There will certainly be some exemptions from government procurement on both the EU side and on our side. The EU has existing exemptions from government procurement that remain in place now, and they're unlikely to change those. As to whether they would be the same as the ones that were negotiated with Korea, I wouldn't want to suggest that will necessarily be the case, because we're both starting from different places. The biggest element that's new to us is of course that we're negotiating government procurement with the provinces' and territories' procurement on the table. So this is going to be a different kind of negotiation from the EU-South Korea negotiation, but without a doubt there will be some exemptions on both sides.
