ADSTEAM MARINE: Gov't Provides AU$3 Mln to Enable Salvage Biz
-------------------------------------------------------------
Adsteam Marine announced that following a competitive lender,
the Australian Government has granted United Salvage, a
subsidiary of Adsteam Marine, up to AU$3 million, to continue to
maintain its salvage and emergency towage capability in
Australian coastal waters for up to a nine-month period.

This new funding agreement takes effect from July 1, 2005. This
funding package is to enable Adsteam Marine to maintain its
salvage and emergency towage capability until a longer term and
financially sustainable arrangement can be put in place.

Adsteam will continue to work closely with the Australian
Government to develop a longer term solution to ensure national
salvage and emergency towage capability.

This funding arrangement provides partial support for the costs
of Adsteam continuing its maintenance of salvage and emergency
towage capability and reduces the volatility in earnings from
its salvage business.

AINSWORTH GAME: Sees Hefty Losses for 2005 Financial Year
---------------------------------------------------------
Ainsworth Game technology Limited (AGT) on June 30 announced
that it expects to report an after tax loss of approximately
AU$11 million for the financial year ended June 30, 2005.
Revenue for the period represented an increase of approximately
31% compared to the corresponding period in 2004.

Commenting on the anticipated results, the Company's major
shareholder and Executive Chairman, Mr. Len Ainsworth, said that
a number of factors had contributed to the revised outlook,
including a lower than expected sales volume to customers in
Europe, South Africa and Australia. In addition, a substantial
increase of AU$3.5 million in overhead costs was incurred during
the second half of the financial year, as the Company prepares
to meet continuing growth opportunities. Principal areas of cost
increases were R&D expenditure, costs associated with applying
for licenses in new markets, and increased staff costs
associated with rapid expansion in overseas markets.

Further, Mr. Ainsworth said a number of one-off expenses,
totaling approximately AU45 million, are included in the
expected loss. These one-off expenses include costs incurred in
the discontinued merger with the Unicum Group, restructuring
costs incurred in Europe and the U.K. and costs associated with
a number of legal matters.

The Board of AGT announced that it would pursue a restructuring
and cost rationalization program to return the Company to
profitability and position the Company to take advantage of
current and new opportunities in emerging markets in the 2006
financial year.

Mr. Ainsworth said "AGT'c Chief Executive Officer, Mr. David
Creary, appointed in February 2005, has traveled extensively in
recent months, undertaking a thorough review of operations
around the world and meeting with AGT's customers and suppliers.
Arising from this review, Mr. Creary has made a number of
rationalization and restructuring recommendations which have
been accepted by the Board".

Mr. Creary said "The restructuring program will ensure costs of
production and overheads are reduced with a new focus given to
product strategy and the need to deliver quality products into
areas offering the greatest prospects for growth, including the
Americas, Russia, Macau and Australia. The cost reduction
program is expected to directly impact the bottom line in the
2006 financial year".

Mr. Creary and Mr. Ainsworth recently returned from the Asian
Gaming Expo in Macau, where the Company's products were on
display to representatives of many of the new casinos now under
development there. Mr. Creary said that Macau was now the
world's most exciting new gaming market, where revenue last year
in that market grew 44% to US$5 billon.

In addition, Mr. Creary expects the Americas to continue to
provide significant new growth opportunities with AGT expecting
to gain additional licenses in the United States over the next
twelve months.

Mr. Creary, following meetings with representatives of the
Unuicum Group, its distributor in Russia, said that the Company
has received initial new orders from Unicum, which should be
delivered in the first quarter of the 2006 financial year.

"AGT is a Company with good products and outstanding growth
prospects both domestically and internationally," Mr. Creary
said.

"However, there is further work to be done in restoring
profitability through the next year, but I have every confidence
in the ability of AGT to build on its existing base and position
the Company well for future growth."

Mr. Ainsworth added that the Board is fully confident that the
new CEO has both the leadership strengths and ability to
reorganize the business on a sound commercial basis and return
the Company to profitability in the short to medium term.

