English in favour among AEX firms

Only one-third of the 24 companies in the main AEX share index in Amsterdam still publish their annual reports in Dutch, according to a survey by the shareholders lobby group VEB .

Four years ago the figure was 83%. Press releases are also now mainly in English, with just nine of the blue-chip index firms publishing them in Dutch.
