AUSTRALIAN FOODS: Court Appoints Receiver and Manager
-----------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
obtained orders in the Supreme Court of Western Australia
appointing Mr. Barry Honey, of McGrathNicol and Partners, the
receiver and manager of Australian Foods Company Pty Ltd (AFC).

AFC is a Perth-based trader that purchases and exports grain.
The sole director of AFC is Mr. Pavan Shivnani.

The Deputy Executive Director of Enforcement, Mr. Allen Turton
said ASIC commenced proceedings due to concerns about AFC's
solvency and the state of the Company's books and records.

"A receiver and manager was appointed in order to preserve AFC's
assets for the benefit of creditors until the Company's affairs
are fully investigated," Mr. Turton said.

The Court also made orders:

(1) Freezing AFC's bank accounts,

(2) Requiring Mr. Shivnani to deliver up AFC's books and records
to the receiver and manager;

(3) That Mr. Shivnani deliver up to the Court any current
passports in his possession, or under his control, to be held by
the Court until 12 November 2004 or until further orders; and

(4) That Mr. Shivnani be prohibited from leaving Australia
without the consent of the Court until 12 November 2004 or until
further order.

"We have taken this action to determine the true state of the
business and protect the interests of the creditors. ASIC will
not hesitate to pursue companies that fail to properly fulfill
their responsibilities and comply with the law," Mr. Turton
added.

The matter has been adjourned for a further hearing on 2
November 2004.

CORRPRO AUSTRALIA: Ex-director Pleads Guilty to Fraud Charges
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Gregory John Waring, the former managing director of Corrpro
Companies Australia Pty Ltd (Corrpro Australia), has pleaded
guilty in the County Court of Victoria to charges brought by the
Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr. Waring, of Taylors Lakes, Victoria, pleaded guilty to five
charges under the Crimes Act and two charges under the
Corporations Act, following an ASIC investigation into his
conduct as managing director of Corrpro Australia.

ASIC alleged Mr. Waring falsified the accounts of Corrpro
Australia, a subsidiary of the United States-based Corrpro
Companies Inc., a Company listed on the American Stock Exchange
(AMEX).

Corrpro Companies Inc. placed the Australian Company into
administration following the detection of accounting
irregularities, and re-stated its 2001 accounts, which reduced
its net income by US$3.6 million.

ASIC further alleged Mr. Waring:

(1) Provided false information to Corrpro Australia's auditors
and the Australian Taxation Office;

(2) Obtained a financial advantage by deception, by using
falsified accounts to obtain credit from the Bank of Melbourne;
and

(3) Improperly used his position as managing director.

The matter will return to Court for further sentencing
submissions on Wednesday 3 November 2004.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is prosecuting
the matter.

ASIC acknowledges the assistance of the United States Securities
and Exchange Commission during its investigation.

GRIBBLES GROUP: Healthscope May Increase Takeover Offer
-------------------------------------------------------
Hospital operator Healthscope Limited is planning to increase
its takeover bid for Gribbles Group Limited to gain the support
of the pathology firm's founder and major shareholder Wallace
Cameron, Dow Jones relates, citing the Sydney Morning Herald.

Gribbles' shares were suspended from trading Monday morning as
the cash-strapped pathology group attempted to map out terms
that would encourage Mr. Cameron, who controls 43 percent of the
Company through EC Medical Investments, to accept the offer.

Mr. Cameron has earlier indicated he may accept a revised bid of
63 cents a share, three cents a share higher than the original
offer. Such an increase would value Gribbles at almost AU$285
million and ECMI's stake at around AU$123 million.

Healthscope has already acquired 10 per cent of Gribbles on the
market and plans to finance the purchase through an AU$195
million capital raising and debt consolidation.

Meanwhile, speculations emerged that Mr. Cameron or a third
party may unveil a counter offer.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Reaches Agreement With FAAA
-------------------------------------------
In a media release, Qantas Airways said Tuesday it had reached
agreement with the union representing long haul flight
attendants on the establishment of a crew base in London and a
new enterprise bargaining agreement that will come into effect
in December.