The Board has agreed with Mr. Ainsworth that he will continue as
the executive Chairman of the Company, providing both financial
support and his vast experience and know-how in gaming to the
Company. The Chairman has also indicated that as the Company
delivers on its profit improvement plans, a succession process
for the Executive Chairman would be developed.

In response to the expected trading loss, the AGT Board has also
announced an intention to enhance the Company's capital
structure to provide it with flexibility to pursue its
continuing growth plans. It is proposed that the Company raise
approximately AU$12 million under a rights issue with Mr.
Ainsworth undertaking to underwrite the entire AU$12 million
issue as an indication of his confidence in the Company. The
issue will provide all Shareholders with the opportunity to
participate. The net proceeds from the issue would be used to
reduce the Company's current indebtedness under the existing
loan facilities provided by Mr. Ainsworth.

Further information will be provided to AGT's shareholders once
terms of the proposed rights issue have been finalized.

EDCOM REAL: Former Liquidator Sentenced for Fraud
-------------------------------------------------
Mr. John Henderson Jackson, a former Adelaide-based liquidator,
was on Friday sentenced in the District Court in Adelaide on
charges arising from an investigation by the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) into his conduct as
a receiver and manager of Edcom Real Estate Pty Ltd (Edcom).

Mr. Jackson was sentenced to 3 years jail, wholly suspended upon
entering into a recognizance in the amount of $2000 to be of
good behavior for a period of 2 years commencing on 1 July 2005.

On five occasions between December 1999 and April 2000, Mr.
Jackson fraudulently converted money belonging to Edcom totaling
$26,190 by transferring it to his personal bank accounts and
then using this money for his own benefit.

"Liquidators have important responsibilities towards employees
and creditors and must conduct the administration of companies
under their control with utmost good faith. ASIC will not
hesitate to pursue those who misuse their positions of trust for
their own benefit," ASIC's Deputy Executive Director of
Enforcement, Mr. Allen Turton said.

"This concludes ASIC's actions against Mr Jackson who resigned
his positions as both an official and registered liquidator on
15 January 2001 after ASIC commenced its investigation," Mr.
Turton added.

The charges were prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of
Public Prosecutions.

HENRY WALKER: Ready to Leave Fraser's Decline Project
-----------------------------------------------------
New Zealand goldminer OceanaGold and McGrathNicol+Partners,
Administrators of Australian mining contractor Henry Walker
Eltin Group, have on Friday announced the completion of
arrangements for HWE's exit from the Fraser's Decline project of
OceanaGold's Macraes gold field, following the appointment of
Administrators to HWE in February of this year.

Those arrangements include the purchase of HWE's equipment and
materials, to be used when the underground project resumes with
a replacement contractor, and the settlement of all outstanding
claims between the two companies.

OceanaGold's Chief Operating Officer, Albert Brantley, said the
settlement is a favorable outcome of contingency plans put in
place by OceanaGold when the contractor announced efforts to
recapitalize in difficult circumstances late last year.
OceanaGold has used the time since tunneling stopped in early
February to optimize decline design and to continue a programme
of drilling in the area. The recent drilling indicates the
estimated resource for the Fraser's Underground Mine Development
exceeds original expectations.

Mr. Kerryn Downey, Managing Partner of McGrathNicol+Partners in
Auckland said that he was pleased that the parties were able to
agree on a solution which addresses all the issues for both
parties without the cost and delays associated with legal
proceedings.

Mr. Downey also said that the Administrators in Australia are
well advanced in their plans to restructure and recapitalize the
HWE business in Australia and New Zealand. Macquarie Bank has
been retained to advise on this process. In New Zealand, HWE
continues to operate the Rotowaro Coal mine in Huntly. The
development of an underground mine in Waii and an earthworks
project in Meremere.

MULTIPLEX: Updates Profit Guidance for FY05, FY06
-------------------------------------------------
Multiplex announced a further update to the FY05 and FY06 profit
guidance released to market on May 30, 2005.

The May guidance outlined a forecast FY05 Aggregated Group
Profit after tax and pre stapled eliminations of US$170 million.
This estimate was qualified by several ongoing opportunities and
risks including assumptions about development sales for June
2005. An indicative range for FY06 Aggregated Group Profit after
tax and pre stapled eliminations of AU$200 to AU$215 million was
also provided.

