Multi-lingualism- burden or blessing?

Luxembourg is privileged in that it is considered one of the most multi-cultural countries in the world. But, with multi-culturalism comes multi-lingualism, which provides both benefits and challenges to the business community.

Luxembourg is privileged in that it is considered one of the most multi-cultural countries in the world. But, with multi-culturalism comes multi-lingualism, which provides both benefits and challenges to the business community.

The American Chamber of Commerce to Luxembourg will hold a special symposium to explore these issues and how they impact the business community and its development.

The discussion will be based on an online survey carried out in May 2011 among business leaders of Luxembourg. The survey’s aim was to measure the impact of multilingualism on the competitiveness of enterprises in Luxembourg.

The program of the symposium will follow in September 2011.

Podium speakers include:

- Ms. Petra Buderus (Head of HR of KPMG);

- Ms. Hjoerdis Stahl (Executive Vice-President of Luxair Cargo)

- Ms. Carole Tompers (Secretary General at Luxembourg for Business)

- Mr. Rolf Tarrach (Rector of the University of Luxembourg)

- Mr. Daniel Tesch (Director Automobile Club of Luxemboug)

Partners of the symposium include Luxembourg for Business; Berlitz Luxembourg; Quest Market Research; Luxemburgish Chamber of Commerce. AMCHAM Luxembourg is a supporter of this event. 

The event takes place on September 27, from 6.30pm, at the Luxembourg Chambre de Commerce, 7 rue Alcide de Gasperi, L-1432 Luxembourg. Entry is free to members and non-members alike.
