HIH GROUP: APRA Further Disqualifies Former Directors
-----------------------------------------------------
The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has announced the
disqualification of Mr. Rodney Aistrope and Mr. Antony Boulden
from being or acting as a Director or senior manager of a
general insurer or authorized non-operating holding company, or
senior manager or agent of a foreign general insurer.

Mr. Aistrope was Managing Director of HIH (Liability) Pty Ltd in
2000. APRA found that he failed in his duty to act honestly by
complying with instructions from his superiors at HIH to
manipulate financial data with the effect that misleading
September 2000 quarter management accounts were presented to the
HIH Liability and HIH Group Boards. Mr. Aistrope's current
employment status is unknown.

Mr. Boulden was employed by FAI Limited (FAI) in its general
insurance division. APRA found that Mr. Boulden caused
misleading and incomplete data for FAI to be provided to the
company's external actuaries during the period from mid-1997 to
early 1998. This would have contributed to the under-estimation
of claims liabilities by the actuaries and ultimately under-
reserving by FAI, and deceived FAI's external auditors who were
reliant upon the actuaries' estimates. It is understood that Mr.
Boulden is currently not employed in the general insurance
industry.

APRA notes that Mr. William Howard, a former senior executive of
the collapsed HIH Insurance Limited (HIH), was convicted on two
counts of criminal misconduct under Section 184 (2) of the
Corporations Act on 23 December 2003 and was therefore
automatically disqualified from that time from being a director
or senior manager of a general insurer under the Insurance Act
1973.

In addition, APRA notes that Mr. Rodney Adler and Mr. Ray
Williams, former directors of HIH, have been disqualified from
managing any corporation, including a general insurance company.
Those disqualifications were made on 30 May 2002 by the NSW
Supreme Court under sections 206C and 206E of the Corporations
Act. Mr. Adler and Mr. Williams were disqualified for 20 years
and 10 years, respectively.

The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) is the
prudential regulator of the financial services industry. It
oversees banks, credit unions, building societies, general
insurance and reinsurance companies, life insurance, friendly
societies, and most members of the superannuation industry. APRA
is funded largely by the industries that it supervises. It was
established on 1 July 1998.APRA currently supervises
institutions holding approximately $1.8 trillion in assets for
20 million Australian depositors, policyholders and
superannuation fund members.

MAYNE GROUP: U.S. FDA Approves New Drug Application
---------------------------------------------------
Mayne Group Limited (MAY) advised the Australian Stock Exchange
on Friday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
granted final approval for the company's abbreviated New Drug
Application for the generic, injectable anti-cancer drug
Carboplatin.

With this approval, Mayne has started selling Carboplatin in the
US.  This timing is consistent with previous guidance to market.
Mayne's Carboplatin injection presentations are generic
equivalents to Bristol Myers Squibb's Paraplatin, which
generated sales in 2003 of approximately US$780 million
according to IMS data.

Mayne's Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr.
Stuart James said that Carboplatin is an important addition to
the US business' cancer focused drug portfolio, which already
includes Paclitaxel and Pamidronate.

"We are continuing to invest significantly in developing our new
product pipeline for the US market and Carboplatin will be an
important product to have when we sell our broadening portfolio
generic, injectable drugs to our customers," Mr. James said.

Carboplatin is used for the initial treatment of advanced
ovarian cancer in combination with other chemotherapy agents.

Mayne Group Limited is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange
and has businesses in pharmaceuticals (the manufacture of
injectable and oral pharmaceuticals for distribution to more
than 50 countries), diagnostic services (pathology, diagnostic
imaging and medical centres), pharmacy, and health-related
consumer products.

MITSUBISHI AUSTRALIA: Responses to ABC 7:30 Report
--------------------------------------------------
In response to the airing of the 7:30 Report by the ABC last
night, Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd (MMAL) strongly
disapproves the sensational way in which the ABC portrayed not
only Mitsubishi Motors operations in Japan, but also the current
viability of the Australian operations.

The story had nothing new that Mitsubishi Motors had not already
disclosed to the public or consumers with respect to the global
recall of vehicles announced in July 2004 or the charges
relating to former executives of Mitsubishi Trucks.

