Obviously, the narrative on Africa has gotten a little less optimistic over the last couple of years with the drop in commodity prices and we’ve seen the impact on some large economies such as South Africa, Nigeria and Angola. But the infrastructure needs are still there across every country.  We are working closely with a lot of the governments and the private sector around bringing more power, rail capability and even some oil and gas equipment. Our outlook is still good.  We’re seeing a little bit of growth year on year and I think it’s just a question of really continuing to invest in what our commitments have been and we’re still committed to Africa in a very strong way.
