Effectively, yes, there is. The target sum that you’re looking for is about 200,000 Hong Kong dollars a year. However, this sum is not in of itself, definitive. We’ve seen approvals down at the HKD186,000 level. And this amount is NOT the value of the cash salary to be paid. No, the HKD200,000 can amount to the total value of the employment each year.
