Thank you, Mr. Chair. I appreciate it. This is good testimony. I'm coming from the industry committee, or the innovation committee, with its recent name change.
It's very pertinent to many of the things we've talked about with regard to manufacturing, innovation, and science. An interesting aspect that you talked about here is the network enterprises. I come from the tool and die mould-making industries, where CEOs and senior management are often running around in Europe and other places, securing the next bidding contract, versus trying to fill out paperwork forms and files.
One of the things they've noticed over the last number of years was the reduction in services, even to get through the changes—even, for example, SR and ED tax credits and other types of research things that are available.
In terms of network enterprises, have there been any models we can look at in the Unites States or Australia or New Zealand that they're doing with their SMEs that could be fast-tracked if there were support for something like that?
I see a lot of value in that, at least in getting some of the low-hanging fruit. That would be a good start for some of the businesses.
