D CLUB: Last Minute Payments Save Club from Liquidation
-------------------------------------------------------
D Club, the operator of nightclub Metro City, averted
liquidation on June 24, 2005, thanks to its manager Tony Grego,
The West Australian reports.

Mr. Grego rushed to court before the hearing was about to start
with checks amounting to AU$402,000 to pay creditors including
the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

D Club lost about AU$500,000 this year when the giant club was
forced to shut down while the Department of Racing, Gaming and
Liquor investigated its offshore ownership. Its problems started
when Metro City was the scene of a violent gangland brawl in
February, leading The West Australian to investigate the
Company's ownership.

The club resumed operations five weeks after when it satisfied
the department the new owner on its registry, Beautex Offshore,
was owned by Jopie Widjaja, an Indonesian who already had a
substantial stake in the club.

But on June 24, 2005 Delmere Holdings planned to apply to the
Supreme Court to have D Club wound up over a $200,000 debt, a
move that was also supported by the tax office, which was also
running after D Club for unpaid taxes for the past three fiscal
years.

Mr. Grego, who said the club has recovered in the past two
months, apparently saved the firm by handing lawyers for Delmere
and the ATO a check each.

EVANS & TATE: To Report Losses on Inventory Write Downs
-------------------------------------------------------
Evans & Tate Limited has provided the market with a shareholder
update for the year ending June 30, 2005.

Evans & Tate has in recent years grown its business through
market penetration, brand development and investment in
wineries, vineyards and distribution businesses which has led to
a significant inventory build up.

The Company is currently facing a challenging wine market and
has been working to overcome these challenges.

The Board of Directors on Tuesday decided to accelerate the
reduction of the Company's unallocated wine inventory (i.e. wine
not allocated to customers).

In making this decision, the Board has elected to adopt a
conservative approach to the accounting treatment of the
carrying value of its wine inventory, and believes the
acceleration of the reduction of the Company's wine inventory
will result in a once-off write-down in the value of its
inventory.

The Board expects the wine inventory write-down will be in order
of AU$8 million to AU$10 million, approximately 7% to 9% of
total inventory levels.

The exact level of the inventory write-down will depend on the
final outcome of an independent wine evaluation currently
underway.

In addition, The Board considered the carrying value of Yarra
Valley subsidiary Oakridge Vineyards Pty Ltd. Based on the
unaudited management accounts for Oakridge for the year to date,
the Board believes it is likely that a write-down of the AU$4.3
million goodwill relating to Oakridge Vineyards Pty Ltd will be
required in the current financial year.

Even though the Company's revenues and EBITDA earnings are
expected to increase for the year ending June 30, 2005, as a
result of the above write-downs and based on the Company's
unaudited management accounts for the eleven months ended May
31, 2005, the Company expects to report its first net loss since
listing of between AU$4.8 million and AU$7.5 million for the
year.

This expected loss will not restrict the Company's ability to
pay a final dividend. The Board intends to declare a final
dividend on the Company's preference shares in accordance with
their terms and declare a final dividend on the Company's
ordinary shares for the current financial year, subject to
finalization of the Company's annual audited accounts.

Evans & Tate Executive Chairman Franklin Tate said that the
Company has in place strategies to reduce inventory to more
appropriate levels.

Detailed Financial Guidance

The Company is forecasting operating revenue of AU$95 million
for the year ending June 30, 2005. This represents an increase
on last year's operating revenue of approximately 12%.

For comparison purposes, Earnings before Interest, Tax,
Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) before inventory write-
downs is anticipated to be in the range of AU$21 million to
AU$23 million for the year ending June 30, 2005, an increase of
approximately 7% to 17%.

The Company recognizes that it needs to reduce its inventory. In
the past, the Company has blended slow moving inventory with
other wines for distribution over time. However, given the
current difficult market environment and the Company's need to
reduce debt, the Board has decided to begin to reduce some
inventory immediately.

Sales of unallocated inventory are expected to be in order of
AU$8 million. The Board expects these rules to result in a once-
off write-down of AU$8 million to AU$10 million in the current
financial year.

As previously announced, the Company intends to reduce inventory
further by reducing the 2006 vintage intake, which is
anticipated to be less than the 2005 vintage. The 2005 vintage
intake was 7,000 tonnes less than the 2004 vintage intake. Given
the anticipated sales program for the 2005/2006 fiscal year, the
Company's inventories are expected to fall to AU483 million to
AU$88 million by June 30, 2006 from current levels of
approximately AU$100 million following the inventory write-down.