Two development sale transactions were contracted by June 30,
2005 but there remains uncertainty as to the timing of
satisfaction of certain conditions and therefore uncertainty as
to the quantum of profit that can be recognized in FY05. Further
transaction details are anticipated to be provided on or before
the release of the Group's Annual Results on August 18, 2005.

Uncertainty in relation to the timing of the recognition of the
profit for these transactions may result in profit that would
otherwise have been recognized in the FY05 financial year being
deferred until FY06, assuming both transactions complete in
accordance with their terms.

On the basis that profit on neither transaction is recognized in
FY, the FY05 Aggregated Group Profit after tax and pre stapled
eliminations would be approximately AU$20 million lower than
previously forecast with a corresponding AU$20 million increase
in the forecast Aggregated Group Profit previously advised for
FY06 (i.e. an increase to AU$220 million to AU$235 million).

Estimated distribution for the six months ending June 30, 2005
remains unchanged, equating to 14 cents per security.

INVESTMENT ACQUISITION AND DISPOSAL SETTLEMENT UPDATE

On March 24, 2004, Multiplex Group announced the acquisition of
six industrial properties which included the deferred settlement
of an AU$10 million parcel of land at Rosehill, NSW. This land
had a prescribed settlement date of July 1, 2006. However,
settlement occured 12 months ahead of schedule, on June 30,
2005. As a consequence of the early settlement, the purchase
price was discounted by almost 6 percent to AU$9.4 million. As
advised on September 20, 2004, Multiplex Property Trust on-sold
two of the six industrial properties for NZ$26.2 million,
located in the Auckland suburb of Penrose. The properties
settled on June 30, 2005.

On May 2, 2005, Multiplex Group announced various property
divestments and acquisitions. The sale of 134 Reed Street,
Canberra, which was held within the single-asset Acumen
Diversified Property Trust, has now settled and proceeds
distributed to all unit holders. The settlement of 222
Exhibition Street, Melbourne - scheduled to occur in June 2005 -
has been deferred until late August, with the purchaser
providing an increased non-refundable deposit. The settlement of
a 50% interest in the Ernst & Young Centre and 50 Goulburn
Street, Sydney, and a 50% interest in World Square Shopping
Centre and car park remain on program to settle in late July,
2005.

REDMEPTION OF CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED SECURITIES (CPS)

Multiplex Group advised that it currently has 801,704 Multiplex
CPS outstanding with a redemption value of AU$80.17 million.
These CPS are due for redemption by Sept. 30, 2005 and were
previously assumed to be redeemed through thye proceeds raised
from the fully underwritten distribution reinvestment plan
(DRP), relating to the June half year (they would otherwise
convert into stapled securities on Sept. 30, 2005).

As previously advised the Group has elected to suspend the
operation of the DRP. The directors have decided to redeem the
CPS in full ahead of the redemption obligations. Funds for the
redemption of the CPS will be sources from a combination of the
Group's existing cash reserves and undrawn debt facilities.

The total number of Multiplex Group securities on issue
following redemption of the outstanding CPS is as follows:

Class                                         Number of
Securities

MXG Fully paid stapled securities             837,402,185

MXGAI Convertible Preferred Securities (CPS)  0

MULTIPLEX: Vows to Deliver Wembley on Time
------------------------------------------
Multiplex Group director John Roberts has assured British
Minister for Sport Richard Caborn that the troubled Wembley
Stadium project will be completed on the scheduled date, relates
the Sydney Morning Herald.

According to Mr. Caborn, Multiplex promised to hand over the
stadium on time at the end of January.

Mr. Caborn made the comments before Wednesday's secrete ballot
for London to hold the 2012 Olympic Games.

When questioned about any backlash in terms of London's bid for
the Olympics because of Multiplex's problems with Wembley, he
was adamant there would be none.

This is a Company that has posted a A$170 million profit, I've
been reassured just that it will be on time," he said.

The minister later clarified this statement, saying that the
meeting with Multiplex's Mr. Roberts, who is now based in
London, had been two weeks earlier.

