I will call the meeting to order.
I want to thank the witnesses for coming forward. We're into our very aggressive and short period of time with pre-budget consultation. We certainly appreciate your coming in. We have a panel of seven to start in this first half of our meeting.
I will introduce you as I yield you the floor. In the interest of time, we'll give you five minutes, and we hope to keep you to that five minutes as close as possible. I'd ask that the witnesses respect that.
We'll start with our first witness. We have the Association nationale des éditeurs de livres. We have with us Pierre Le François, director general.
The floor is yours, for five minutes.
