Question: Should the U.S. be managing Eastern markets?
Jean-Pierre Rosso: A rise in the eastern market. Well, let me tell you that all the global companies are aggressively pursuing those markets. So there is nothing that needs to be done. Business is taking care of this, all those, those companies are all over the map and addressing the opportunities there, around in those need else any thing else that needs to be done.

The good thing about China is that they are educating people, they work hard, and they are smart and they are going to contribute to the world. This is not necessarily exactly the case, of all emerging markets but China is the shining example of a country moving forward and if you are smart, will this will be to our advantage as well.
