Need Or Do Need


We need to … OR We do need to …

Which is the correct?

In affirmative present tense statements the do is optional. So both are correct.

Yes, both are correct, but there is still a difference in meaning between them. “Do” in such cases is used to emphasize the meaning of the verb. If you say: “We do need…”, it is close to “We really need…”, whereas just “We need…” is neutral in meaning.
