In France, our partnership with the defence procurement agency (DGA) is constantly being strengthened, particularly with the acceleration of the intermediary sized frigates programme, which should be easy to adapt to the needs of our international clients. Finally, in the field of marine renewable energies, we are working on three technologies: tidal turbines, floating wind turbines and thermal ocean energy. Markets of the future where our expertise will find new fields of application. This demonstrates how the Group is engaged in value generating projects. In the short term, we are all focused on sustainably achieving profitable growth by perfectly completing the major construction programmes currently under way, improving our competitivity and moving into Income of new markets. In the longer term, looking towards €5 billion 2025, we are aiming for an income of €5 billion, in 2025 half of which will be generated by international — markets and a further significant proportion by marine renewable energies. This is an ambitious target, in line with the Group’s level of expertise.
