    press ahead

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    Westerwelle warned against such a move, saying that the Balkan country should press ahead with political and economic reforms after elections on October 3.

    press ahead = continue (with a course of action)

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    press ahead = continue (with a course of action) Yes, but I would add doing so with some determination/conviction. (press ahead)

    Thanks for your efforts.
