    Default "in" or "and" or what else?

    Could someone please be kind enough to tell me which choice should be filled into the blank of the last paragraph, "in" or "and" or what else?

    Thanks in advance.

    US trade deficit declined unexpectedly for the second consecutive time in March, which according to PNC Financial Services Group chief economist Stuart Huffman, is due in part to a lot of nations doing well_______ purchasing stuff made in the USA.

    "and". The speaker pronounces it as "und", with weak vibration on final -d.
