Well, thank you. I only have one question, but it has eight parts.

Minister, and officials, thank you for being here. I appreciate that.
I want to pick up a little on where you left off with Ms. Grewal's question.
I wanted to ask you how the department has been informed by the Go Global workshops. During the testimony we've heard that most people got a lot out of them, and some of the companies who were here and who didn't attend wished they had. In terms of the next steps, you talked about having a focused agenda. Are we looking at a canned delivery of these things? It seems that a targeted strategy would be good for some, but maybe for companies that were just thinking about it there could be a canned package. How has some of the feedback from these sessions informed the department on future steps?

Okay. I can't ask the next eight parts?

Thank you, Chair.
Thank you to our witnesses for being here.
Mr. Turi, I'd like to start with you. I want to pick up a bit on the accelerated capital costs that you mentioned.
One of the things we heard in our finance committee prebudget consultations, specific to ACCA, was trying to make sure that Canada was on a level playing field because companies are making investment decisions—here, or in the U.S. or Mexico—based on different tax policies. They were able to do that.
Do you see this 10-year window, which is a pretty significant extension over the two years we've been doing in the past, as having potential? Could it have more business investment here to become exporters, as opposed to in the U.S., Mexico, and importing?

Ms. Pohlmann, on your pie chart where you talk about who's exporting and who's not, and then the other one on if you have traded in the past three years, were these point-in-time types of things, or do you have previous years of this data so you could see trends?

Okay, I appreciate that.
One of the comments you made on the export market development program was to focus only on SMEs by placing limits on the size of the companies that can access program. The other comment we've heard from others before is that we should be targeting companies that have export potential. I'm not sure that those are consistent principles. I'm sure you're all hoping to get to the same objective, but I'm not sure I see the same principle.
If we're going to be targeting, is there a framework for doing this so we achieve all the objectives we're trying to?

I have a last quick question on the trade commissioner service. Some have said it's almost as if we're going from a mile wide and an inch deep to something else. If we spend on that and you make this broader, how do you continue to keep these TCS people effective and keep their training up to speed? It seems to me that it's going to be a challenge.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. Thank you to our witnesses for being here.
I'd like to start with Mr. Addante and Mr. Yu.
How many employees do you have now? What has been the employment growth in your company?

What's happening today while you're here?

With that said, it seems like, if I heard the answer to the question before correctly, you haven't really used the services of EDC and others a lot.
What kinds of things have you done? You talked about foreign exchange. What have you learned from that? What kinds of things are you trying to hedge your transactions, including your U.S. dollar transactions?

You're recommendation for the new investment that we're putting into the trade commissioner service is to make it a little deeper and to make more contacts for businesses.

Thank you.
Mr. Hicks, I'd like to go to you. I was intrigued by a comment you made on something called zone partners. I just want to ask you how that model works. Specifically, as you say, you're building tools and you're manufacturing and building those.
Do you have any challenges when it comes to the export side of this? I'm assuming you export product, but do you also export some of your skills from a standpoint of maintaining those or providing maintenance from a manufacturing standpoint?

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to our witnesses for being here. I appreciate the good discussion we're having today.
Mr. Letenneur, I would like to start with you. Just to make sure I understand, do you source all your salmon from Canadian aquaculture operations?
