(Spanish) Um, obviously, Japan is a very technological country. It is very advanced scientifically, so everybody who comes here to study should exploit that opportunity as much as possible. And they should see it from our point of view, the Latino point of view, which would be a point of view where not only commerce but also human beings are the driving force behind technological innovation. I feel that, if we apply technology for the benefit of human beings this world can get on the right track. But, if we apply technology only for commercial purposes, we are once again on the wrong road.