As part of its ongoing business planning, Evans & Tate has also
been undergoing a review of its costs and part of its planned
initiatives include the intention to reduce its packaged stock
by AU$4 million over the next 12 months and the consideration of
a sale and leaseback of the Griffith winery which the Company
expects would realize a further AU$10 million to AU$12 million
for debt reduction.

The Company will provide further updates on these initiatives as
they progress.

HENRY WALKER: Administrators Propose Deed of Company Arrangement
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Administrators of the Henry Walker Eltin Group Limited (HWE)
and its subsidiaries on Tuesday released their Report to
Creditors pursuant to Section 439A of the Corporations Act.

Administrator Scott Kershaw of McGrathNicol+Partners said the
Report informed creditors of the financial position of the
various entities, the reasons for HWE's failure and recommended
the most appropriate course of action to take in relation to the
Companies.

Mr. Kershaw said the Administrators recommended a Deed of
Company Arrangement be adopted by creditors, the basis for which
was decided in consultation with HWE's Committees of Creditors,
Financial Creditors and Bondholder representatives.

The Deed of Company Arrangement Proposal requires the support of
a simple majority of creditors and will be presented at meetings
scheduled for July 8, 2005 to be held in Darwin and Perth, with
video connections from Sydney and Auckland.

"The Deed of Company Arrangement Proposal seeks to consolidate
the assets of HWE into two distinct pools, and provides
different classes of creditors with varying rights to claim
against each pool," Mr. Kershaw said.

"The proposal will streamline the process for adjudication of
claims, reduce costs and accelerate the payment of distributions
to creditors."

Mr. Kershaw also said that the Company's asset realization
strategy was progressing well.

"The majority of HWE businesses have now been sold or are in
advanced negotiations. The sales process for the Companies'
major mining contracting businesses has commenced and initial
interest is most encouraging."

While it was unlikely there would be any return to shareholders
of HWE, it is necessary to progress the sale process before the
Administrators can form a final view on that matter.

ION LIMITED: Investors Given Chance to Get Their Money Back
-----------------------------------------------------------
A listed litigation firm is urging small investors in Ion
Limited to join a class action to recover part of the former
value of their interests in the failed autoparts maker, The
Advertiser reveals.

IMF (Australia) announced fund claims by Ion shareholders to
help recoup their losses, after administrators McGrathNicol and
Partners told shareholders they would not receive any
distribution for their shares.

The IMF case would claim recovery of loss and damages sustained
by shareholders as a result of Ion's collapse. This was "on the
basis that between October 20, 2003, and December 7, 2004 (the
date voluntary administrators were appointed), Ion engaged in
misleading or deceptive conduct and breached the continuous
disclosure provisions of the Corporations Act by failing to keep
the market fully informed".

IMF has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth and has
previously launched claims involving the collapse of other
listed companies such as Sons of Gwalia.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Raised Alarm on Data Theft
----------------------------------------------
The National Australia Bank (NAB) has warned the Federal Bureau
of Investigation (FBI) about theft of data from credit and debit
cards by hackers in the United States, reports the Bank Systems
and Technology News.

NAB, Australia's largest bank, supposedly discovered the fraud
and reported it to MasterCard and Visa in September last year.

The FBI immediately commissioned a probe after it was notified
of the data theft, and declared it a "crime scene" on June 1,
2005.

According to Australia's Treasurer Peter Costello, the FBI did
not permit organizations to disclose the fraud during the
investigation. They were only allowed public comment on Thursday
or Friday last week.

Mr. Costello admitted he and Justice Minister Chris Ellison only
became aware of the fraud through media reports this week. He
said his office was told that NAB had raised the alarm months
earlier.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Idoport Drags Bank Back to Court
----------------------------------------------------
An epic legal battle between computer systems group Idoport and
National Australia Bank is back in court, according to The
Australian.

Idoport, which had a $50 billion lawsuit against National
Australia Bank dismissed three years ago, has returned to the
New South Wales Supreme Court Monday.

John Maconochie's Idoport sued NAB and subsidiary National
Markets Group for allegedly breaching a contract over the bank's
failure to develop and market his electronic trading platform,
Ausmaq.

The case was dismissed in the NSW Supreme Court in January 2002,
when Mr. Maconochie failed to secure funds to continue the fight
after the trial costs swelled to more than $50 million. But
Idoport has since won the support of US-based hedge fund Elliott
Associates, which has a record of fighting for investor rights.

Idoport has again attempted to begin fresh proceedings against
NAB that focus on claims for payment of contractual performance
bonuses.

Idoport said the fresh proceedings relate to narrow contractual
matters vastly different to the previous matter. It says the
Company has paid costs in any matters that might overlap in the
new proceedings.

