INCITEC PIVOT: Restructures to Boost Efficiency
-----------------------------------------------
Incitec Pivot Limited on Tuesday announced the first phase of a
major company restructure to ensure it retains its leading
position in the fertilizer market by being Australia's lowest-
cost supplier.

The efficiency drive includes consolidating some company
divisions, creating a more streamlined management structure and
reviewing staffing levels.

"Having secured the merger synergies, we are now reviewing the
cost base across the company," said Managing Director and CEO
Julian Segal.

"We are setting an example by starting at the top, where
consolidation of functions has allowed us to reduce the number
of General Manager positions from seven to five."

Mr. Segal, who previously led teams which turned around the
performance of Orica Mining Services businesses in
Australia/Asia and North America, said the company was focusing
on savings in the supply chain and corporate areas.

He said that senior management had been working on the new
restructure for some time. The need for greater efficiencies has
been highlighted by the drought currently affecting farmers and
the competitive market environment.

Mr. Segal said the internal reforms would not divert Incitec
Pivot from continually improving customer service though its
independent distribution network and direct to farmers.

"Our success or otherwise will ultimately be decided by the
farmers who use our products and we are single-minded about
meeting or exceeding their requirements," he said.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Currency Options Trader Goes to Jail
--------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Jeffrey Lucy, Chairman of the Australian Securities and
Investments Commission (ASIC), on Wednesday announced that Mr.
Luke Duffy, former head of the National Australia Bank Limited
(NAB) foreign currency options desk (FX Options Desk), has been
sentenced to 29 months imprisonment to serve a minimum of 16
months before release on a recognizance to be of good behavior
for a further 13 months, in relation to three charges brought by
ASIC.

Mr. Duffy, 35, of Albert Park, Victoria, was convicted and
sentenced before Judge Chettle of the County Court of Victoria
after pleading guilty to three charges of dishonestly using his
position as an employee of NAB in order to gain advantages for
himself and others.

ASIC alleged:

    (1) between 1 October 2003 and 9 January 2004, Mr Duffy was
involved in dishonestly entering and surrendering a total of 12
fictitious foreign exchange spot trades totaling approximately
AUD$117 million;

    (2) in the course of these fictitious trades, the FX Options
Desk met its profit target of $37 million for the 2003-2004 when
the true position was, in fact, a loss of $5 million and, as a
result, Mr. Duffy dishonestly received a net performance bonus
of $129,338 (Mr. Duffy repaid this amount to the NAB today) and
helped secure bonuses for members of his team; and

    (3) between 15 December 2003 and 9 January 2004, Mr Duffy
was involved in dishonestly entering seven fictitious options
trades resulting in a false profit of US$111,457,876.

The total of the fictitious profit created by this trading was
AUD$178,561,516.

In sentencing Mr. Duffy, the Court reduced the sentence that
would have been imposed otherwise by taking into account the
fact he pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and that he
has agreed to assist the prosecution and to give evidence
against three co-accused.

"This case demonstrates that senior employees who hold positions
of trust and responsibility will be held accountable for any
dishonest conduct and, especially where both the employer and
shareholders are deceived, significant jail sentences will be
imposed by the court," Mr. Lucy said.

The matter was prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of Public
Prosecutions.

Background

The three charges were laid against Mr. Duffy in December 2004.
At the same time, ASIC also laid charges against Mr. Gianni
Gray, Mr. Vincent Ficarra and Mr. David Bullen.

Mr. Gray and Mr. Ficarra will next appear in the Melbourne
Magistrates Court for a contested committal hearing on 1 August
2005. Neither Mr. Gray or Mr. Ficarra have been required to
enter their pleas.

Mr. Bullen is due to reappear in the County Court on 15 August
2005 for a trial. Mr. Bullen has pleaded not guilty to the
charges.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Snatches AFL Sponsorship
--------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank (NAB) has stolen the naming rights to
the pre-season AFL competition from Wizard Home Loans, spending
up to AU$15 million over five years for the privilege, relates
the Sydney Morning Herald.