Mr. Roberts resigned his chairmanship but stayed on as a
director of the Company he founded more than four decades
earlier amid fallout from Multiplex's cost overruns at the
Wembley refurbishment.

WAVERLEY WOOLLEN: Creditors Move to Rescue Blanket, Rug Maker
-------------------------------------------------------------
As a final attempt to save Waverley Woollen Mills, creditors of
the veteran travel rug and blanket manufacturer have agreed to
accept a portion of what they are owed, according to Mercury
News.

Administrator Dick Shoobridge confirmed a group of investors was
seeking under a deed-of-Company arrangement to raise funds to
pay out the secured creditor Westpac Bank, which is owed AU$1.5
million.

Under the deed, Westpac is considered paid out. The taxation
office, which was also a creditor (owed AU$643,844), would also
be paid out under the agreement.

Mr. Shoobridge said some new investors had joined people
involved with the firm in trying to raise finance.

Waverley Woollen went into administration in May with total
debts of about AU$3 million.

Remarks:

(1) MODIFIED OPINION FROM AUDITORS

Fundamental Uncertainty In Respect Of Going Concern

In forming our opinion, they have considered the adequacy of the
disclosures on the adoption of the going concern basis for the
preparation of the financial statements.  As explained in the
financial statements, the Group sustained a net loss and
operated under a negative cash flow for the year. The Group also
had net current liabilities of HK$5,216,661 as at the balance
sheet date.

Also explained in the financial statements, the financial
statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, the
validity of which is dependent on the Group's ability to return
to normal and profitable operational activity, the continuing
financial support from the Group's lender and the successful
conclusion to secure the new source of funding. The financial
statements do not include any adjustments that might be
necessary should the future operations could not generate
adequate working capital and/ or the financial support mentioned
above would be withdrawn. We consider that appropriate
disclosures have been made and our opinion is not qualified in
this respect.

(2) BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND FUNDAMENTAL UNCERTAINTIES

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with
Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards (which also include
Statements of Standard Accounting Practice and Interpretations)
issued by the HKICPA, accounting principles generally accepted
in Hong Kong, and the disclosure requirements of the Hong Kong
Companies Ordinance and the applicable disclosure provisions of
the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on Growth
Enterprise Market (the GEM) of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong
Limited (GEM Listing Rules). The financial statements have been
prepared under the historical cost convention.

The Group sustained a consolidated net loss from ordinary
activities attributable to shareholders of HK$3,420,760 for the
year ended March 31, 2005 and had consolidated net current
liabilities of HK$5,216,661 and consolidated net liabilities of
HK$17,101,193 as at March 31, 2005. During the year ended 31
March 2005 and subsequently, the directors have taken active
measures to improve the liquidity and financial position of the
Group.  The directors have prepared the financial statements on
a going concern basis, having regard to the following:

During the year, the Company extended a loan agreement with an
independent third party to extend the total limit of a loan to
be advanced to the Company from HK$10,000,000 to HK$15,000,000
and also extend the repayment date to June 30, 2006.  The loan
was principally granted for providing working capital to the
Group.  As at March 31, 2005, the drawdown by the Group amounted
to approximately HK$10.6 million. The loan and interest thereon
would be due for repayment in full by June 30, 2006. The
directors of the Company believed that such arrangement would
relieve the Group's liquidity difficulty.

On May 27, 2005, the Company entered into a subscription
agreement with a subscriber who is an independent third party.

Subject to the passing of the ordinary resolutions at an
extraordinary general meeting to be held on 6 July 2005 to
approve the share consolidation and the subscription agreement,
the Company will allot and issue 450,000,000 shares to the
subscriber upon the completion of the share consolidation, at a
subscription price of HK$0.04 per subscription share.  The net
proceeds of the subscription of shares amounted to approximately
HK$17,000,000 would be used principally as the general working
capital of the Group or for making future investments.

The directors are of the view that the above measures will
enable the Group to continue as a going concern and that the
Group will have sufficient working capital for the foreseeable
future. Accordingly, the directors are satisfied that it is
appropriate to prepare the financial statements on a going
concern basis.

