We hope to enter into trade agreements with Singapore, China and India. And the advantage with China is that the market is large while India is ranked lower than us. However, they are growing at a pace and when we enter into agreements, we gain many advantages and this is because of the large scale of the market. We will also be able to enter in to Trans-Pacific partnerships. We also hope to enter into agreements with Europe, America and African nations
