Now we have to make and ship harvesters on time. The company has enough orders to stay busy through September. The products are being shipped to friendly countries, primarily the Commonwealth of Independent States, and to remote countries. There are no problems with export. Growth rate was about 130% in January-May. As for new countries, we shipped the first batch of harvesters to Zimbabwe last year and continued shipments this year.
