Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I also want to thank the honourable minister, along with all of the other witnesses, for taking the time to appear before the committee.
You mentioned some interesting stats, Minister: 60% of GDP, and one in every five jobs is related to trade. Obviously it's a very significant portion of our economy.
I know you are responsible for most of the 38 free trade agreements Canada has been able to sign in recent years.
Minister, the Prime Minister of India was recently on a historic visit to Canada. Can you tell us what that trip achieved in our bilateral relationship and how our government is advancing trade with India?

Thank you.
On the margins of Prime Minister Modi's visit, several commercial agreements between Canadian and Indian companies were announced, with a combined value of over $1.6 billion. Can you share with the committee what types of agreements were signed and how they will benefit the Canadian economy?

I want to thank our witnesses for appearing before the committee and helping us with this study.
My question is to all of you. To what extent do you feel that Canadian SMEs know about the full range of trade promotion services that are available to them?

You mentioned the Go Global initiative launched by Minister Fast. Can you just share your experience with the committee regarding the kind of feedback you've gotten from some of the participants as to how well put together that is? Is it really serving the requirements of some of these SME participants? How well would you say it's working?

For most of the participants that are coming to some of these sessions, do you feel they have had some dealings with a government agency such as the trade commissioner service, EDC, BDC, CCC, and so on?

I think there's been roughly, give or take, about 15 sessions so far, if I'm not mistaken. What would you like to see done differently with regard to the Go Global initiative? In particular, are there areas of improvement that you would like to see that may be missing?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I also want to thank our witnesses for being here with us today and helping us with this important study.
My first question is for Mr. McKay. You mentioned in your remarks with regard to the new site that Google launched in terms of being able to help businesses export. I'm just wondering if you can talk a bit about that and help us understand exactly what that is and how you hope to help businesses.

Last Thursday. Can you share with us the initiatives that Google is taking in getting the message out to SMEs and that they are able to take advantage of this?

Perfect. My next question is for Mr. Bergan. If anyone else has comments to make on this question please feel free as well.
You mentioned some of your dealings with the trade commissioners, and possibly with some of the other government agencies such as EDC and BDC. Are you able to share your experience with the committee on how well equipped you feel these organizations are and if they have the necessary tools to help SMEs succeed?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to thank the witnesses for appearing before our committee and helping us with this study. Let me also congratulate all of you for all the success everyone has achieved so far, and for your hard work. You're definitely very deserving.
I'm going to start with Mr. Hall, but I would like all of you to answer this question. Can you tell us if you had any dealings with any of the government agencies, such as the trade commissioner service, EDC, or BDC? Share your experience with us in terms of the help you might have received and the interaction you had. Do you have any suggestions on how it could be improved?
We'll get started with Mr. Hall, please.
