Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Bonjour à tous. Welcome to the 47th meeting of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology.
We have with us today the Minister of Industry, the Honourable James Moore.
You will see on the orders of the day that pursuant to Standing Order 81(4), we are considering the main estimates for 2015-16, and I'll just say “etc.” for the rest; you have it written out in front of you.
We will begin with the minister's opening remarks, and then colleagues you know that we will do the questions in rotation as usual.
Please, Minister, go ahead.
