HONG KONG, 23 May 2000 - Computer Associates International, Inc.

"The Top Ten Best Companies award showcases successful corporations for their outstanding achievements in being a responsible and conscious business of the 21st century," said Gelly N. Borromeo, Asian Enterprise, publisher and editor-in-chief. "The Top Ten Best Companies for Asian Americans serve as role models for not only minority groups, but also the entire American community."
