In a business setting, do you feel that strong written communication skills are eqully as important as verbal?

This is an opinion question,mostly. I'm writing a paper for my business English class. I've always been more of a fiction writer, so I find myself a bit confused on the seemingly plainness of business writing.

Also, I can't seem to find a specific set up for an additional information page. I assumed it's set up would be similar to a "Note" page, but alas, I cannot seem to find anything.

Any information and opinions are helpful. Thank you in advance.

If I am asked this question, I would first state my opinion and give examples from the business world to support it. For example;
I agree that written communication skills are equally as important as verbal for many businesses though the degree of this requirment differs from one business setting to another. Example....

seemingly plainness

I don't think it is okay to write seemingly plainness. I think you should write "seemingly plain nature of..."

Well, this is not about whether or not the writing is plain. Business writing serves a purpose that is altogether different from fiction. Your job is to philosophize a bit to yourself and decide on an answer to this specific question. Is it more important, less important, or of equal importance. For this, you need to determine what is most useful and crucial in the business setting... what purposes does writing serve in business?

As for an additional info page, I don't know what you mean!:-) Can you explain?
