This is Mr. President here in our Hangzhou, China location. Once again, I want to reiterate the Logistics Team is doing an outstanding job. Thank you for leading the transportation bid process. It is interesting to see how Convoy Trucking won the bid and has invested in additional equipment. Business here in China has evolved. Customers are delighted with our company and have requested supply for plastic bottles from our Albany, GA location. The company has decided to go global with the plastic bottles. The challenge is the plastic bottle supply chain is different than the existing products supplied by our company in China. Once again, I am in need for the Logistics Team to manage the aspect of this product expansion to China. I will be traveling to other regions of the world the next few days and I am looking forward to reading the report and presenting a plan to the Board of Directors by the end of the week. Regards, Mr. President.