The Chief Executive Officer of Qantas, Geoff Dixon, said the
successful conclusion of negotiations followed discussions in
the Industrial Relations Commission and removed the threat of
industrial action by cabin crew over Christmas.

The main features of the agreement included:

(1) The establishment, as announced in June, of a Qantas crew
base in London for 400 international flight attendants that will
save AU$18 million annually through fostering efficiencies and
reduced accommodation and allowance costs;

(2) Capping the total number of international flight attendants
employed in overseas bases at 870 in the new enterprise
bargaining agreement (Qantas currently has about 370
international flight attendants based in Bangkok and Auckland);
and

(3) Australia-based flight attendants continuing to have access
to one flight a day to London (Qantas currently operates 27
flights a week to London).

"As we announced in June, the London crew base will deliver
significant savings and no current crew will lose their job as a
result of opening the base," Mr. Dixon said.

"Qantas now operates 27 return flights to London each week and
the establishment of the new crew base is in the best interests
of the business because it will deliver efficiencies that will
allow Qantas to continue to grow and be successful.

"Qantas is a global airline with very significant offshore
operations and we cannot continue to source all our people and
services in Australia alone.

"However, as we have said in the past, the majority of Qantas'
international crew and the majority of all Qantas employees will
continue to be based in Australia."

Mr. Dixon said Qantas and the FAAA International Division had
also reached agreement on a new enterprise bargaining agreement
that will come into effect in mid-December.

The agreement, which includes a three per cent per annum
increase for the next three years, will be put to long haul
flight attendants for approval.

Mr. Dixon said Qantas had stated previously that it was training
fixed term international flight attendants in case they were
needed over the peak Christmas holiday period and also in case
the FAAA carried out its threat of industrial action over
Christmas.

In light of the settlement reached with the FAAA, Qantas was
reviewing its requirements for fixed term flight attendants over
the coming months and would be speaking to all the trainees
about other opportunities that arise across the Qantas Group.

CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Names Delinquent Debtors in Newspaper Ads
-------------------------------------------------------------
China Construction Bank (CCB) and China Cinda Asset Management
have purchased advertising space to name delinquent companies
and individuals who have defaulted on their debts, according to
The Standard.

The 22-page joint public announcement began to appear late last
week on Beijing Daily, which revealed the names of more than
5,300 debtors together with their loan contact numbers and the
debt guarantors.

Three quarters of the CNY10 billion loans were for home
mortgages, car loans and credit card debt.

Meanwhile CCB's branch in southwestern Sichuan province and
Cinda's office in Chengdu, Sichuan's provincial capital, jointly
bought a similar 17-page ad in the Sichuan Daily.

Some debtors have promised to pay up as soon as possible
following the release of the ads. Other debtors, on the other
hand, accused the bank of invading their privacy and damaging
their reputation.

This "name them and shame them" tactic is hardly new as banks
made similar ads several years ago, wherein debtors identities
were publicized along with its respective debt amount. This time
though, the move drew flack from critics who said the move
violated debtors privacy. But as is often the case in China, it
is not clear such rights actually exist.

However, a legal precedent exists on publicizing the names of
borrowers who defaults, as Courts have often publicized the same
information in the ads after a civil litigation to push the
debtors to.

CCB and Cinda are pressured to collect its bad debts and clean
its balance sheets before its expected IPO. Cinda, the
government agency, is tasked to dispose of non-performing loans.

Cinda officials declined to comment on Monday.


CHINA CONSTRUCTION: KPMG Completes Review of Finances
-----------------------------------------------------
KPMG, a renown auditing firm, will conduct a complete a review
of China Construction Bank's (CCB) finances, reports the
Financial Times.

After nearly three years of restructuring CCB will have its
finances reviewed professionally. The financial data gathered
from its 30,000 branches will allow the firm to draft a
prospectus for the $5billion to $10 billion listing likely to
take place in Hong Kong and New York next year.

The initial public offering is instrumental in cleaning up the
debt-laden balance sheet of the bank.

Foreign investors have been closely watching the auditing, as
the results will dictate the price and level of demand for the
coming deals.