NAB said it would argue that the proceedings could not be
brought to the court until costs had been paid for all matters
in the previous case.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: To Fly Sydney-Beijing Route in 2006
---------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways Limited has revealed it would begin servicing
flights to Beijing from Sydney and vice versa early next year,
Asia Pulse reports.

The national flag carrier said it will fly to Beijing three
times a week starting January 9, 2006, and hopes to increase
flight frequency to once a day within the next two years.

Qantas already flies thrice weekly between Sydney and Shanghai.
It expects to add a fourth flight and to be able to offer a
daily service by 2007.

The airline decided to expand its operations in China, since the
travel between the Asian country and Australia has increased
more than 40 percent in the past three years and is expected to
grow 20 percent in the next 12 months.

Qantas said it will use Airbus A330-300 jets on the China bound
routes.

CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Temasek To Acquire 5.1% Stake
-------------------------------------------------
Singapore's Temasek Holdings has agreed to pay US$1.4 billion
(HK$10.9 billion) for a 5.1 percent stake in China Construction
Bank, Xinhua reports, citing the Caijing magazine.

The financial magazine did not disclose its source for the
report, though it said an agreement was signed late Friday.

The lender plans to sell 15 percent of its shares to raise about
US$5 billion before listing on the Hong Kong exchange later this
year.

In late 2003, the government gave China Construction Bank a
US$22.5 billion bailout, part of a vast effort to revamp the
country's financial system.

of the Company do not agree with the results of such

INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL: FY/2004 Net Income Dives 8%
------------------------------------------------------
The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) posted a net
income of CNY2.3 billion (HK$2.16 billion) in 2004 from CNY2.5
billion a year earlier, The Standard reports.

New lending increased 9.2 percent last year to CNY3.7 trillion,
versus a 13 percent rise in fresh lending the previous year.

Analysts said ICBC's earnings slump resulted from mounting
restructuring costs, including branch closures, higher salaries
and costly outside consultancy work - all meant to prepare for
an initial public offering overseas next year.

Investors, though, are likely to remain concerned that ICBC may
have still more bad loans lurking on its balance sheet. ``There
are probably more NPLs there that need to be cleaned up before
they can complete their IPO,'' said Ivan Chung, credit ratings
managing director at Xinhua Finance.

Mr. Chung added ICBC ``may also need a further US$40 billion to
US$50 billion'' capital injection prior to an overseas stock
sale, in order to boost its capital adequacy ratio to
international standards.

The calculation of the basic loss per share is based on the net
loss for the year of approximately HK$19,295,000 (2004:
HK$35,552,000) and the weighted average number of shares of
192,793,091 (2004: 831,447) in issue during the year.

The weighted average number of shares for the year ended March
31, 2004 for the purpose of basic losses per share has been
adjusted for the share consolidation of every 100 ordinary
shares of HK$0.01 each into one share of HK$1.00 each, which
become effective on April 22, 2004.

The computation of diluted loss per share did not assume the
exercise of the subsidiary's outstanding share options existed
during the year ended March 31, 2005 since their existence would
reduce loss per share. For the year ended March 31, 2004, no
diluted loss per share has been presented as there were no
options in issue.

MAN HON: Fined $320K by SFC
---------------------------
The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) has reprimanded Man
Hon Yeung Securities Limited (MHYSL) and its responsible
officer, Mr. Man Hon Yeung. MHYSL has also been fined $320,000.

MHYSL failed to maintain the required liquid capital on 32
occasions between September 2003 and February 2004, thereby
breaching section 6 of the Securities and Futures (Financial
Resources) Rules (FRR).  The breaches were caused by MHYSL's
margin lending to its clients for IPO subscriptions and over-
trading of its margin clients.  MHYSL's accounting staff were
unfamiliar with the FRR requirements and failed to include
MHYSL's short-term bank loans in its FRR computation.

At all material times, Man was a responsible officer of MHYSL
responsible for the general management of MHYSL.  He bears
primary responsibility for MHYSL's failures.

In deciding on the penalty, the SFC has taken into account the
Disciplinary Fining Guidelines (Note 2) and all the
circumstances of the case including the following:

The breaches were unintentional and resulted from the
inexperience of MHYSL's accounting staff;

MHYSL volunteered to provide the SFC with the details of its
liquid capital deficiencies;

Man immediately injected sufficient liquid capital into MHYSL as
soon as he was informed by the SFC of the FRR deficiencies; and

MHYSL and Man co-operated with SFC's investigation and frankly
admitted their responsibilities.

