That is welcome and interesting to hear and I commend Mr. Makhlouf on that work. Now that the Greens have entered government in Germany, I hope that the pace of change will increase even further.

A banking review was announced this week. Obviously, the Central Bank will play an important part in that. The three issues I wish to ask about are inflation and whether that will be on the agenda; access to credit; and whether Mr. Makhlouf envisages green products forming part of the review and how to achieve change in that regard.