The deal is part of NAB's efforts to strengthen its brand
following the foreign exchange trading scandal and boardroom
ruckus last year.

NAB's AFL deal brings an end to one of the most interesting
battles in the Australian financial services industry so far
this year.

Wizard has held the rights for the past four years, and chief
executive Mark Bouris made it clear he was not giving up without
a fight. At one stage, he even told NAB to go and find its own
sporting rights. But in the end Wizard was outbid by NAB, which
is rumoured to be paying between AU$2.5 million and AU$3 million
a year.

NAB is spending an estimated AU$20 million to become the major
sponsor of the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games and has also
recently signed up to sponsor the Australian Ballet and National
Press Club. It is also sponsoring the AFL Auskick and the AFL
Rising Star programs, which support young athletes.

For and on behalf of
China Medical Science Limited

Name:  Wong Sai Wa
Title: Chairman

Remarks:

1. Basis of presentation

The principal accounting policies adopted in preparing the
unaudited consolidated results conform with the Financial
Reporting Standards, including the Statements of Standard
Accounting Practice (the SSAPs) and Interpretations issued by
the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants
(HKICPA), the disclosure requirements of Hong Kong Companies
Ordinance and the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on
the Growth Enterprise Market of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong
Limited (GEM Listing Rules).

The principal accounting policies adopted in preparing the
unaudited consolidated results are consistent with those used in
the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 July 2004
of the Group.

2. Turnover

The Group's turnover represents the net invoiced value of goods
sold, after allowances for returns and trade discounts.

3. Discontinuing operations

The Group has decided to dispose of all its human drugs and
packaging materials businesses and thereafter focuses its
operations on veterinary drugs and animal vaccines. Further to
the disposal of Chengdu Mt. Green and Sichuan Future announced
on December 24, 2004, the Group is in the process of disposing
its entire 51.05% equity interest in Sichuan Shule to an
independent third party (the Proposed Disposal). The completion
of the Proposed Disposal is subject to the completion of certain
procedures. Details of the Proposed Disposal will be announced
as soon as practicable.

4. Tax expense

No provision for Hong Kong profits tax has been made, as the
Group had no assessable profits arising in Hong Kong for the
nine months ended 30 April 2005 (2004: Nil). Taxes on profits
assessable elsewhere have been calculated at the rates of tax
prevailing in the countries in which the Group operates, based
on existing legislation, interpretations and practices in
respect thereof.

The deferred tax credit of approximately HK$1,000 and
approximately HK$3,000 recognized for the three months and nine
months ended 30 April 2005 respectively (three months and nine
months ended 30 April 2004: approximately HK$4,000 and
approximately HK$12,000 respectively) represents the movement
for temporary difference arising from the acquisition of
subsidiaries.

5. Loss per share

The calculation of basic loss per share for the three months and
nine months ended April 30, 2005 was based on the unaudited net
loss attributable to shareholders of approximately HK$30,100,000
and approximately HK$57,309,000 respectively  (three months and
nine months ended April 30, 2004: approximately HK$10,646,000
and approximately HK$16,877,000 respectively) and the weighted
average number of 500,000,000 for the three months and nine
months ended April 30, 2005 (three months and nine months ended
April 30, 2004: 500,000,000) ordinary shares in issue during the
period.

No diluted loss per share are presented for the three months and
nine months ended April 30, 2005 and the three months and nine
months ended April 30, 2004 respectively as the potential
ordinary share issuable under the Company's share option scheme
had an anti-dilutive effect on the basic loss per share for the
relevant periods.