The audit has now placed CCB ahead of Bank of China (BOC) in its
bid to for international capital market, as
PricewaterhouseCooper's is still working on Bank of China's
audit. BOC is still to formally select advisers for its IPO,
although Goldman Sachs and UBS have been helping its
restructuring.

Citigroup, GE Capital, Dutch Bank ING are tipped as potential
buyers of CCB's stake before the expected IPO.

INDOFOOD SUKSES: Net Profit Shrinks 37%
---------------------------------------
PT Indofood Sukses Makmur's net profit shrank by 37% to IDR284.6
billion (US$31.6 million) in the first nine months of this year
over the same period last year, reports Asia Pulse.

Anthony Salim, Company president, stated that the sliding profit
is due to the rupiah's fall to a level of IDR9,170 per US dollar
in September 2004 and from 8,465 in December 2003.

Its largest income producers are still instant noodles, wheat
flour and cooking oil divisions, as it remains the largest
instant noodle producer in Southeast Asia. The three product
divisions account for 86% of its total income of IDR13.1
trillion in the January-Sept period.

Anthony stated that despite stiff competition, the food Company
still succeeded in maintaining its strong domination in instant
noodle market due to effective brand building and greater
efficiency in distribution systems.

But despite its strong market domination, instant noodles sale
fell to 7.23 billion packs while wheat flour volume rose to 1.8
million tons from 12.3 million tons and cooking oil increased to
346,300 tons from 326,000 tons respectively in the first nine
months of this year, from the same period last year.

Company assets were valued at IDR16.4 trillion by Sept. 2004, up
from IDR15.3 trillion by the end of 2003.

booked a net loss of approximately IDR379 billion or down 257%
from the same period last year, showing forex loss of IDR242
billion, Indoexchange reveals.

Semen Cibinong's higher payment for its foreign currency debt
contributed to the Company's highest outlay in Company's loss.

Sales revenue in the third quarter increased by 3% to IDR1.7
trillion, but was offset by production cost of approximately 6%
to IDR1.6 trillion higher than in the previous period.

KANEBO LIMITED: Ogi Takes Presidential Seat
-------------------------------------------
A former bureaucrat has replaced Akiyoshi Nakajima as president
of Kanebo Limited, says The Japan Times.

In line with rehabilitation efforts, the firm also appointed
Makoto Yoshitaka, the chief financial officer of Louis Vuitton
Japan Co, to head its financial division.

Kanebo's new president, Takehiko Ogi, is a managing director of
the Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan (IRCJ). He
joined Culture Convenience Club Co., a video store chain, in
1997 after leaving the old Ministry of International Trade and
Industry and has been involved in Kanebo's rehabilitation since
July.

Mr. Ogi, 43, is tasked to lead Kanebo's rehabilitation,
including the consolidation of its diverse business portfolio,
which was believed to have caused the firm's financial woes and
eventual decision to seek government help last spring.

Mr. Nakajima said the two outsiders were brought in to infuse
Kanebo with "fresh blood" as it tries to revive its business
under the IRCJ.

KOBE STEEL: To Form Automotive Steel Processing Venture in China
----------------------------------------------------------------
Kobe Steel, Ltd. plans to establish a joint venture to process
specialty steel wire rod in Foshan, near Guangzhou, Guangdong
Province, China. Steel trader Metal One Corporation and wire rod
processors Kyodo Shaft Co., Ltd. and Sugita Wire, Ltd., both of
which have business ties to Kobe Steel, will also hold equity in
the new Company.

The joint venture, provisionally called Kobe Wire Products
(Foshan) Co., Ltd., will manufacture cold drawn steel bar and
cold heading quality (CHQ) steel wire. The processed bar and
wire will be supplied to Japanese auto parts manufacturers in
China for use in making suspension springs and high strength
nuts and bolts, which are both critical automotive parts.

Kobe Wire Products will be established in November with
registered capital of JPY725 million. Total investment in the
joint venture is projected at JPY1,812.5 million. Kobe Steel is
to have a 60% equity share, Metal One 25%, Kyodo Shaft 7.5% and
Sugita Wire 7.5%. In the first phase, the venture is anticipated
to employ 80 people.

