Murat Seitnepesov (Managing Director, Integral Petroleum): 03:32
Okay. First goal is to promote and highlight the great the Caspian region to the world, but also to promote and highlight the grit of the big world into the great, the Caspian region. Because the same situation, the scaffolding, if people ask the person in the Caspian region, they don’t know what is going on in United States. Well they know Mr. Trump, started digging Mexico and ask them little like to close this gap. It’s not only about political I told about all kinds of visibility. And the second goal is to improve relations between the people, between the countries of the region, the Caspian region. Because we, what we can see here, I looked up hidden tension. And to improve relations and the comment to the host to our customer, people put discuss to become friends would do business with it, gas build food and then slowly, slowly this ice will be melted. And the third goal is to bring innovations and whatever the best is available in the big world, into the Caspian region. Tried to implement this.

Murat Seitnepesov (Managing Director, Integral Petroleum): 05:22
I’ve seen several problems, which great. The customer region should sort it out as soon as possible. First of all is a lack of education. Then there is a lack of new technologists, lack of financing and investments. Then with have a logistics infrastructure, the region should be also improved because logistics go in first. Then the businesses come in. They come and make relations that without [inaudible] you cannot do anything.
Matt Bird (Show Host, Traders Network Show): 05:35