6. Dividend

The Directors do not recommend the payment of any interim
dividend for the nine months ended April 30, 2005. (2004: Nil)

PERTAMINA: To Launch Ops of New Giant Tanker
--------------------------------------------
PT Pertamina will finally operate the biggest tanker ever to be
built locally with a capacity of 30,000 Long Tons Dead Weight
(LTDW), The Jakarta Post reveals.

The state oil and gas firm has on Wednesday taken delivery of
the tanker from manufacturer PT PAL Indonesia.

Pertamina expects the new tanker, which would carry fuel from
refineries to Jakarta, Surabaya, Semarang and other major
cities, to strengthen its domestic fuel distribution fleet. The
tanker will also be used to transport fuel imported from
Singapore and Malaysia.

At present, Pertamina operates a variety of differently sized
tankers, from lighter ones to Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs).
The state oil firm owns 33 vessels, a third of which have been
operating for between 11 and 25 years. Other vessels are
chartered.

Three more tankers are currently under construction, namely MT
Plaju with a capacity of 6,500 LTDW by PT Dok & Perkapalan
Surabaya, as well as MT Balongan (6,500 LTDW) and MT Mundu
(3,500 LTDW) by Batam-based PT Nanindah Mutiara Shipyard.

Pertamina is looking to increase the capacity of its own fleet
from 20 percent of total required capacity to 40 percent, though
it has not specified a time frame.

* Minister Wants Losing State Funds Dissolved
---------------------------------------------
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yushoyono is planning to
order the liquidation of state-owned firms who failed to turn in
profits for three consecutive years, Asia Pulse reports.

The President said that in order for the stricken Indonesian
economy to recover, state firms failing to contribute to the
state income in dividend and taxes in the next three consecutive
years may have to be liquidated.

State companies with total assets of IDR1,313 trillion (US$148.8
billion) were expected to contribute to the country's economic
revival.

State Minister for State Enterprises Sugiharto said that in
2004, there were 31 state companies reporting losses totaling
IDR4.5 trillion.

So far no liquidation had been carried out, but they would be
restructured, Mr. Sugiharto said.

HITACHI LIMITED: Telecom Unit Unlikely To Meet Profit Goal
----------------------------------------------------------
Hitachi Limited's information and telecom systems division is
unlikely to meet its earnings goals due to falling hard-disc
drive operations, Dow Jones reports.

The telecom systems division suffered weaker sales and operating
profits of JPY2.268 trillion and JPY67.76 billion for the fiscal
year ended March 31.

The slump was caused by the company's weakened hard-disc drive
business. The division suffered an operating loss of JPY5.6
billion in 2004 due to a drop in product prices, and expects a
wider operating loss of JPY30 billion for this fiscal year.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Minister Koizumi Orders Safety Measures
-------------------------------------------------------
Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi has urged Japan Airlines (JAL)
to double-check maintenance and other safety measures, Kyodo
News reports.

The order was made after two nose-wheel tires broke off a Japan
Airlines passenger jet upon landing Wednesday.

No one was injured but a few passengers complained of nausea.

JAL officials apologized for the incident on Wednesday. Airline
officials say it is rare for both tires to come off at once even
though there are several cases a year in which planes become
stranded after their tires burst.

trucks and buses in five separate defect cases, Kyodo News
reports.

In one of the five cases, the automaker will recall some 37,000

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Halts Diamante, Sedan Production
---------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation plans to cease production of its
luxury Diamante and midclass Galant sedans at its Okazaki plant
by the end of this year, as part of its efforts to reduce the
number of its models, Dow Jones Newswires reports.

After halting production of the Galant and Diamante, Mitsubishi
will continue to produce its Colt and Colt Plus compact models,
Grandis minivan and Pajero iO SUV model at the Okazaki plant.

The carmaker incurred a group net loss of JPY474.79 billion
($4.34 billion) for the year ended March 31, deeper than the net
loss of 215.42 billion yen in the previous year, as the company
was hit by slumping sales in Japan and North America and heavy
costs to revamp its operations.

