In terms of the numbers, just to give you a quick snap shot of the business we have today, overall for Asia, you see we have operating revenue of USD 9 billion. But more importantly, nearly $900 million of operating earnings. In Japan, we're the #2 foreign life insurer, and #2 in accident and health products. We're the #1 foreign life insurer in Korea. And we continue to our presence in China, which again, is a key emerging market for us. We just called out the 2 most important markets for us in the region, that being Japan and Korea, both that you would appreciate are mature markets and we manage them accordingly and appropriately.So Japan is the second-largest market for the MetLife [indiscernible] in the United States. And we've got strong growth in some high-margin products, despite the challenging environment, and we look at Japan very much as a cornerstone or launch pad for us for the rest of our Asia strategy. And Bill is obviously going to talk more about that very shortly.
