Hello people,

Look at this sentence, please:

"Our company is to cancel all operations overseas". Is that correct?

Could I say "Our company is going to cancel all operations overseas", instead?

Thanks

Falcon

'is going' is better; it is implied in the first quote but as usual in business speak grammar and correct English are often ignored in place of speed.

Thanks for helping.

But if I say the first sentence... is it grammaticaly correct or no?