For the year ending March 31, 2006, the Company expects a
narrower group net loss of JPY64 billion.

April's sales volume.

"This was our best retail sales month of the year, and second
best since August 2004," said David Schembri, executive vice
president of sales and marketing at Mitsubishi Motors North
America. "All current models outperformed last month's sales
figures, and the very successful launch of the all-new 2006

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Launches Online Game to Promote Eclipse
----------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors North America will launch an online game to
promote the introduction of its redesigned 2006 Eclipse,
AutoWeek reports.

Called the "Thrill Ride Challenge," the game is a virtual timed
driving race on one of six roads from around the world. It will
be promoted through Wednesday, August 15, on Yahoo and a variety
of sites including ESPN.com, Yahoo Autos, Edmunds.com,
KellyBlueBook.com, AOL Autos, MSN, MP3.com, Gamespot.com and
iFilm.com.

The special Yahoo promotion will include a take over of the home
page on June 15, during which visitors will be greeted by a
Eclipse driving across the screen to promote access to the game.

The participant with the best time each week will win a
Mitsubishi flat screen TV or an Apple iPod.

Mitsubishi expects the one-day Yahoo takeover to generate 20,000
leads from prospective Eclipse buyers from the 100 million
impressions, the spokeswoman said.

The Company desperately needs the car to be a hit. The
automaker's U.S. vehicle sales have been in a virtual freefall.
It sold 55,132 units through May, a 38 percent drop from the
89,501 it sold a year ago.

The carmaker has also witnessed an exodus of executives,
including four marketing officials, since late last year.

The 2006 Eclipse is the first of three new models Mitsubishi
will introduce in the next 12 months.


RESONA HOLDINGS: R&I Assigns BBB Rating
---------------------------------------
Rating and Investment Information, Inc. (R&I) has assigned a
"BBB" long-term issue rating of Resona Holdings Inc. issued
under the shelf registration scheme.

The holding company of the Resona Group, Resona Holdings, Inc.
has Resona Bank Ltd., Saitama Resona Bank Ltd., The Kinki Osaka
Bank Ltd., The Nara Bank Ltd., and Resona Trust & Banking Co.,
Ltd. under its umbrella. The Resona Bank and The Nara Bank are
planning to merge on January 1, 2006. The Issuer Rating reflects
the group's overall creditworthiness and the financial structure
of the holding company. The double leverage ratio of affiliated
company shares to shareholders' equity is high at 150.7% and an
Issuer Rating of BBB, one notch lower than the Issuer Rating of
Resona Bank, has been assigned to the holding company.

The Resona Group has a wide operational base centering on Tokyo
metropolitan area (especially Saitama Prefecture) and the Kansai
area. Trailing close behind Japan's megabanks, it has about 39
trillion yen in total assets.

Aiming for rehabilitation since June 2003 under the framework of
the government's special support program for financial
institutions, the group has been making efforts to improve asset
health and cost structure by restructuring the group's
governance system and through sweeping reductions in non-
performing loans and shareholding.

At present the group is more or less on track in achieving its
goals. The bank's dependency on public funds remains large,
however, and this has been a restraining factor in terms of its
capital adequacy. In order to make further progress in credit
quality, it will be important for Resona to create a high-profit
management base by establishing a business model as a retail
bank and by making full use of its business base which it had
not been sufficiently exploited so far.

ZECOO COMPANY: Enters Bankruptcy

Teikoku Databank America.

The Company operates a franchise of Japanese style pubs named
"Toriaezu Gohei."

* Japan May Corporate Bankruptcy Cases Up 1.5% On Month
-------------------------------------------------------
Japanese corporate bankruptcies jumped 1.5 percent on month to
614 cases in May, exceeding 600 cases for the second straight
month, Dow Jones reports, citing Teikoku Databank Ltd.

Debts left behind by insolvent companies surged 72.9 percent
from the previous month to JPY584.43 billion, the agency said,
suggesting that concerns over corporate health linger as Japan's
economy remains in a soft patch.

