Thank you, Chairman. And thank you to the host country of Brazil for clarifying some of the things that have been put in place to facilitate the visas.

If we can see movement on the letter in the near future, I think it will facilitate, particularly for certain developing country participants from the business community, I understand they have had problems. And I can say myself, it’s a challenge. So we’ll be in touch on a case-by-case basis if we have problems.

We appreciate the invitation letter efforts. Three points I wanted to make.

One was that we will welcome further information about Webcast and remote participation opportunities. This was maximized by some of our members in Athens and it was very much appreciated.

Number two, further information about the TV studio. This is of interest to members of the business community, and I’m sure other stakeholders. And that  would be of interest to get more information.

And then there was also a — the idea of a looping opportunity for people to make recorded statements. More information about that in the near future would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
