I know -- for us through it's found the demand in China. -- most important thing is that. We need to apparently infrastructure. Like current gas station pools of home is not because we do need to we -- telling -- infrastructure. China nationwide. I think it's a very important on him. -- fund the penetration. Completely turned. And I -- just trying to -- the standardized and obstructionist that. The but thing that's the other countries. That's on the fixed time. I do on the phone that the Italian government than Hillary get the these are these securities and how well. Well pulls that thing out this on the ninth you're telling us he's been playing China. So in your future my hopes up I'm tired of structured system. Rupees for them. Now despite the rapid infrastructure right now -- easy -- has -- promising market. Here because alliance China is -- no doubt the biggest market in the long. I'm we'll sort China other big potential apple rolls. But -- if you adjusting gruesome mountain peak -- with on national handing it to create a -- over. Practice -- to air pollution. Analysts -- -- security issues. I know look -- China to grow Kuo calls his country and across country in the future. It is in the had a couple -- through. To reduce. Here you cannot be -- -- -- EP. Can be ultimate solution. Both those -- replica versions. -- -- -- -- -- Yeah so are we have already these are agreement that was who -- that -- government. That we have when this -- the so called pilot program.

And and -- artillery and postal customers target the better it vehicles quote fit -- the Jackson did it cost that much much you'll. I people -- -- cost of the vehicles. He'd be. You have a strong point. So are acute vocal of America -- I think -- -- future deeply into the very stressful that it won't affect us. Noted that carmakers like Nissan produced mass market in China. Which you benefit from those Chinese Government subsidies. Yeah I think so so but of course you we have helping push -- to make -- decision but.