Teikoku Databank said on-year comparisons weren't available
because of a change it made in the components of bankruptcy
cases in the survey, effective from May.

"We can't be optimistic about developments ahead" as concerns
over a slowdown in the U.S. and Chinese economies, as well as
rising crude oil and raw material prices, could hurt corporate
earnings, it said.

The sharp rise in obligations was caused by increased
bankruptcies of midsize and large firms, particularly in the
construction industry, as the government continues to scale back
public works projects, their main source of revenue, Teikoku
Databank said.

Of the bankruptcies recorded in May, 75.2 percent were recession
related, Teikoku Databank added.

INCHEON OIL: Sale Plan Revived
------------------------------
Failed Incheon Oil Refinery Co. Ltd. is reportedly reviving
plans to sell the oil refiner, just five months after the
collapse of a takeover by China's Sinochem.

An Incheon Oil official has told Reuters that the firm wants to
complete the sale before the year ends.

The official said that the interested buyer is required to
submit a letter of intent between June 20 and July 12. Potential
buyers will then be asked to conduct a due diligence of the firm
from July 25 to Aug. 12 and are expected tp hand in their tender
offers on Aug. 18.

The earlier US$669-million agreement to sell Incheon Oil, which
is under court receivership, fell through on Jan. 31 after
creditors of the debt-ridden refiner rejected a KRW680 billion
(US$668.6 million) offer from Chinese state oil trader Sinochem
Corp., hoping for a higher price.

At the moment, it was still unclear whether Sinochem would come
back with a fresh bid.

Sinochem, China's oldest oil and petrochemicals trader, wants to
become an integrated oil firm and is being pressed to grow
overseas as the country's massive domestic oil sector is
dominated by other state giants.

Inchon Oil owns a single refinery with capacity to process
275,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Located in Inchon, west of
Seoul, the refinery is geographically closer to China than its
bigger domestic rivals.


KOOKMIN BANK: Sells Treasury Stock in OTC Market
------------------------------------------------
Kookmin Bank has sold all of its treasury stock in the over-the-
counter market, Reuters reports.

The stocks, which represented an 8-percent stake in the bank,
were sold to both foreign and domestic investors.

Kookmin, South Korea's biggest bank, had put up for sale 27.4
million shares in the bank, which it bought from the government
in late 2003, to boost its capital.

The stake was valued at KRO1.3 trillion ($1.28 billion) by
Wednesday's closing price.

From June 20 to 27, KEB will run an open recruitment drive
welcoming applications from anyone over 20. Candidates will go
through prior qualification screening based on their resume
followed by three interviews and personality and aptitude tests.

SEWON TELECOM: Hopes to Name Buyer by July 20
---------------------------------------------
South Korean handset maker Sewon Telecom Co. has on Monday
opened bidding for the Company's sale, Maeil News.

The ailing firm will receive documents from prospective suitors
from July 6 and intends to sign a memorandum of understanding
with a preferred bidder on July 20.

Sewon went under court receivership in May last year due to
severe cash flow woes.

The Incheon Court allowed the Company to pick a sales manger to
carry out its sell-off program.

Officials of Sewon said that a possible acquirer will have to be
telecom related manufacturer rather than speculative funds at
home and abroad.

The Company's principal activity is the manufacture of
communication apparatus without any line connection as well as
radio and television broadcasting apparatus. GMS data modem
accounted for 37% of 2001 revenue; FAX modem, 24%;PCS terminal,
17%; TRS terminal, 4% and PDA module and MP3 player, 1% and
Others, 17%.

on behalf of the Board of Denko Industrial Corporation Berhad,
the company issued the following information:

already taken up the amount of RM40,247.44 in the Accounts

KUMPULAN GUTHRIE: Grabs US$380-Mln Loan Facility
------------------------------------------------
Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad (Guthrie), through its wholly owned
subsidiary, Guthrie International Investment (L) Ltd., informed
Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad that it has mandated DBS Bank
Berhad (DBS Bank) (the Mandated Lead Arranger) to arrange a
USD380 million Fully Underwritten Syndicated Transferable Term
Loan Facility (the Facility).