However, if these measures were not to be successful or
insufficient, or if the going concern basis were not to be
appropriate, adjustments would have to be made to the financial
statements to restate the value of the Group's assets to their
recoverable amounts, to provide for any further liabilities
which might arise and to reclassify non-current assets and
liabilities as current assets and liabilities, respectively.

(3) (LPS)- BASIC

The calculation of basic loss per share is based on the net for
the year of approximately HK$3,420,000 (2004 net loss of
approximately HK$23,887,000) and on the weighted average number
of 469,000,000 (2003 V 460,000,000) shares
in issue during the year.

(4) DIVIDEND

The directors do not recommend the payment of any final dividend
for the year. (2004: Nil).

ABDI BANGSA: Buys More Firms Despite Losses
-------------------------------------------
Despite an increase in losses, media firm PT Abdi Bangsa Tbk is
set to acquire two media companies this year, reports the
Jakarta Post.

Abdi Bangsa president director Erick Thohir said that the
Company plans to acquire up to 60% of newspaper publishing firm
PT Emas Indonesia Duaribu, adding that they have agreed on Abdi
Bangsa's buying a 25% stake.

According to Mr. Thohir, it is likely that they would be able to
buy 60% of Emas Indonesia Duaribu. The shares would then go to
the Company's shareholders who are not its founders nor
employees.

The acquisition is expected to be worth IDR6 billion and is set
to be completed this month.

The other Company that Abdi Bangsa plans to buy is PT Radionet
Cipta Karya, which controls FM radio stations in Jakarta and
Bandung, among others. The Company would decide whether to merge
with the firm or buy it out in September.

PT Abdi Bangsa has posted losses since 2002. It suffered a net
loss if IDR4.39 billion. In 2003, the Company incurred a IDR7.37
billion net loss, which increased to IDR16.36 billion last year.

According to the Company, the losses were due to extraordinary
items such as provisions for bad debts that amounted to IDR8.43
billion and a difference between asset valuations and real
market value, which cost IDR5.62 billion.

But despite all these, the Company's revenues increased 35% this
year to 17.64 billion, and plans to continue expanding its
business.

P.T. Abdi Bangsa Tbk. is an Indonesia-based media and printing
Company. The Company's principal activity is the publication of
daily newspapers.

ASIA PULP: Two Units Return to Black After Debt Restructure
-----------------------------------------------------------
Paper firm PT Asia Pulp & Paper Co.'s two subsidiaries, namely
PT Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper and PT Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia,
report a return to profit after completing debt-restructuring
programs, AFX News reports.

In the restructuring program of PT Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper, the
Company issued bonds worth IDR981.9 billion, and creditors of
parent Asia Pulp agreed to restructure IDR46.13 trillion worth
of debt owed by both Indah Kiat and Tjiwi Kimia in a Master
Restructuring Agreement (MRA) that went into effect on April 28,
2005.

Indah Kiat posted IDR2.81 trillion in losses in 2003, but after
the debt restructure where it gained returns amounting to IDR6.6
trillion, the firm was able to generate a net profit of IDR3.85
trillion in 2004.

PT Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia reported a net loss of IDR314.7
billion in 2003, but was able to turn anround in 2004 with a net
profit of IDRi.82 trillion due to IDR2.7 trillion in gains from
the debt restructuring.

It was only in December 2004 that the foreign creditors of Asia
Pulp & Paper Co. approved its debt-restructuring program. Around
93% of the Company's debt to creditors (65.82 trillion) is owed
by its subsidiaries.

PERTAMINA: Board of Directors Stays On
--------------------------------------
State oil and gas firm PT Pertamina's board of directors is
staying on despite reports of a change of management for the
firm, reports the Jakarta Post.

According to Pertamina President Commissioner Martiono Hadianto,
there are no plans to change its current board of directors or
review their performance, as such may only be done after an
audited financial report of the Company.

The Company is still awaiting the completion of its assets
revaluation from the Ministry of Finance, before it can have its
financial reports for the last quarter of 2003 audited.

The Company also plans to follow up the deal between the
Indonesian government and U.S. firm ExxonMobil on the
development of a Pertamina-owned gas block in Cepu. According to
a memorandum of understanding reached by both parties, both
ExxonMobil and Pertamina are slated to receive from 6.75% to
13.5% of the total output from the Cepu block, depending on oil
prices.