'I am concerned the ABC report will reflect badly on our
Australian operations,' said MMAL President and CEO, Mr Tom
Phillips.

'While we have undergone our fair share of challenges this year,
our parent company confirmed its commitment to continuing
manufacturing operations here in Australia in May and since then
we have brought out a wide range of new vehicles, including
Colt, Lancer Evolution VIII, Grandis and Outlander that feature
world-leading technology and represent the future face of our
brand.

Although we still have work ahead of us, we are going into high
gear for the launch of our all-new vehicle that replaces Magna
for launch next year. We are investing $600 million in new plant
equipment and technology in preparation for this car.'

Mitsubishi Fuso was the truck and bus division of Mitsubishi
Motors before it was spun off into an independent company in
January 2003.

Furthermore, only one voluntarily recall was made in Australia
as part of the global recall by MMC, 288 WA Starwagons built
before September 1994 was the only vehicle affected.

In May this year MMC confirmed its commitment to its operations
in Australia. Mitsubishi Motors is doing all it can to regain
consumer trust in Japan. Corporate compliance, customer service
and safety are priorities for the Company.

MMAL is disappointed the ABC story focused entirely on the
problems and challenges facing the organisation and did nothing
to mention the ongoing efforts by not only our parent company in
Japan but also by the Australian operations to ensure a
successful turnaround of the business.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Hikes Fuel Surcharge
------------------------------------
Qantas Airways Limited said Friday that it would increase its
fuel surcharge because of the continued escalation in the price
of crude oil.

The surcharge will increase by AU$2, from AU$10 to AU$12 per
sector, for domestic travel and by AU$7, from AU$22 to AU$29 per
sector, for international travel.

The Chief Financial Officer of Qantas Airways, Peter Gregg, said
the airline had made the decision reluctantly.

"However, with jet fuel now at more than US$60 a barrel and
showing no sign of falling, an increase in the airline's fuel
surcharge was unavoidable," he said.

"The hedging we have in place and the higher fuel surcharge will
not cover all of the increased cost of jet fuel," Mr. Gregg
said.

"Qantas will continue to absorb much of this increased cost and
seek greater efficiencies across the business."

Qantas first announced a fuel surcharge in May. It increased its
domestic surcharge from $6 to AU$10 a sector, and its surcharge
on international sectors from AU$15 to AU$22 a sector, in
August.

The AU$12 fuel surcharge for Qantas Domestic, QantasLink,
Jetstar and domestic New Zealand services and the AU$29
surcharge for Qantas International and Australian Airlines
services will be effective on tickets issued and travel
commenced on or after 20 October.

SATELLITE GROUP: Jury Finds Director Innocent
---------------------------------------------
Mr. Gregory Joseph Fisher, the former Managing Director of the
failed The Satellite Group Limited (Satellite), has been found
not guilty by a jury in the Sydney District Court on charges
brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
(ASIC).

Mr. Fisher, 39 years old from Edgecliff in NSW, had been charged
with three counts of dishonestly using his position as an
officer of Satellite to gain a financial advantage, and one
count of making a statement he knew to be false or misleading,
in order to obtain a financial advantage.

The charges related to a payment of $250,000 from Satellite to
Sydney Skytour Pty Ltd (Skytour) in October 1999, which ASIC had
alleged was made without the approval, or knowledge of
Satellite's Board of Directors.

Today's not guilty finding concludes ASIC's criminal action
against Mr. Fisher, first commenced in January 2001, relating to
his conduct as a director of Satellite.

On 5 December 2003, Mr. Fisher was found guilty by a jury in the
Sydney District Court on six charges of making improper use of
his position as an officer of Satellite to gain an advantage for
himself.

An ASIC investigation found that between April and June 2000,
Mr. Fisher used $220,000 of Satellite funds to finance his
personal sponsorship of fashion designer, Mr. Alex Perry, during
Mercedes Fashion Week in May 2000. The Board of Directors of
Satellite, whose approval was not sought nor given, had no
knowledge of the transactions.