Kobe Wire Products will start with a nominal capacity of 15,000
tons per year, which would increase as demand goes up.
Production is anticipated to begin in April 2006. The chairman
of Kobe Wire Products will be Tomoyuki Kaya, senior officer at
Kobe Steel. The president will be Noriaki Hiraga, deputy general
manager of the Planning & Administration Department in Kobe
Steel's Iron & Steel Sector.

Following strong economic growth in China, automobile production
in 2010 is anticipated to grow to 8 million to 10 million units,
in comparison to the 4.4 million cars made in 2003. Similarly in
2010, Japanese carmaker's production in the Guangzhou area is
expected to rise to over 1 million units a year, versus 190,000
cars in 2003. The increase is creating a rapidly growing need
for locally procured parts. Japanese auto parts makers in China
have been boosting output and a growing number of related
suppliers have started production there.

Kobe Wire Products will be located in the Guangzhou area, where
Japan's three major carmakers have set up plants. This area is
anticipated to become the biggest base for Japanese auto
production in China.

Kobe Steel is renown for its high quality specialty steel wire
rod for the automotive industry - a product in which it excels.
To strengthen its capability to supply high quality steel, Kobe
Steel is planning a number of forward-looking capital
investments. It is installing a new continuous caster at its
Kobe Works for start-up in September 2006. It also plans to
reline the blast furnace.

Steel demand in the Asian market is expected to continue
increasing and Kobe Steel's Kobe and Kakogawa Works are being
positioned to better meet the demand for specialty steel
products. With its involvement in wire rod processing in China,
where auto makers and parts manufacturers have set up
operations, Kobe Steel is aiming to improve customer service by
building a flexible, efficient supply network for wire rod
products.

Kobe Steel already has wire rod processing ventures in Thailand.
With an expanded number of locations, it will be better
positioned to service Japanese auto parts makers and further
solidify its position as the premier maker of specialty steel
wire rod products.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Continues Strong Global Expansion in Q2/FY2004
---------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) announced
details of its group overseas sales for the second quarter of
fiscal year 2004 (July-September).

MFTBC succeeded in expanding its business in every world region.
Overseas sales increased by 21% or 4,800 units to 28,000 trucks
and buses against the same period in the previous fiscal year.
In the first six months of fiscal year 2004, overseas sales
increased by 24% to 59,300 units, a plus of 11,300 units.

Bert van Dijk, MFTBC Board member and responsible for
International Sales & Services, said: "We are very pleased with
our strong sales increase. In the second half of this fiscal
year we expect a slower growth due to market fluctuations and
the exceptionally strong performance in the second half of the
previous fiscal year. Nevertheless, we will cross the 100,000
unit threshold."

Mitsubishi Fuso increased its overseas sales in every market. In
the first six months, MFTBC achieved a particularly strong
volume growth in Asia and the Middle East:

In the Asia region (excluding Japan), group sales went up by 20%
to 35,900 units. This represents the largest unit sales increase
of all regions (plus 5,900 units).

In the Middle East region, group sales increased by 45% to 8,800
units, a plus of 2,700 units.

Mitsubishi Fuso domestic sales (domestic production and exports
from Japan) are reported on a monthly basis by automobile
associations. Overall, the domestic market contracted by minus
18%. In the first half of fiscal year 2004, Mitsubishi Fuso
domestic sales reached 32,400 trucks and buses. The market share
of Mitsubishi Fuso slipped by 3.3 percentage points to 25.2%
during the first six months. The strong overseas sales were able
to counterbalance domestic losses in volume.

In fiscal year 2003, global sales of trucks and buses ran at
193,000 units. Overseas sales of 97,300 units accounted for 51%
of global unit sales.

In March 2004, MFTBC became a fully consolidated subsidiary of
DaimlerChrysler AG after the rise of its share to 65%. As an
integral part of the largest commercial vehicle manufacturer in
the world, MFTBC is better positioned than ever to master its
current challenges and to compete in the increasingly
competitive global truck and bus market

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Denies Tie-up with PSA Peugeot
------------------------------------------------
Embattled Mitsubishi Motors Corporation denied reports that it
was in talks with France's PSA Puegeot Citroen Group for a
possible business alliance, reports Channel News Asia.

The Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper and other dailies earlier
reported the ailing carmaker was negotiating with PSA Peugeot
for a tie-up that would include an original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) agreement for minivans and joint production
in North America.

"Mitsubishi Motors is continually studying the possibility of
partnerships in individual businesses to strengthen our efforts
to achieve business realization as soon as possible," the
Company said in a statement.

"All stories concerning our relationship with PSA Peugeot
Citroen are based on speculation," it said.

According to the Nihon Keizai, Mitsubishi expects to maintain
local and international production levels by securing several
OEM deals.

The daily said that a Peugeot deal would cover the production of
vehicles similar to the Grandis minivan for the sale under the
French group's brand in Europe. The minivans and other vehicles
would be jointly produced at a Mitsubishi Motors plant in the
United States.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: May Put Plant Closure Plan on Hold
-----------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is likely to scrap plans to shut
down its Aichi prefecture facility, in view of its ongoing
negotiations with Nissan Motor Corporation on the possibility of
supplying more minicars, AFX News reports, citing the Nihon
Keizai Shimbun.

Under its original plan, Mitsubishi Motors is set to close the
Aichi plant late next year and transfer operations to a plant in
Okayama prefecture and a subsidiary in Gifu prefecture.

The Okayama site has been supplying 20,000 commercial mini-
vehicles annually to Nissan since 2003, and its output capacity
will need to be lifted by more than 100,000 units a year if
Mitsubishi Motors wins a deal to provide minicars to Nissan, the
report said. The small cars will then be sold under the Nissan
brand.

Around 500 Mitsubishi Motors employees have already left the
Okazaki plant under an early retirement program, or have moved
to Toyota Motor Corp and its group companies, and scrapping the
initial plan could result in additional costs for Mitsubishi
Motors.


RESONA HOLDINGS: Units' Clients Applies for Special Conciliation
----------------------------------------------------------------
Resona Holdings, Inc. gave notice that Osaka City Dome Co., Ltd.
and Crysta Nagahori Co., Ltd. (Companies) which are customers of
its banking subsidiary, Resona Bank, Ltd. and The Kinki Osaka
Bank, filed applications for special conciliation with the Osaka
District Court.

As a result of this development, there arose a concern that the
claims to the Companies may become irrecoverable or their
collection may be delayed.

-----------------------------------------------
Chohung Bank was banned from acting as a primary dealer for
government bonds for at least two years, reports JongAng Daily.

unable to meet dealing requirements, as it failed to reach
trading minimums in the last quarter ending September 30.

Chohung, a unit of South Korea's second-largest financial
services Company, was one of the primary dealers the government
appointed in 1999 to revamp its Treasury bond dealing system,
allowing the market trading of Treasury bonds in order to boost
pricing transparency.

To date, some 22 banks and securities firms act as primary
dealers for Korean Treasury bonds.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: To Settle Php500M Maturing Plans This Year
-------------------------------------------------------------
College Assurance Plans Philippines Inc. (CAP) assured the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it can settle some
Php500 million in tuition fees, as it continues to service
existing clients whose plans will mature this year, ABS-CBN News
reports, citing CAP First Vice President Bobby Cafe.

The pre-need firm has already serviced Php2.1 billion in tuition
fees for the year and is expected to settle more of maturing
plans before the year ends.

Mr. Cafe said the Company plans to raise the fund by liquefying
part of its trust fund while other funding sources would
complete the whole amount needed. He declined to disclose these
other funding sources.

According to a previous TCR-AP report, CAP's net loss in the
first half of 2004 increased five-fold from Php330 million in
the same period last year. The net loss is also 12 percent
higher than the CAP's projected Php1.5 billion for the first six
months of 2004.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Wants To Sell MRT Bonds To Pay Tuition Fees
--------------------------------------------------------------
The College Assurance Plans Philippines, Inc. (CAP) is asking
the approval of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for
its plan to sell a portion of its PhP3.4-billion Metro Rail
Transit bonds, reports the Business World.

The pre-need firm needs to draw on a portion of the MRT bonds,
the Company's most attractive asset, to cover school payments
for the second semester.

CAP First Vice President Bobby Cafe declined to say how much of
the bonds the Company would sell.

