Thank you, Mr. Chair.
This is my first appearance at the Standing Committee on Finance. I hope my questions will be appropriate.
Regarding the proposed amendment, Mr. Lusignan mentioned that we would be granting sovereign loans to developing countries through new programs, on condition that those loans be guaranteed by the governments of these foreign states. Perhaps it was a translation error. If we grant a loan to a state, and if that state has to guarantee that loan, how does that work? Maybe I misunderstood.