The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, Offshore
Banking Unit Labuan (HSBC) will join DBS Bank as Mandated Lead
Arranger and Underwriter for this Facility.

Guthrie has opted for the refinancing to take advantage of the
strong liquidity in the offshore debt market. Despite the
unsecured structure and the 7 years maturity profile, the
competitive interest margin of 0.55% above LIBOR (London
Interbank Offered Rate) is significantly lesser that the pricing
on its current loan.

Thus, Guthrie will benefit from the interest cost saving based
on the differential between its existing US Dollar Facilities
and this new loan. The refinancing has no impact on Guthrie's
gearing position.

Kumpulan Guthrie Group of Companies (Guthrie Group) is one of
the leading producers of crude palm oil in the world. The
Guthrie Group has plantation land bank measuring 322,354
hectares spanning Malaysia, and Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi
in Indonesia. The Group's other core business include property
development.

BAYAN TELECOMMUNICATIONS: PLDT Eyes Purchase to Boost Biz
---------------------------------------------------------
Bayan Telecommunications Inc. (BayanTel) has drawn the interest
of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT), BusinessWorld
says.

PLDT has signified its intention to acquire BayanTel, in a bid
to boost its fixed-line segment. The plan is in line with its
program to buy into local exchange carriers with provincial
assets to expand its operations.

But PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan said his Company has not
held any talks with Bayantel.

Meanwhile, First Grade Holdings analyst Astro Del Castillo is
doubtful the proposed acquisition could benefit PLDT since aside
from not being listed, BayanTel is saddled with debts and
problems.

Last week, Benpres Holdings Corporation reportedly said it will
unload its stake in BayanTel and two other subsidiaries, Manila
North Tollways Corp and Medical City, to generate at least Php3
billion.

Benpres president Angel Ong had said a local telecommunications
provider is interested in buying BayanTel. He said that BayanTel
had been in talks with PLDT but discussions took place a number
of years back.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: SEC Urged to Act on Pre-need Report
------------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been pressured
by the Senate Committee on Trade to act on the recommendations
contained in a terminal report pertaining to the embattled
College Assurance Plans Philippines Inc. (CAP), Today News says.

Sen. Mar Roxas has asked SEC to explain why it was unable to
implement the recommendations of its oversight body for the
regulator to take over the CAP management.

SEC Chairman Fe Barin said the commission will meet as soon as
possible to discuss the terminal reports. She explained the SEC
was giving members time to study the recommendations.

The commission is still awaiting CAP's comments on the oversight
body's report.

LIGHT RAIL: Ousted Workers Fight for Entitlements
-------------------------------------------------
A group of former employees of the ailing Light Rail Transit
Authority (LRTA) has pleaded the Supreme Court to reject a
petition seeking the reversal of a Court of Appeals ruling,
BusinessWorld reports.

The group lodged a petition before the Supreme Court to uphold
the lower court's decision that ordered the railway firm's
subsidiary Metro Transit Organization Inc. to reinstate and pay
them more than Php2.7 million in back wages.

The workers, led by Perfecto H. Venus Jr., claimed that they
were illegally dismissed after the LRTA decided not to renew its
contract with Metro Transit in July 2000.

In 1984, Metro Transit agreed to co-mage LRTA's Baclaran-
Monumento rail system. After five years, the LRTA acquired full
ownership of Metro.

But in 2000 the state railway firm terminated its management
contract with Metro after members of the rank-and-file union of
LRTA staged an illegal strike, seeking changes to the collective
bargaining agreements.

The striking workers were fired with the termination of the
agreement.