The Company's board of directors has the task of following up
the agreement, to come up with a binding contract within three
months from June 25, 2005. Pertamina management is doing
everything it can to ensure that both the Company and the
government would benefit as much as possible from the agreement,
according to Company vice president Mustiko Saleh.

PERTAMINA: Fuel Shortage Delays Maintenance Shutdown of Refinery
----------------------------------------------------------------
The recent fuel shortage in Indonesia has pushed back the
planned temporary shutdown by state oil firm PT Pertamina of its
Dumai oil refinery, Dow Jones reports.

The refinery, which is located in Riau, was scheduled to be shut
down for 21 days this month for maintenance reasons. But
according to Company director Suroso Atmomartoyo, they decided
to delay the shutdown by another two weeks, so as to continue
producing more oil to cope with increased national demand and
the lack of supply.

The Dumai oil refinery produces up to 120,000 barrels of fuel
per day.

Pertamina's Dumai refinery is one of the Company's nine oil
refineries, which produce 1 million barrels of oil daily.


TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA: Seeks to Extend Submission of Report
--------------------------------------------------------------
Indonesia's telecommunications firm PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia
(Telkom) announced that it submitted to the U.S. Securities &
Exchange Commission (SEC) a proposal to extend the deadline of
submission of its 2004 audited financial report, reports the
Jakarta Post.

The Company seeks the extension due to failure to submit its
accounts based on SEC standards by the June 30 deadline. In a
statement, Telkom announced that it needs more time to complete
its 2004 financial report, as its 2003 financial report is being
interviewed by the country's financial regulator, and it is
working with advisors on the review of its 2004 financial
statements. But it may be likely that the Company would not be
able to pass its report even with the proposed extension.

Since Telkom's American depositary receipts are traded on the
New York Stock Exchange, the Company must submit its financial
records to the U.S. SEC. The Company started having problems
with its financial statements when the SEC rejected its 2002
financial report, as its Company auditor was not recognized by
the commission, forcing the Company to select another auditor
(PricewaterhouseCoopers) to audit its accounts.

This, in turn, resulted in the Company's revision of its 2002
financial statements in order to incorporate certain changes
such as a 3.7% decline in its (consolidated) net profit. And the
Company was also late in submitting its 2003 report because of
that delay.

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia owns more than 50% of the state's
mobile communications market, and recently appointed Bank Negara
Vice President Mr. Arwin Rasyid to be its new president
director.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Confirms Order for Six 767-300ERs
-------------------------------------------------
The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) confirmed
on Friday an order by JAL for six new Boeing 767-300ER
airplanes, valued at approximately $800 million at list prices.

The airline will receive three freighters and three passenger
models. Deliveries will begin in 2007 and run through early
2008. It is the first time JAL has ordered the 767-300ER
Freighter.

"Boeing and Japan Airlines have a very special relationship,
based on long-time mutual knowledge and trust," said Boeing
Commercial Airplanes Vice President of Sales Larry Dickenson.

"These 767 models provide excellent efficiency and reliability
for JAL's regional routes. We are proud to be JAL's partner."

General Electric CF6-80C2 high-bypass turbofan engines will
power the new airplanes. With this order, Japan Airlines' 767
commitments total 46 airplanes.

The 767 offers superior reliability and low operating cost per
trip. Boeing has delivered 930 767s that are flown by more than
100 operators worldwide. The 767 family has accumulated more
than 10 million flights and carried millions of passengers.

The 767 Freighter is the only 60-ton freighter with
international capability and can accommodate a combined maximum
payload capability of 16,034 feet3 (454 m3). At its 60.5-ton
(54.88 metric ton) maximum payload, the 767 Freighter has a
range of 3,270 nautical miles (6,056 km). When carrying 50 tons
(45.4 metric tons), the 767 Freighter has a range of 4,255
nautical miles (7,880 km).

