Misys Provides Guidance to Canada to Sharpen its Competitive Edge

    LONDON, June 26 /CNW/ - Misys (FTSE: MSY.L), the global applications
software and services company, has provided guidance to the Canadian
Government's Competition Review Panel. In its advice to the Canadian
Government Misys said that, "Canada needs to use its bounty of natural
resources, including its share of the Arctic, to transform into a highly
educated, highly motivated and highly sought out, destination for talent and
    Misys worked with former DTI Permanent Secretary Sir Robin Young on its
high level submission.
    Peter McCullagh, Misys Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing
Officer said; "Our advice to the Canadian Government is based on serving
customers in over 120 different countries. Dealing with comparable markets
across the world has given us very clear insight into the necessary conditions
that form the basis of an environment conducive to business and economic
success. Misys is an exemplar of the kind of high skilled, high-value added
industry that should form the bedrock of Canada's economic growth for at least
the next two decades. Canada's economic foundations are generally strong but
there are factors which we have identified which limit Canada's capability to
enhance its global position."
    "Sir Robin Young, who led similar reviews of the UK's competitiveness
during his time as head of the UK Department of Trade and Industry we have
produced a well researched and valuable submission."
    Sir Robin Young, Chairman of Euro RSCG Apex Communications Ltd, said;
"Misys, with its experience in doing business around the globe offers valuable
wealth of knowledge in terms of the ways in which successful economies and
markets operate."
    "This submission constitutes a powerful contribution to the debate about
reforming Canada's economy to meet the competitive challenges of the 21st
Century global economy."