On 1 June 2004, in the Sydney District Court, Norrish DCJ
directed the jury to deliver not guilty verdicts on four charges
brought by ASIC in relation to his purchase of a Dynacraft 46
foot luxury motor yacht and the sale of an apartment by a
subsidiary of Satellite.

ASIC had alleged that Mr. Fisher made improper use of his
position as an officer of Satellite and made a statement, which
he knew to be false and misleading to gain a financial advantage
for himself by offsetting $250,000 of the purchase price of the
yacht against the sale price of the apartment.

Mr. Fisher will reappear in the Sydney District Court for
sentencing in relation to the six earlier charges of making
improper use of his position as a director of Satellite on a
date to be fixed.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions prosecuted
ASIC's criminal actions against Mr. Fisher.

ELONG INCORPORATED: To Files for NASDAQ Share Listing
-----------------------------------------------------
Beleaguered Elong Incorporated is following the steps of
Ctrip.com International Ltd by enlisting in NASDAQ, Xinhuanet
reports. Ctrip.com's shares are up 117 percent from their
December IPO that raised US$75.6 million.

Elong Inc, an online travel service provider in China, aims to
raise about US$59 million, a U.S regulatory firm stated. The
company has tapped the services of Deutsche Bank to sell 4.385
million American Depository Shares (ADS) of the travel sales
provider in an indicated range of US$11.50-US$13.50 apiece,
while existing stake holders will sell some of their stocks
through the listing.

A net proceed of US$40.3 million is expected from the IPO on the
other hand an over-allotment option could propel the value of
the deal to US$68 million.

ELong booked revenue of US$7.3 million in the first half of this
year, 146 percent higher from the previous year. However, it
recorded a net loss of US$653,638 for the first half compared
with a US$408,937 loss in the first half of 2003.

BANK MANDIRI: To Secure Loans From Foreign Banks
------------------------------------------------
State-owned Bank Mandiri is considering obtaining bilateral
lending from foreign banks to help repay its maturing debts this
year, reports The Jakarta Post.

The bank proposed the move after it decided to scrap plans to
raise the required funds through an overseas bond offer.

Mandiri vice president director I Wayan Pugeg confirmed the
bank's plan, saying Mandiri was likely to seek debt-refinancing
facilities from foreign banks such as the London-based Hongkong
and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited (HSBC).

"We would prefer to seek bilateral financing for our debts.
Currently, we are still studying proposals from several banks,
mostly foreign banks, such as HSBC," Mr. Pugeg said.

Mandiri needed to refinance between US$300 million and US$400
million debt due this year. The original plan was to service the
loans using the proceeds of a bond issuance worth at least
US$150 million.

According to Mr. Pugeg, the bonds would now be Mandiri's last
resort due to concerns over a possible increase in the global
interest rate, which would create a heavy burden for the bank.

Meanwhile, Mandiri refuses to convert its bad loans in ailing
carrier PT Merpati Nusantara Airline into equity unless other
creditors agreed to do the same. Instead, the bank urged Merpati
to amend its business plan to enable creditors to gain maximum
benefit from the proposed debt to equity conversion.

Mandiri also has huge bad loans in food and beverage firm PT
Suba Indah and in pulp and paper manufacturer PT Kiani Kertas
worth around IDR300 billion and IDR1.76 trillion, respectively.

In the case of Suba Indah, the bank plans to extend the
repayment schedule of the debt principal in order to give the
company a chance to revive its business so it could refinance
its borrowings.

As for Kiani, Mandiri is currently having problems with
commitments made by Kiani's new investo, Novela International,
to provide the company some US$50 million in working capital.
The capital is needed to help revive Kiani's business so that it
can pay debts to Mandiri.

Due primarily to the Kiani bad loans, Mandiri's gross non-
performing loans ratio rose to 8.4 percent from 6.6 percent as
of the first quarter of this year as the bank had to set aside a
huge provision to cover the bad assets.

Mandiri bought the Kiani loans from the now-defunct Indonesian
Bank Restructuring Agency in 2001.

