A press release from the Commission flags up a conference being held here in Brussels today.
To be fair the title of the conference rather gives the game away,
"Languages mean business"
Nontheless one would hope that the organisers would have the decency not to put out this,
"English alone is not enough as a catalyst for business. This is one of the main conclusions of a major conference "Languages mean business", that is going on in Brussels on 21 September".
Given that the conference isn't yet over it is odd for the conclusions to be trailed in this way.
