This Report aligns the outcomes of the Groups reflections with Commissioner Orbans political agenda, which centres around three objectives:
(i) economic competitiveness, growth, and better jobs;
(ii) lifelong learning, intercultural dialogue, and;
(iii) creation of a space for European political dialogue, and communication with citizens. As becomes clear from this summary, the two broad strands of multilingualism considered by the Group - language learning / multilingual competence, and language mediation (translation and interpreting in their various forms) - cut right across the three objectives, just as they are themselves closely interrelated.
