помогите, пожалуйста, это из market leader pre-int exit test 2012. на их сайте этот тест есть, но ответов нет(
может у кого есть ответы к нему?)
I saw Roald yesterday. He said that sales in Scandinavia were very good. However, he also said we (13)_____needed to be very careful about delays in shipment. No one wants to order a new car and have it arrive six months later. So I (14)________will meet the production manager next week to make sure we can avoid any problems.
проблема с 14-м - подойдет ли здесь future simple? или Present Continuous?

I will meet with... OR I am meeting with....

Both OK. Don't omit the "with".

to come together with someone intentionally:
The president met the UK prime minister in London yesterday.

I don't think we need this 'with' in this phrase.

maybe it's a difference between AmE and BrE usage.
On second thought, no. It may be the difference between the meeting of people of equal position and not.

The "intentionally" part of the dictionary definition is not correct. To meet someone is the unmarked version, it may be intentional or it may not (I met an old friend in London yesterday). OTOH To meet with someone is always an intentional meeting (I met with an old friend in London yesterday).

The context in Post #1 is an intentional meeting. You don't need "with" but it clarifies the intention.

You can think of the noun:
I have a meeting with the head of production next week.
If this makes sense in the context, then you can use the verb phrase "meet with".
