    To describe the importance of this reform, IMF managing director

    Hi,

    Question:
    Any difference between sentence 1 and 2?

    Sentence1:
    To describe the importance of this reform, IMF managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has not minced words.

    Sentence2:
    IMF managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has not minced words to describe the importance of this reform,


    My opinion:
    For S1, the writer wants us to focus on ‘describe the importance'.
    For s2, the writer wants us to focus on ‘the IMF managing director'.

    Agree?


    Thanks

    The first sentence doesn't make sense to me. It would if "in describing" were used instead of "to describe."