Mr. Alan Linning, SFC's Executive Director of Enforcement, said:
"This case is a good example of why it is important for both the
management and the accounting staff of licensed corporations to
have a good grasp of the FRR requirements.  MHYSL's liquid
capital deficiencies might have been avoided had Man and his
subordinates paid proper heed to the relevant legislation and
SFC circulars regarding FRR requirements."

"FRR compliance is vital to ensuring that a licensed corporation
is adequately capitalized and can therefore meet its obligations
to clients, other market participants and creditors.  This is
essential to the stability of the industry as a whole," Mr.
Linning added.

This is a press release.

the net loss for the year of approximately HK$8,365,000(2004:
HK$10,788,000) and the weighted-average number of 793,972,603

Diluted loss per share is not presented as there were no
dilutive potential ordinary shares during the year. The
computation of diluted loss per share for the year ended March

outstanding share options existed during that year since their
exercise would reduce loss per share in that year.

The directors do not recommend the payment of a dividend.

BANK DANAMON: Moody's Ups Financial Strength Rating to D-
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has raised Bank Danamon Indonesia's
(BDI) bank financial strength rating (BFSR) from E+ to D-. The
revised rating carries a stable outlook. This rating action
concludes a review initiated on April 11, 2005, to consider the
bank's improving financial performance.

The higher BFSR captures BDI's improved, albeit modest financial
fundamentals under major shareholder Asia Financial Indonesia.
In particular, the bank's positive economic solvency and
earnings recovery have positioned it at the current rating
range.

Further ratings upgrades will depend on the sustainability and
strength of recurring earnings over the next 12 months. At the
same time, problem loans will have to stay at current or lower
levels, despite the rapid loan growth in new niche segments,
which comprise low-income consumers and the self-employed.

The debt and deposit ratings remain underpinned by expected
support from major shareholder, in particular, Temasek Holdings
of Singapore (rated Aaa). Moody's has a positive view on the
backing of a financially strong and reputable shareholder - it
provides greater comfort of expected support in light of BDI's
position as the fifth largest bank in the system and hence,
relatively lower systemic importance.

As the fifth largest bank, BDI has a 5% share of the deposit
market. As of March 2005, it had assets of IDR60 trillion. The
bank has an established brand name in the consumer market,
relatively healthy financial fundamentals and a professional
management team. As of March 31, 2005, the Asia Financial
Indonesia consortium (comprising Temasek Holdings with 85% and
Deutsche Bank 15%) held a 65.76% stake in the bank.

Since new management entered BDI in June 2003, they have honed
the bank's strategy and are redefining its competitive position
in the banking landscape. While the bank will remain a bank for
consumers as well as small and medium sized enterprises, it is
expanding into the mass-market segments, including the self-
employed and consumer mass market. To help it in these areas, it
acquired a 75% stake in Adira Finance for IDR850 billion in cash
in April 2004.

The following rating was raised:

BFSR to D- from E+. The outlook is stable.

The following ratings were unaffected:

Subordinated debt of B2. The outlook is positive; and

Long-term/short-term deposit of B3/Not Prime. The long-term
rating carries a positive outlook and short-term stable.

PERTAMINA: Boosts Oil Imports by 42%
------------------------------------
State-controlled PT Pertamina is expected to increase its oil
imports to 10.73 million barrels this month (a 42% increase),
Star News reports.

The oil & gas firm is able to increase its oil imports after
receiving almost IDR10 trillion in fuel subsidies from the
Indonesian government.

Pertamina had to reduce its oil imports to 250,000 barrels per
day this month, compared to almost 400,000 barrels per day in
March, due to cash flow problems caused by the late disbursement
of fuel subsidies from the government and increasing global oil
prices. It had to cancel shipments for two 92-octane cargoes as
suppliers could not deliver on time.

The oil and gas firm must import oil from other countries, as
its refineries do not produce enough oil to meet national
demand.

PERTAMINA: Delays VAT Inclusion on Aviation Fuel
------------------------------------------------
State-owned oil & Gas firm PT Pertamina has chosen to postpone
the imposition of value-added tax (VAT) on aviation fuel (avtur)
used by airlines, reports Asia Pulse.

According to the Company's Marketing & Commercial Director Ari
H. Sumarno, they decided not to impose the VAT on the scheduled
July 1 date for several reasons, among which was to encourage
airlines abroad to add more routes to Indonesia, and to boost
the country's airline business.

He further added that the delay in the VAT imposition would
benefit Pertamina, as they expect an increase in foreign flights
into the country, which would increase sales of avtur.

Director General of Taxation Hadi Poernomo said that if the
government succeeds in abolishing the 10% VAT on avtur, it would
result in state losses of IDR1 trillion.