JAPAN AIRLINES: Postpones Domestic Late Night Cargo Flights
-----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines (JAL) has decided to postpone indefinitely the
launch of scheduled late night domestic air cargo flights
between Tokyo and Kumamoto in central Kyushu, following
objections by local residents over aircraft noise.

The flights were planned to start from July 7, initially on a
three nights per week basis, increasing to daily flights from
November.

After revising the flight schedule to further reduce
disturbance, JAL intends to continue to seek the local
community's acceptance of the new service, which has the support
of many local businesses. Farmers, growers of fruit and
vegetables and seafood producers in the southern Kyushu region
see the new flights as a major business opportunity and a boost
for the local economy.

There is no new date set for the start of the service but JAL
hopes that the issue can be settled as soon as possible.

Initially, JAL had planned to use Airbus 300-600R aircraft
because of the aircraft's low noise rating, in consideration of
residents near the airport.

To further minimize noise disturbance, the flights had been
timed to arrive at Kumamoto as early as possible and to depart
for Tokyo as late as possible. JAL had announced that crews
would make maximum use of noise abatement procedures, such as
refraining from using reverse thrust on landing as much as
possible. Other measures included reduced power landing
approaches and selected take-off patterns to reduce the flight
noise imprint on the ground. In preparation for the cargo
flights, in February JAL made test-flights to assess night noise
effects in the Kumamoto Airport area.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Relocates Head Office
----------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has recently decided to relocate
its head office, moving from its present address at the
Shinagawa Mitsubishi Building, 2-16-4 Konan, Minato-ku to the
Daiichi Tamachi Building, 5-33-8 Shiba, Minato-ku in December
next year.

The decision was prompted by the fact that the lease on the
current head office property expires next year.

Mitsubishi Motors used to have its head office at the Daiichi
Tamachi Building until April 2003.

The Company has taken the decision to move back because the
Daiichi Tamachi Building will become available for occupancy
again in the fall of 2006 and because it will realize cost
reductions.

Mitsubishi Motors had been planning to relocate head office
functions to Kyoto but the Company has decided to re-examine the
scale and timing of the relocation as the prospects for
achieving the Mitsubishi Motors Revitalization Plan grow
stronger. As a result, Mitsubishi Motors has decided to locate
its head office at the Daiichi Tamachi Building from December
next year and thereby devotes its efforts to the ongoing drive
to achieve the Revitalization Plan.

ASIANA AIRLINES: Normal Ops to Push Through Amid Planned Strike
---------------------------------------------------------------
Asiana Airlines assured that no flight disruptions would
materialize on the day the unionized pilots stage their 24-hour
strike, reports Associated Press.

The airline would utilize its 299 non-unionized pilots in order
to service passenger of its 127 domestic and 140 international
flights during the possible strike.  Around 50,000 passengers
are expected to fly with Asiana during the period.

Lee Hack-ju, an official at the pilot's union, said Asiana's
unionized pilots threatened to stage a strike on demands of
increased job security and reduced flying hours.

The union and the airline scheduled a meeting Monday to talk
over the pilot's demands in order to avert the planned walkout

DAEWOO SHIPBUILDING: Wins US$350-Mln Contract to Build LNG-RV
-------------------------------------------------------------
Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co. (DSME) won
contracts to build vessels for gas companies in Belgium and
Greece worth US$350 million, Yonhap News relates.

For the Belgian firm Exmar, DSME will build a 150,900-cubic-
meter liquified natural gas re-gasification vessel (LNG-RV),
tentatively named the Explorer.  The Company is also to provide
the Greek gas Company Maran Gas Maritime Inc. with an 84,000-
cubic-meter liquefied petroleum gas carrier by January 2009.

The LNG-RV supplies regasified LNG directly without using
storage facilities on land or huge tanks, which is convenient
for meeting small-size demand. Delivery is set for March 2008.

DSME eyes an expansion on LNG-RV demand since it can provide LNG
without a huge investment in equipment.  In the first five
months of the year, the Company has obtained orders for 15 ships
worth US$2.63 billion in the first five months of the year, or
44 percent of its 2005 target.

that the execution of the Underwriting Agreement may be delayed

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: SEC Poised to Take Over Management
-----------------------------------------------------
The corporate regulator has finally heeded the call of an
oversight committee and agreed to take over the management of
ailing College Assurance Plans (Philippines) Inc. (CAP), The
Manila Standard reports.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) confirmed it has
accepted the recommendation of the oversight committee, but
ordered the committee to gather additional data before the
commission carries out the take over.

