Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to this House of Commons parliamentary committee.
To begin, let me say that our political party agrees with the general principle of creating and updating agreements with our trading partners. Clearly, we are not talking about a blank cheque. We have to do our homework, verify things, and that is what we will do today.
Let us begin with Taiwan. After that, we can talk about Israel.
I would like to know if Japan and China, two important partners and economic players in Asia, are affected by the agreement that you are proposing today in Bill S-4.
Have those impacts been measured and, if so, what is your assessment of them?