SEMEN GRESIK: Pays Out IDR182.2-Bln Dividends
---------------------------------------------
State-run cement maker PT Semen Gresik got approval from
shareholders to allot IDR182.2 billion as dividends, which
accounts for 35% of its 2004 IDR521 billion net profit, reports
the Jakarta Post.

According to Semen Gresik's President Director Satrio, the
Company cannot provide a bigger dividend than that
(IDR307.18/share) to its shareholders as it still needs finances
for future plans, such as allocating some of its profits to pay
bonds amounting to IDR447 billion, which are due next year.

Added to that is an outstanding IDR 125 billion debt by
subsidiary PT Semen Tonasa to the government, along with plans
to build a plant in central Java, which would cost IDR3.4
trillion, and would take up to four years to build.

The firm had earlier predicted a cement shortage by 2007, due to
the increased demand for cement to be used in government
infrastructure projects, and has estimated that investment for
such projects would go beyond USD150 billion in five years'
time.

At present, Semen Gresik produces 44% of the national supply for
cement. It is operating at full capacity of around 6.9 million
tons. But with chnges to some of its plants, the Company may
produce up to 7.5 million tons of cement by the end of the year.

TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA: May Miss Deadline to Submit Report
------------------------------------------------------------
State telecommunications firm PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia said
that it may not be able to meet the June 30 deadline to submit
its 2004 earnings report to the U.S. Securities & Exchange
Commission (SEC), Dow Jones reports.

This is the second time that the Company has been unable to
submit its report to the U.S. SEC, as in 2003 it could not
submit its 2002 earnings report, since its auditor was not
recognized by the commission.

According to the Company, its auditor KPMG has not completed its
audit of its financial statements, which would present its
earnings based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
Spokeswoman for the Company, Dina Arifani, said that they expect
the audit to be completed early next month.

She added that there are no accounting problems in the Company's
2004 earnings report, and they expect the U.S. SEC to extend its
deadline for submission to July 15, 2005.

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia is 51.2% owned by the Indonesian
government.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Apologizes to Shareholders for Safety Issues
------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Japan Airlines Corporation apologized to 2,600
shareholders at a meeting in Tokyo in the wake of a recent
series of safety problems, Kyodo News reports.

"Safety is the basis on which an airline operates and it is also
our duty to society," JAL President Toshiyuki Shimmachi said in
apologizing for recent events that included nose wheels coming
off a passenger jet and pilots failing to follow the orders of
air traffic controllers.

JAL has been under severe scrutiny by local media after a string
of operational gaffes and safety breaches that in March prompted
the ministry to issue it with a business improvement order.

For the year ended in March, JAL said its net profit totaled
JPY30.1 billion (USD$284.9 million) on sales of JPY2.13 trillion
(USD$20.2 billion). It logged a group net loss of JPY88.62
billion (USD$839.1 million) in the year-earlier period.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Incurs FY/2004 JPY88.1-Bln Net Loss
----------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation posted an unconsolidated
net loss of JPY88.1 billion in the fiscal year ended March 31,
2005, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reports.

"Although the Company enjoyed brisk sales in the Middle East,
Oceania and elsewhere outside Japan, domestic sales of 4-ton and
larger trucks plummeted more than 30 percent in the wake of the
recalls," the report said.

Last year, Fuso recalled more than 850,000 vehicles to fix
defects dating back to 1971.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) transferred its remaining 20
percent state in Fuso to DaimlerChrysler earlier this year, and
reportedly paid the U.S.-German automaker an estimated JPY20-30
billion in cash.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Concept Car Snags Industrial Design Award
------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) announced on June 28 its
E-boost concept vehicle was awarded the 2005 Industrial Design
Excellence Awards (IDEA) Gold Award in the category of Design
Explorations. Presented for the last 25 years by the Industrial
Design Society of America (IDSA), this year's IDEA competition
is prominently featured on the cover of BusinessWeek and on
www.businessweek.com with more images, additional information
and an interactive slide show that includes Mitsubishi Motors'
Gold Award-winning E-boost concept.

"It's a great honor to be recognized by IDSA and the premier
designers in the country," said Dan Sims, general manager of
Mitsubishi Research and Design Center in Cypress, Calif. "It's
not often that a concept car design makes it to production, and
we're extremely pleased that the all-new 2006 Eclipse sport
coupe resembles the E-boost so closely."

Mitsubishi's E-boost concept, along with the manufacturer's
Sport Truck Concept, also are on display at the Pasadena Museum
of California Art in the California Design Biennial exhibition,
taking place through August 28 (www.pmcaonline.org). The
exhibition pays tribute to the unique history and experimental
design produced in California today and features displays in the
categories of consumer products, transportation, fashion,
furniture and graphic design.