PERTAMINA: U.S. Diplomats Report Query Dispute with Exxonmobil
--------------------------------------------------------------
Two diplomats of the United States reported to the East Java
Legislative Assembly (DPRD) a dispute between state oil firm PT
Pertamina and U.S.-based Exxonmobil regarding oil exploration in
Bojonegoro, Asia Pulse reports.

The U.S. embassy's Political Officer Marc L. Defjardins and U.S.
Consul General in Surabaya Philip Antweiler spoke with DPRD
Chairman Fathorrasjid and DPRD Vice-Chairman Suhartono inside
the Assembly building.

Mr. Fathorrasjid said the two U.S. officials came to clarify the
dispute between ExxonMobil and Pertamina.

"They also reminded us about the need for legal certainty and
asked us to help resolve the dispute," he said.

"The US company was surprised by a recent statement by Pertamina
president director Widya Purnama that the state company wished
to take over oil exploration in Bojonegoro from ExxonMobil while
the US company had already invested a lot of funds in the
region's oil potential," he added.

Mr. Fathorrasjid said he was planning to meet with Pertamina and
ExxonMobil officials to obtain further information on the
dispute in order to avoid possible bias.

The foreign diplomats declined to make a press statement
regarding their visit.

* Strategic State Enterprises Should Be Saved, Says Trade Union
---------------------------------------------------------------
A strategic state company trade union is urging the new
president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, to protect strategic
enterprises from all possibility of being misused, relates
Antara.

"This is our call on Mr.Yudhoyono and we hope strategic state
enterprises will become a pilot project in fighting corruption
cases after he is officially installed as president," Trade
Union Federation (FSP) of Strategic State Enterprises chairman
Syinar Budhi Arta said.

He said his union had prepared three big cases of corruption
worth more than IDR1 trillion against PT Telkom, PT PLN and PT
Pertamina, respectively.

Meanwhile, Deputy Chairman of PKS's faction in The House, Irwan
Prajitno said that the abusing in the state enterprises usually
caused by the last government's policies.

Therefore, he said, the new elected president SBY should made a
Review Team of state enterprise's policy.

ALL NIPPON: JCR Assigns BBB+ to Bonds
-------------------------------------
The Japan Credit Rating Agency Limited (JCR) has assigned BBB+
ratings to the two series of bonds to be issued under the shelf
registration of All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd.

Issues       Amount(bln)  Issue Date     Due Date       Coupon
bonds no.20  JPY10        Oct. 27, 2004  Oct. 27, 2011  1.44%
bonds no.21  JPY10        Oct. 27, 2004  Oct. 27, 2014  2.09%
Covenants: Negative Pledge
Commissioned Company: No
Shelf Registration:
Maximum: JPY200 billion
Valid: two years effective from March 26, 2004

Rationale:

JCR announced the affirmation of BBB+ for ANA on October 6,
2004. There have been no significant changes in the operation
and financial structure of the company that affect the rating
since then. The proceeds from sales of the bonds are expected to
be used for capital spending as well as repayment of the
borrowings and redemption of bonds. However, the issues are not
likely to have material impact on the capital structure.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: IRCJ Begins Full-scale Asset Evaluation
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan started a
full assessment of the assets of Daiei Incorporated on Thursday,
a day after the ailing firm decided to involve the IRCJ in its
restructuring, reports The Japan Times.

The IRCJ, which formed a team of 250 outside accountants and
lawyers tasked to look into Daiei's books and interview Daiei
President Kunio Takagi and other executives, hopes to finish the
asset evaluation and draft a revival plan by the end of the
year.

The IRCJ has been assessing Daiei's assets since early September
but has made little progress because Daiei has been
uncooperative, insisting on rebuilding itself on its own with
the help of private sponsors.

Business continued as usual at Daiei's Tokyo office in Minato
Ward where Mr. Takagi convened a meeting with the firm's
executives to explain his decision. He also sent an e-mail
message to all Daiei employees, asking them to try to make
stores that will be "loved by customers more than ever."

Seiken Sugiura, deputy chief Cabinet secretary, told a news
conference that it is a "very good thing" that Daiei has decided
to work through the IRCJ.

On Wednesday, Daiei decided to turn to IRCJ for help after
months of bickering with its three main creditors UFJ Bank,
Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and Mizuho Corporate Bank.

