From the opening statement of Daniel K. Akaka: "Today's hearing, 'Lost in Translation: A Review of the Federal Government's Efforts to Develop a Foreign Language Strategy,' will examine a critical issue for both our national and economic security: What is the Federal Government's strategy for addressing the shortfall of Americans with foreign language proficiency? The Federal Workforce Subcommittee has been looking at the Federal Government's ability to recruit and retain language-proficient individuals since the year 2000. For the last 6 years, I have tried along with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to encourage the Administration to address the government's foreign language needs."