The Mitsubishi E-boost concept car introduces a new direction
for sports car design, demonstrating the possibilities for
expanded performance hybrid systems of the future. E-boost
combines the look and performance of an exotic car with sport-
coupe fuel efficiency. Many of the design innovations in the E-
boost are found in its mechanics with the electric motor also
doubling as a performance-enhancing device. The car's evocative
appearance and soft, athletic lines are a unique departure from
the current automotive trend toward heavy, sharp, boxy forms.
The exterior color features a specially developed pigment that
appears to glow from within to create the effect of molten
metal, while the interior styling is forward thinking with a
clean, uncluttered instrument panel centered around an LCD
screen.

The all-new, two-door 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse sport coupe went
on sale at the end of May 2005 and is the first of three new
products MMNA will introduce in the next 12 months. Designed to
combine exotic styling and performance with the comfort and
utility of a daily driver, the fourth generation Eclipse
exhibits an impressive power range, outstanding handling, room
for four, available options like the 650-watt Rockford Fosgate
stereo system, and luxury amenities without sacrificing the
incredible value that the Eclipse name has come to represent.

The Eclipse GS features a 162-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder
engine with Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing and lift
Electronic Control (MIVEC) technology and a five-speed manual
transmission or four-speed Sportronic(TM) automatic. The Eclipse
GT sports a 263-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 MIVEC engine and a six-
speed manual transmission or five-speed Sportronic(TM)
automatic.

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc., (MMNA) is responsible for
all manufacturing, finance, sales, marketing, research and
development operations of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation in the
United States and Canada. Mitsubishi Motors sells coupes,
convertibles, sedans and sport utility vehicles through a

DOOSAN HEAVY: Completes Construction of Evaporator in Libya
-----------------------------------------------------------
Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction has concluded the fresh
water plant project it acquired from Libya's General Electricity
Company, relates The Korea Times.

The project is the first endeavor of South Korea to export
desalination facilities to an African country.

Doosan constructed an evaporator for desalination facilities in
Libya that will supply fresh water to an industrial and
residential belt in the African country.

The evaporator is a key element of the desalination plant. The
plant is expected to produce 2,500 tons of desalinized water at
a full daily capacity.  It would play a key role in resolving
the water shortage faced by the area.

The method used in manufacturing the facility is multieffect
distillation, which produces fresh water by condensing vapor.

"We expect orders worth over $5 billion to be placed by African
countries for the MED facilities by 2010, the Company said in a
release. "The MED method costs less than other methods and is
more efficient.

Doosan set up a branch office in Tripoli last year to brace for
the emerging market.  It is considered one of the most active
players in the African desalination market.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: To Increase Output Despite WTO Ruling
----------------------------------------------------------
The World Trade Organization will not stop Hynix Semiconductor
Inc. from raising its chip output abroad, Manila Bulletin
reports.

According to Jay Kim, an analyst at Hyundai Securities, the WTO
ruling will not have much impact on Hynix.  But initially, the
sentiment could be bad and investors could be scared about
potential implications that the conflict will continue.

The WTO decision entails countervailing duties totaling 44
percent on DRAM (dynamic random access memory) chips made by
Hynix can remain in place.

A Hynix spokesman said they don't expect much impact from the
ruling but the Company plans to make the best use of overseas
production facilities in the United States, Taiwan and China to
cover any damages.

The U.S. accused South Korea of violating WTO regulations on its
bail out of Hynix. Korean creditors have, however, denied
government involvement in the bailout of Hynix Semiconductor.

PAN OCEAN: IPO Proceeds Could Boost Fleet
-----------------------------------------
STX Pan Ocean Co. Ltd. is aiming for an initial public offering
(IPO) to raise up to $455 million next month, Reuters reports.

The Company will price its shares between SG$0.96 and SG$1.27
and plans to issue 600 million shares.  If the shares are priced
at the top end of the range, the IPO will be valued at seven
times the Company's 2004 earnings, which analysts say is rich
compared with other shipping firms. Proceeds for the IPO will be
used to buy new ships as well as replacement ships to boost its
fleet.

The possible share offering is considered the second biggest in
Singapore this year.  The IPO comes amid increasing investor
worries that the shipping industry's economic cycle is
approaching its peak.

On Tuesday, Pan Ocean said China's growth puts it in a favorable
position.  With its growth, China would increase its need for
raw materials such as iron ore and coal.  The Company is the
biggest in South Korea's dry bulk sector in terms of tonnage of
cargo.

STX, ranked among the top 10 in the world in terms of tonnage
capacity of its owned dry bulk fleet, started out as Pan Ocean
Bulk Carriers Ltd. in 1966.

