I will not say that I hold the golden recipe for success in all markets, but I will admit that we are going to use all the experience that has led to our success in Russia, to expand the business in Turkey. There is a lot of knowledge and know-how to be shared among the personnel in Denmark, Russia and Turkey. We are truly an international player."