The three lenders had pressured Daiei to seek IRCJ's support to
help expedite their bad-loan write offs. An IRCJ-led
restructuring program would boost Daiei's creditworthiness and
allow lenders to upgrade billions of yen of remaining Daiei
loans, now judged as nonperforming.

Daiei, a recipient of two bailouts by its creditor banks in 2001
and 2002, initially planned to seek private company support,
fearing that approaching the IRCJ would mean losing its control
over the revival process.

---------------------------------------------
Japan Tobacco has considered mergers and acquisitions (M&A) as a
major option to ensure business growth and help it cope with a
steady slump in the domestic tobacco market, Reuters reports.

Japan Tobacco President and CEO Katsuhiko Honda said the company
is also considering purchasing its rivals' tobacco brands or
regional operations, aside from outright buying of a company.

"Privatization in countries like Turkey is also an important
factor we are closely watching," Honda disclosed.

However, Mr. Honda clarified that Japan Tobacco, best known for
its Camel, Winston, Salem and Mil Seven brands, was not blindly
chasing deals, saying its major aim is to optimize growth in its
existing operations.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: To Resume Ad Activities After Car Launch
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ailing Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is to resume advertising
following the release of a new model by the end of the month,
says Asia Intelligence Wire.

The decision came on a judgment that the automaker will be able
to gain the understanding of consumers as it has completed
investigations into defect concealment cases dating back 1979.

In order to recover from plunging sales, Mitsubishi Motors will
on October 25 launch the Colt Plus compact wagon, its first new
model in 17 months.

As trials have been going on against the company and its former
executives for the cases such as fatal accidents involving
defective Mitsubishi vehicles, advertising will be increased
little by little to avoid any unpleasant feelings for the
public, Managing Director Akira Kijima said.

Mitsubishi Motors has suspended its ad campaigns since June when
its massive defect cover-ups were made known to the public.

The company has started releasing in late September newspaper
and television ads to apologize to the families of the people
killed in the mishaps and to appeal for understanding of its
efforts to prevent such defect cover-ups from happening again.

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: Forms Foundry Alliance with Xilinx
-------------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation (TSE: 6502) and Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX)
have announced a strategic foundry relationship under which
Toshiba will manufacture Xilinx high-performance field
programmable gate array (FPGA) products.

The companies have already achieved a key milestone with the
successful output of functional 90-nanometer (nm) first silicon
at Toshiba's state-of-the-art 300-mm-wafer manufacturing plant
at Oita, in Kyushu, Japan. Toshiba will start volume
manufacturing in the first quarter of calendar year 2005.

Toshiba and Xilinx attribute first silicon success to their
proven technology expertise as pioneers in the industry's race
to 90nm manufacturing. Both Toshiba and Xilinx were among only a
handful of semiconductor industry leaders delivering 90nm
products in 2003.

As part of the manufacturing agreement, Xilinx will make advance
payments to Toshiba, which will be offset against future wafer
purchases.

* Corporate Bankruptcies Fall 10% in September
----------------------------------------------
Corporate bankruptcies in Japan dropped 10 percent in September
from a year earlier, marking the 25th consecutive month of
decline, Bloomberg reports.

A report by the Tokyo Shoko Research Limited showed the number
of bankruptcies fell to 1,090 with combined liabilities worth
JPY464.4 billion (US$4.24 billion), down 57 percent from last
year.

Japan has seen its bankruptcies falling as the world's second-
biggest economy bounces back from a third recession since 1991,
which helped companies cut debts and sustain operations.

The Japanese government forecasts a 3.5 percent economic growth
in the fiscal year ending March 31, which would be fastest in
eight years.

Meanwhile, Teikoku Databank America Limited reported that in the
first six months of the current fiscal year, the number of
bankruptcies dipped 18 percent to 6,713 from the same period
last year. The amount of liabilities, on the other hand, fell 42
percent to JPY3.16 trillion.

Companies with liabilities of less than JPY10 million are
excluded from the Tokyo Shoko Research report, which is used by
the government to help assess the country's economic situation.

