,----[ Quote ]
| BUSINESS GROUPS: THE MICROSOFT executive who runs the software
| companyâs business outside of the US and Canada is the latest
| high-profile business leader to come out in favour of passing the
| Lisbon Treaty.
| Jean-Philippe Courtois, president of Microsoft International, said
| it was âvery importantâ not just for Ireland but for Europe as a
| whole that the treaty is ratified.
| âWe have a shift of power between China, Brazil, the Indias of the
| world and the US,â said Mr Courtois. âEurope needs to step up both
| economically speaking and politically speaking. That treaty has to
| be clearly embodied and move on with all the citizens in Europe.â
