(Japanese) Well, I’ve been able to manage here for nearly 20 years, and thanks to Centro Nikkei, I now have a pretty stable lifestyle as well. I’m working in a very comfortable environment, too, so I do wish to continue on here [in Argentina]. Some things are unstable so it’s difficult to predict what the future will bring us, but this is still a young country, and depending on how hard we work, there’s so much room for growth, and there’s probably more potential for growth here than in Japan. That’s the way I would look at it. I think as long as I have a strong will and perseverance, even if the situation changes, I’ll be able to adapt.