Pan Ocean went into receivership in 1993 when it failed to meet
its debt obligations after emerging with several other shipping
firms.  When STX Corp. bought a 67 percent stake in the firm for
about KRW450 billion last November, the Company emerged from a
court-approved reorganization.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Senator Wants SEC to Take Over Firm
------------------------------------------------------
The chairman of the Senate trade and commerce committee is
urging the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to take over
the ailing College Assurance Plans (Philippines) Inc. (CAP) for
the benefit of the pre-need firm's planholders, BusinessWorld
reports.

Sen. Manuel A. Roxas II said he is dismayed over the corporate
watchdog's failure to make CAP and Pacific Plans Inc. meet their
obligations to planholders.

"The SEC, which is the entity that is empowered to make the
judgment, must step up its role. We might disagree or agree but
it has come to a point where [they] must decide," Se. Roxas said
in a statement.

Meanwhile, SEC commission secretary Gerard Lukban welcomed a
proposal by lawmakers to give the regulator more powers, in a
bid to boost its enforcement efforts.

"We welcome the proposal because that would enable the SEC to
act like the SEC of the United States, which could prosecute
firms or individuals immediately. In our case, the rules are not
clearly defined so the SEC's compliance and enforcement

pending cases," Mr. Lukban said.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Chief Says SEC Report Inaccurate
---------------------------------------------------
The president and chief executive officer of the beleaguered
College Assurance Plans (Philippines) Inc. (CAP) said the report
made by the third oversight committee of the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) on the pre-need firm's financial
health is inaccurate, says BusinessWorld.

Enrique Sobrepena said the report may be 30-40 percent
inaccurate and claimed that the ones working on the report are
inexperienced.

The decision, he added, was not also made properly as they were
not given enough opportunity to correct some of the
"disinformation" which may have been churned out in the report.

He said the recommendation of the third oversight report was
"very simple" and was done without proper study of the business,
especially on the matter of the determination of actuarial
reserve liabilities (ARL).

Mr. Sobrepena said some of the remaining assets of CAP may be
used as collateral in order to procure loans to fund liabilities
to planholders. He said the Company is in the process of paying
off tuition liabilities.

However, Committee Chairman, Sen. Manuel A. Roxas, said he does
not see CAP's trust fund will meet the Company's liabilities at
present and in the future. CAP's reserve liabilities at present
stood at Php31 billion, while its trust fund is only Php4.7
billion.

Four commissioners out of five, including him and SEC Chairman
Fe Barin, voted to defer the implementation of the third
oversight committee recommendations, asking CAP for more
information and documents.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Sees More Losses in 2005 on Weak Sales
-------------------------------------------------------
Manila Electric Company (Meralco) said it will be in the red
again this year if sales remain flat for the rest of the year,
according to The Manila Bulletin.

The power distributor, which booked a Php1.7-billion net loss in
the first quarter, said losses are expected to continue if the
negative sales trend will remain. Meralco reported an average
drop of 0.2% in sales for the first five months due to the
slowdown in consumption brought about by the weak economy.

Last year, the utility firm logged a net loss of Php2.61
billion, as against a net profit of Php1.27 billion in 2003. The
2004 loss is attributed to provisions for a stalled rate hike.

Based on current sales, Meralco would lose around Php500 million
a month in operating income. Taking into account the tax impact,
the net effect on Meralco's bottom line would be Php340 million
a month.

Meralco Chairman Manuel Lopez disclosed during the firm's annual
stockholders meeting Tuesday that Meralco has suffered a 0.2
percent on-year contraction in sales during the first five
months due to slowing business activity as a result of rising
interest rates.

Mr. Lopez said that electricity sales rose 0.6 percent on year
for May alone, but the rise wasn't not enough to offset the 1.6
percent on-year contraction experienced in April.

Total electricity sold by Meralco in the first three months was
flat at 5.588 billion kilowatt-hours from 5.589 billion kWh in
the year-ago period.

Lopez said the Company has seen a slowdown in residential
consumption, possibly due to the rising cost of power.

NATIONAL BANK: Confirms Contents of News Article
------------------------------------------------
The Philippine National Bank (PNB) issued this announcement in
reference to the news article entitled "Lucio Tan to bid for
gov't shares in PNB" published in the June 28, 2005 issue of the
Philippine Daily Inquirer (Internet Edition).

The article reported in part that:

"TOBACCO tycoon Lucio Tan has notified the government that he
will exercise his right of first offer on the government's
shares in Philippine National Bank (PNB), the Department of
Finance said Monday.

"`By exercising its right of first offer and participating in
the bidding, the Lucio Tan group has the right to match the
highest bid price received from third parties in the public
auction to be conducted ... this August,' a finance department
statement said.