The group insisted the two firms should take back the workers
after the strike through a return-to-work order issued by the
labor department.

Metro and LRTA, meanwhile, claimed the dismissal was proper as
the striking employees refused to go back to work and went on
with the strike five days after Labor issued the return-to-work
order.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Big Clients May Get Cash Refund
------------------------------------------------
Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) provided an option for its big
corporate customers to get their court-mandated refund in cash
over an 18 to 63-month period, according to BusinessWorld.

Meralco was planning to offer the cash option to big customers,
instead of credits to future bills or post-dated checks, to give
the flexibility to customers that need cash in a given time.

Small industrial and commercial customers opting for credit
would be refunded over 18 months, while large clients over 63
months.

Should these customers opt for cash, they must inform Meralco of
their intention also every month, as well as meet all the
requirements for cash refund.

Meralco's commercial and industrial customers are the last to
get their refund for overbilling from 1994 to 2003, which was
ordered by the Supreme Court after it barred the electricity
retailer from computing income tax payments as part of operating
cost charged to customers.

The refund is estimated to total Php30 billion. Industrial and
commercial customers account for Php18 billion to Php20 billion.

MAYNILAD WATER: DBP to Draft New Terms for Sale
-----------------------------------------------
The Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) has been hired to
draft the terms of reprivatization of Maynilad Water Services
Inc., reports BusinessWorld.

The Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) has
tapped DBP to map out the terms of reference for the
privatization for the west zone concession.

Maynilad is owned by Benpres and its French partner, Ondeo.
MWSS will just be an interim owner of Maynilad, and the
intention is to give the concession to private players.

Meanwhile, MWSS Deputy Administrator Macra Cruz declined to
comment about whether DBP will determine if east zone
concessionaire Manila Water Co. Inc. would still be allowed to
bid for Maynilad.

Under the old pre-bid terms for privatization, no Company was
allowed to get both the east and west zone concessions.

* Fitch Says Debt Reduction May Improve RP's Credit Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
An international rating agency said that the reduction of the
Philippine's public debt over the medium term will help raise
the country's sovereign ratings.

Fitch Ratings Inc. emphasized in a recent report the need for
fiscal adjustment to put public ratios on a firm downward path
over the medium term back to 'BB' norms.

On May 26 Fitch revised its outlook on the Philippines' long-
term foreign and local currency sovereign credit ratings to
"stable" from "negative," reflecting enhanced prospects for
fiscal adjustment following the passage of the value-added tax
(VAT) law.

Further, Fitch affirmed the long-term foreign and domestic
currency rating of the country at "BB" and "BB+," respectively,
with the short-term foreign currency rating at "B".

Fitch also cited projections in the drop of the ratio of
national government debt to economic output due to the passage
of some tax measures. It said the ratio is seen to drop to 70
percent in 2005 and 67.5 percent in 2006 from 71.4 percent in
2004.

It also expects the approved tax measures to generate revenues
of Php50 billion in 2005 and Php110 billion in 2006.

The rating agency, however, expects lower revenues from the
implementation of the new VAT law.

ACCORD CUSTOMER: SGX-ST Grants Extension to Hold AGM
----------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Accord Customer Care Solutions Limited
informed the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) that further to the
Company's announcements dated April 5, 2005 and May 13, 2005,
the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (SGX-ST) has
granted a further extension to August 31, 2005 (the Extension)
to:

(a) Hold its Annual General Meeting in respect of the financial
year ended 2004 (AGM); and

(b) Announce (the Announcement) its financial statements for the
first quarter ended March 31, 2005 (1QFY05 Results).

The Extension was sought as the restatement of the Company's
consolidated audited financial statements for the financial year
ended December 31, 2004 (the FY2004 Accounts) and the 1QFY05
Results will not be finalized within the timeframe required for
the Company to release the Announcement by June 15, 2005 and
hold its AGM by June 30, 2005. In particular, the Company will
require time to:

(a) First restate the Company's consolidated audited financial
statements for the financial year ended December 31, 2003 (the
FY2003 Accounts) before it can proceed with restating the FY2004
Accounts and the finalization of the 1QFY05 Results.

