In response to press inquiries, a spokesman of the Education and Manpower Bureau (EMB) said today (4 August) that EMB and the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research were making preparation to launch a campaign later this year to raise the awareness of good standards of English in workplace.
"A steering committee will be set up to advise on the organisation of the campaign. Funding for the campaign will be provided by the Language Fund."
"We will seek maximum support and participation from the business sector."
"As preparation work for the campaign has just started, no further details can be announced at this stage," the spokesman said.
