Oil and gas is 11 example this is for water filtration system and overseas engineering project so this is an excellent example of of -- US manufacturing ranked high tech.
High value US manufactured goods that are being manufactured here in the states.
But they're needed for an engineering project overseas so this is a prime example of that of of making -- -- were not a revolt.
The setup this is a prime example of US engineering at edit and its past.
To mark a lot of second hand equipment stuff that is perhaps outlived its usefulness here but it's still very valuable and -- -- the development economy very important.
-- extremely important it gives everybody in those countries it gives -- headstart right gets him off the ground.
And you know the lasts.
-- the last 89 years is just exploded with.
You have these emerging countries you know we couldn't get equipment out the door fast and going and Indians that there is expanding market for these pieces of equipment as they industrial -- industrialized.
Those industrialized nation.
Walking over here gentlemen -- she got behind this year you've got guys building pallets.
I -- Pieces of equipment for electrical.
-- power trucks.

And it in you know -- the southeast Asian nations got him where do we stand right.
Emerging US manufacturing it is the fact that there's -- shoring.
That that term that that's become popular in the last year or so you've got a lot of US manufacturing companies are bringing manufacturing plants.
Back to the states back to Canada back to Mexico.
And it's it's that accounts -- that's that's -- to favor now because of increased the district's crossed that it takes to move something right from China back in the states.
It's also an issue of fond of of quality.
-- quite frankly.
We find an American their manufacturers find that the quality.
Look at his record that's behind us it's difficult to find that or in some of the other countries that are producing -- -- Are going up in China as well I don't wanna get away before we see the final process on this now.

Well it's it's waiting for some some good solid signs regarding an organization like ours were looking for capital goods to increase.
As for as the exports are concerned.
And we know that the oil and gas industry is is very hot right now we know that take for instance we've talked with a lot of organizations that are.
Having a export projects and to -- in countries like can't.
We've got oil shale and engineering projects.
That are going and that would that we would consider that to be an export project so it's cancers are -- absolutely absolutely so those are the types of of projects and organizations and manufacturing companies that we ought to be involved -- gentlemen appreciate the time very much also fascinating to see this.
The way this works now how -- get -- for export overseas -- we put a face perhaps on the US trade deficit numbers.
Here -- conference room.