This methodology is important as historical quarter-on-quarter
numbers are required as comparative information in finalizing
the accounts;

(b) Allow the external auditors time to review and finalize the
restatements of the FY2003 Accounts and the FY2004 Accounts; and

(c) Liaise with the auditors of the Company's foreign
subsidiaries so as to collate all relevant information required
for the restatement of the FY2003 Accounts and the FY2004
Accounts, and the finalization of the 1QFY05 Results.

The Company confirms that it is not aware of any information not
previously announced which, if known, will have a material
bearing on any decision made by an investor.

The Extension is conditional upon the Company obtaining approval
from the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority for the
extension of time to hold its AGM by August 31, 2005.

CHINA AVIATION (S): Court Permits Two Execs to Leave Country
------------------------------------------------------------
The Subordinate Court allowed two non-executive directors
implicated in China Aviation Oil (S) Corp. Ltd. case to leave
Singapore for an important meeting in Beijing, reports
Associated Press.

The Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the
State Council guarantee for the two officials' return.  Jia
Changbin and Li Yongji would return for their next court hearing
on June 23. The two officials quadrupled their bail to SG$1
million (US$597,0000) and SG$500,000 (US$299,000) respectively.

Mr. Jia and Mr. Li were two of the five CAO officials who are
facing insider trading, making false statements and other crime
charges linked to a loss of US$550 million for trading oil
derivatives.

CHINA AVIATION (S): Fears that BT Article May Mislead Readers
-------------------------------------------------------------
China Aviation Oil (Singapore) Corporation issued to the
Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) a clarification to the Singapore
Business Times Article and place in its proper context the
articles dated June 15, 2005 regarding the jet fuel monopoly for
the importation of aviation fuel to China.

The Company stated that the article has created a wrong
impression with the headline "CAO to lose jet-fuel market
monopoly: Gu" and with the "BT exclusive" tag line.

First, Mdm Gu Yanfei did not at anytime say those words
attributed to her in the headline.

Second, the article quoted certain remarks without setting out
the proper and full context.

In particular, Mdm Gu had prefaced her remarks with the
reference to the previous press and media coverage on the issue.
She then added that since 2000, it is public knowledge that
there has been a review in China of the deregulation of the jet
fuel market in light of China's accession to the WTO. It was in
the context of this that Mdm Gu added that from this
perspective, therefore, there is certainty of the jet market
monopoly being broken up.

Third, the headline is misleading as it may wrongly suggest that
the Company's parent may lose its entire or substantial part of
its jet fuel business. This is untrue.

Fourth, the deregulation and opening up of the jet fuel market
in China is not a new or recent development. This is clear from
the Company's Annual Report 2003, which states clearly that the
deregulation of the aviation fuel market would follow from
China's accession to the WTO in the year 2000.

The Annual Report also states that the opening up of the jet
fuel market will continue and that this will lead to more market
competition.

The Company would also like to state that in its Prospectus
issued at the time of the Company's Initial Public Offer, the
future deregulation of the jet fuel market and competition
arising therefrom because of China's admission into the WTO was
disclosed to investors.

There has also been previous press coverage on this issue. The
Singapore Business Times also ran an article in its 29 December
2004 edition on this issue.

The Company would like to state that the jet fuel business will
remain the core business of the Company. In addition, the
Company is confident that its parent company, China Aviation
Holding Company will remain the major supplier of jet fuel in
China throughout this reforming process. In addition, the
Company is of the view that such reform process will not happen
overnight and will take some time.

The Company therefore views developments on the deregulation of
the jet fuel market in China with optimism and as a challenge,
which will present more growth opportunities rather than become
a threat.