SSANGYONG MOTOR: Union and SAIC Set to Discuss Conditions
---------------------------------------------------------
Ssangyong Motor Co.'s labor union was scheduled to hold talks
Friday with representatives of China's Shanghai Automotive
Industry Corp., (SAIC) reports Asia Pulse, citing Yonhap News.

The meeting will discuss the demands of the union regarding the
acquisition of Ssangyong by Shanghai Automotive.  The meeting is
also considered a crucial factor in the sale as workers are
poised to launch a full strike if SAIC rejects their job
guarantee and other demands.

"We stand firm on our position that we will embark on a full
strike if Shanghai Automotive chooses not to accept our
demands," Lee Young-ho, a union spokesman, told Yonhap News
Agency.

A month after SAIC was selected as preferred bidder for the
48.9-percent stake in Ssangyong, the union set out a
precondition, which includes, guarantees of job security
expansion of production facilities and sales networks as well as
increased spending on research and investment. Guarantees of
independent management and the continued use of the Ssangyong
Motor brand are also among them.

Hu Maoyuan, SAIC president promised to maintain and improve
Ssangyong Motor's existing facilities and retain all workers
after the takeover.

However, it remains to be seen whether SAIC will accept some of
the union's tougher demands such as the limited transfer of
Ssangyong Motor's technology to the Chinese automaker.

Due diligence has been done on Ssangyong Motor and is in last-
minute discussions with the South Korean automaker's creditors
on completion of the sale.

Ssangyong Motor has been up for sale since its creditors bailed
it out following the country's 1997-98 foreign exchange crisis.

NATIONAL POWER: Government Allows Monthly Power Rate Changes
------------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Energy Regulatory Commission will allow power
utilities to automatically adjust their charges without prior
approval through a new set of rules set to take effect next
month, Dow Jones reports.

"In effect, this scraps the Generation Rate Adjustment Mechanism
(GRAM), but there are conditions to be complied with," said ERC
Chairman Rodolfo Albano.

The ERC earlier said it was reviewing GRAM to allow for monthly
adjustments by the National Power Corporation (Napocor) and
Manila Electric Co. (Meralco).

GRAM allows power firms to recover fluctuations in fuel prices
and in the cost of power bought from independent power producers
every three months. An application for an adjustment has to be
filed with the commission for approval.

Under the new rules, the power utilities can implement automatic
rate adjustments to recover power costs without having to seek
approval. However, they will be required to justify any
adjustment, Mr. Albano said.


NATIONAL STEEL: Takeover Deal Fails to Secure BSP Certificate
-------------------------------------------------------------
The sale of National Steel Corporation (NSC) to Global
Infrastructure Holdings Inc. (GIHI) remains in limbo as
concerned parties have failed to secure a certificate of
eligibility from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank
of the Philippines, or BSP), the Business World reports.

Sources said NSC creditor banks had committed to secure a
certificate of eligibility from the BSP by October 8. The
certificate entitles the transaction as eligible under the
Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) Law of 2002 to avail of tax perks.

Sources said the deal couldn't push through without the crucial
BSP certification. The BSP had earlier approved the PhP13.25-
billion sale of the Iligan-based steel plant as an SPV
transaction.

A BSP official confirmed yesterday that the monetary authority
has not issued the certificate, saying it is "still being
processed."

PHILIPPINE REALTY: Share Trading Suspension Lifted
--------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Stock Exchange said the share trading suspension
on Philippine Realty & Holdings Corporation (RLT.PH) will be
lifted on October 21, as the rehabilitation won't affect the
Company's capital structure or result in its re-organization,
Dow Jones reports.

Philippine Realty and Holdings Corporation (RLT) is one of the
leading real estate developers in the country. It was
incorporated on July 13, 1981, but development activities began
only in 1986 when capitalization was increased to P100 million
from the initial Php2 million to accommodate the entry of new
stockholders. Presently, it has an authorized capital stock of
P8 billion divided into 8 billion shares, of which 4.69 billion
shares are outstanding and subscribed.

The Company's main real estate activity since it started
operations has been the development and sale of
residential/office condominium projects and to a limited extent,
the lease of commercial and office spaces.
