    "Just" should start a new sentence. It is short for "Just wait and you will see...

    Do you mean "Just wait for people to come to our country and buy our products and you will see...?"Then, who are the subject of wait...?It "you " is its subject,how can it be connected with the above "We are only selling products"?I am still puzzled. Thank you!

    Yes, "you" is the assumed subject of the sentence. "Just you wait..." There is not really enough there in the context to make sense out of it all. We end up doing thing writer's work.