The Company posted a PhP17-billion deficiency in its trust
assets as of end-2003. During the period, CAP had PhP8.4 billion
in trust assets, compared with an actuarial reserve liability,
or projected future liabilities, of PhP25.5 billion.


MANILA ELECTRIC: Seeks Court OK For Tax Refund
----------------------------------------------
The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) is seeking support from the
Supreme Court that it is entitled to a tax refund, saying its
tax payments exceeded what should have been paid as a result of
its PhP30-billion refund to customers, Business World reports.

The Court earlier this year ordered Meralco to refund customers
of excess charges dating back to 1994. The power distributor had
estimated the refund to cost some PhP30 billion.

Meralco said it is entitled to the tax refund because the refund
of PhP0.167 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) ordered by the Court on
behalf of its customers reduced its gross revenues and taxable
net income during the relevant years.

NATURAL PARK: Audit Committee Comments on PAH Shares Sale
---------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to the Board of Directors' Meeting of Natural Park
Public Company Limited held on October 5, 2004, the board
unanimously approved a resolution to propose to the
Shareholders' Meeting the consideration and confirmation of the
shareholding and management restructuring plan of the Company.

The said Restructuring Plan was approved at the Extraordinary
General Meeting of Shareholders No. 1/2004 on 14 September 2004,
provided there is a sale of 625,000 ordinary shares of Pacific
Avant Holdings Company Limited (PAH) that were held by Pacific
Meridien Resort Company Limited (PMR), a subsidiary of the
Pacific Assets Public Company Limited (PA), the purchaser
proposed by Avant Resorts Limited (Avant) as per Shareholders
Agreement re: Pacific Avant Holding, totaling Baht
1,620,000,000.

The Audit Committee Meeting on 22 October 2004, which was
attended by only three persons including Audit Committee
Chairman Mr. Weerawong Chittmittrapap, refused to provide any
opinion on the proposed agenda to the Shareholders' Meeting in
order to prevent the conflict of interest.

After due consideration of the Audit Committee on the detail of
the sale of shares of PAH and the opinion of the financial
advisor on the above matter, the Audit Committee agreed that the
sale has no material impact on the Restructuring Plan.

Nonetheless, the final decision shall be based upon the decision
of the shareholders.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: Court Delay's Approval of Rehab Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
The Central Bankruptcy Court on Monday postponed the approval of
Thai Petrochemical Industry's (TPI) US$2.7-billion (THB10
billion) debt restructuring scheme, The Nation reports.

The move came after the firm's owner, Prachai Leophairanata,
lodged a new protest against the plan last week and filed an
alternative restructuring program for the Court to consider.

Kamol Teeravetponkul, the Central Bankruptcy judge presiding
over the case, said the Court must now compare both plans with
the firm's existing plan, which has been "fruitless" in reviving
the Company's business. He added the Court must also determine
if the process for approving the administrator's plan, which
gained 99.6 percent of TPI creditors' vote, was in line with the
bankruptcy law.

The Central Bankruptcy Court has ruled that the plan proposed by
the administrators did not conflict with the Kingdom's
Constitution, as Mr. Prachai previously claimed.

Mr. Prachai said he would appeal the matter to the Supreme
Court.

On Monday, TPI's plan administrator Thanong Bidaya and Mr.
Prachai engaged in a Court battle for support of their plans
after filing them last week.

Mr. Prachai argued the administrator's plan was unfair as it
would remove the Company's directors (including him), does not
include a stock buyback option for him, and would cut TPI's
capital to below its book value.

On the other hand, Mr. Thanong said his proposed plan would
permit Mr. Prachai to purchase an undetermined stake in the
Company, depending on the share allocation to be determined by
Finance Minister Somkid Jatusripitak.

The proposed plan is an attempt at a compromise between TPI
creditors' and Prachai's demands with the goal of ensuring the
Company's viability as an ongoing concern.

Meanwhile, TPI's labor union chairman Vichit Nitthayanont told
the Central Bankruptcy Court that the union supports the
administrator's plan because it would help the Company survive.
Among TPI's 8,500 employees, some 4,500 union members are
believed to back the plan.