"`Should the Lucio Tan group exercise its right to match, [the
group] shall reimburse the due diligence expenses incurred by
the two highest qualified bidders, up to a maximum of 25 million
pesos each,' it added.

"The announcement of the Tan group's intention to exercise its
right of first offer came after the board of Philippine Deposit
Insurance Corp. (PDIC) and the Privatization Council, on
recommendation of ING Bank NV, the government's financial
adviser for the share sale, set the floor price at 43 pesos a
share."

Philippine National Bank (PNB), in a letter to the Exchange
dated June 28, 2005, stated that:

NATIONAL POWER: Two of Three Calaca Plant Bidders Back Out
----------------------------------------------------------
The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM)
has cancelled the auction of one of National Power Corporation's
(Napocor) power facilities after two of three potential
investors dropped their bids, according to BusinessWorld.

The two qualified bidders decided to back out after learning
that the Napocor plant lacked a sure market for its electricity.

The 600-megawatt coal-fired Calaca facility, which was put up
for auction by state-run PSALM on behalf of Napocor, failed to
secure transition supply contracts that would have assured
bidders of a committed market for the plant's output.

Under auction rules, the government did not accept the bid
documents of the third and sole bidder, First Gen Luzon Power
Corp. Another auction would probably be scheduled in September,
provided the plant could ink transition supply contracts.

PSALM said the two bidders that withdrew Tuesday may join the
next bidding.

PACIFIC PLANS: PEPC Questions Sale of Napocor Bonds
---------------------------------------------------
An advocacy group wants to hear an explanation for Pacific Plans
Inc.'s sale of its National Power Corporation (Napocor) zero-
rated coupon bonds to the scandal-hit Lifetime Plans Inc.,
BusinessWorld reports.

The Parents Enabling Parents Coalition (PEPC) believed the sale
of part of the Napocor bonds at 66 percent of face value was
negotiated sale. It claimed the sale could possibly be a case of
self-dealing as there were no such transactions recorder by
Bloomberg between Dec. 10, 2002 and June 23, 2005.

Pacific Plans bought the bonds on Dec. 27, 2002 from Goldman
Sachs at 52.3 percent of face value, or US$146.43 million of the
face value of Php280 million. It was bought partly from a
US$76.4-million leverage loan from the Rizal Commercial Banking
Corp. (RCBC) Treasury, due 2007.

The US$190.9 million of the face value of the said bonds were
reportedly transferred to Lifetime. Of the US$89.1 million worth
of bonds at face value left to Pacific, US$37.4 million were
sold at 66 percent of face value, in order to finance its loan
to RCBC Treasury.

Pacific President and Chief Executive Ernesto Garcia confirmed
the contract party was indeed Lifetime, and they accepted the 66
percent of face value offer as it was above market value.

Meanwhile, Sen. Sergio R. Osmena III said the allegation remains
to be proven, as information is still lacking. Furthermore, he
said he wants to see the contract of sale and ask Pacific to
justify the pricing.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: Court to Decide CITIC Due Diligence July 4
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Central Bankruptcy Court will rule on July 4 as to whether
CITIC Resources Holdings can conduct due diligence on Thai
Petrochemical Industry Public Company Limited (TPI), The Nation
says.

TPI founder, Prachai Leophairatana and other minority
shareholders, who own about 25 percent of TPI shares have
entered into a memorandum of understanding with CITIC in a bid
to repay $2.7 billion of debt to creditors and regain control.

CITIC will conduct a due diligence on TPI as part of Mr.
Prachai's move to overthrow the current rehabilitation plan of
the Company.  CITIC needs to know TPI's finances before it buys
a stake of the debt-ridden Company.

TPI's plan administrators withheld TPI's financial information.
Mr. Prachai then filed a petition to the Central Bankruptcy
Court to allow his potential partner access to the Company's
financial information.

"After considering the request, the court will announce the
verdict on July 4," said Kamol Teeravet-ponkul, a Central
Bankruptcy Court judge, after a hearing to decide TPI's fate was
briefly suspended. He said the court needs time to study the
details of CITIC's offer.

According to Mr. Kamol, TPI's plan administrator has continued
providing information on the Company's expenditure and debt
restructuring. But it could only provide that much information
to Mr. Prachai.

Information regarding business contracts or business secrets, to
other firms particularly now, after the Company signed a deal on
June 1 to sell 17.55 billion new and existing shares at THB3.30
per share to a group of government-related investors led by PTT
Plc. would not be disclosed. The plan administrator doesn't know
whether PTT will change the deal or not if they provide such
information.
