I'm going to call the meeting to order. This is the last meeting in our study of the trade commissioner service. After this, we have legislation that has passed the House; the Jordan free trade agreement will be taken up on Thursday.
Today we have two blocks. In the first hour, we have two witnesses before us. In the second hour, we'll have one witness. We'll leave some time for an in camera session to give direction on the report in the last 15 minutes.
First of all are the two witnesses before us. We have before us Jacques Bonaventure.
Thank you very much for coming in.
By video conference, we have Brent Howatt.
Can you hear us all right, Brent?
