, use "since" as a preposition:

    ~ since 1969

    ~ since being established in 1969

    Fully agree with Godfrey's comment. "maintain" is the correct word to show the continuation of the status, as "establish" functions more like an action verb.

    I was just trying to give examples of two different meaning of "establish".

    2014-11-07 06:33:00 補充:

    Correction:

    For the 2nd meaning of "establish", we can't use the present perfect tense with "since ..." or "for ..." because of its "action verb" nature.

    ~ Our company has established a good relationship with the local community.

    (meaning: we have just started having a good relationship ...)

    To: myself

    咁既問題,都係唔答好過答,答多錯多。

    I am really flattered by the comment. Thanks Godfrey.

    NO.

    "Was established" is a passive voice. you should use past tense or present perfect tense.

    AND

    You need NOT to tell the others the accurate time that your company started but briefly talk about it is okay.

    Here are some samples for your reference

    " Our company founded in October 1969,and mainly .......(talk about what your company's business and value )"

    OR

    " We have established a good relationship with .....since 1969"

    Hope these can help you,

    我會這樣寫:

    Our company has maintained a good relationship with the local community since it was established in 1969

    Our company has not established a good relationship with the local community since it was established in 1969

    2014-11-07 08:18:57 補充:

    Our company has now clearly established a good relationship with the local community.~ 暗示最近的事