Under the takeover plan, the commission will form a management
committee that will take over the business operations of CAP.
The committee will also determine how best to operate the
Company by balancing the interest of its shareholders and
planholders.

The SEC has yet to determine the composition of the management
committee.

The SEC' decision to put CAP under its care was reportedly
prompted by the pre-need firm's failure to find a new investor
who is willing to inject much-needed capital into the Company.

Last month, CAP said it was expecting European investor
International Global Holdings Inc. (IGHI) to provide a capital
infusion of US$100 million, which will be used to pay tuition
obligations.

But until now, CAP has not presented any proof that IGHI had
indeed made the investment.

LEPANTO CONSOLIDATED: Gov't Urges Miners to Return to Work
----------------------------------------------------------
Mountain Province Governor Maximo Dalog has called workers of
Lepanto Consolidated Mining Corporation to honor a return-to-
work order issued by the labor department, reveals SunStar
Daily.

Gov. Dalog is concerned that the labor dispute between Lepanto's
management and the employees union has been detrimental to both
parties. The governor explained the row has not only resulted to
loss of income for the workers, but also the loss of production
for the Lepanto.

On June 2, around 1,600 Lepanto mine workers staged a strike due
to a deadlock in a collective bargaining agreement with the
Company.

On June 8, Labor Secretary directed the striking employees to go
back to work. Union members, however, defied the order and
reiterated their demand for a daily wage hike.

On June 15, the Dole issued another order granting workers
graduated increases amounting to Php25, Php27 and Php29 daily
per year for the next three years.

But the union remained on strike. They instead asked Lepanto to
execute a memorandum to withdraw the dismissal order it issued
to around 75 officials and members of the union.

The mining firm however remains firm up to the present in its
decision not to readmit dismissed workers, saying the stubborn
workers should face consequences of their actions.

MAYNILAD WATER: Japanese Firm to Asses Facilities
-------------------------------------------------
A Japanese firm will assist its local partner DMCI Holdings Inc.
in its due diligence of Maynilad Water Services Inc., according
to Today News.

Marubeni Corp. will send representatives to Manila to help DMCI
appraise the assets of ailing water concessionaire Maynilad.

DMCI is one of the several firms interested to acquire Lopez-led
Maynilad, which controls the west concession of the Metropolitan
Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS). DMCI has reportedly
tapped the Australian firm Macquarie Group as financial adviser
of the proposed acquisition.

The control of cash-strapped Maynilad is now up for grabs after
the water utility firm suffered financial difficulties.

Maynilad applied a petition for corporate rehabilitation in 2003
after it failed to pay off huge debts, Php10 billion of which
was owed to the MWSS in concession fees.

The rehabilitation plan was granted approval by a local court a
few months ago, paving the way for the return of the west
concession to the state-backed MWSS.

But the government decided to let go of Maynilad and opted to
turn it over to an interested private operator.

MAYNILAD WATER: Clients Seek Rehab Halt
---------------------------------------
Maynilad Water Services Inc.'s customers, along with three
lawmakers, want the Supreme Court to suspend the implementation
of the water firm's rehabilitation scheme, according to
BusinessWorld.

Maynilad clients and party-list representatives Loretta Ann P.
Rosales, Emmanuel Joel J. Villanueva, and Del R. de Guzman filed
the 28-page petition last week.

The petitioners claim Maynilad's court-approved restructuring is
unlawful and "contrary to public policy". They also claim that
the 52-percent increase in Maynilad's water tariff in January,
as approved by state-agency Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage
System (MWSS) is illegal since it didn't undergo the required
public notice and hearing.

The petitioners all asked the Court to also compel the water
utility to refund the increase in water tariff it had collected
since January.

According to the petitioners, Maynilad's court-approved
financial rehabilitation program would allow it to cancel its
performance bond issued in favor of MWSS since the water
regulator would become the water concession's majority
shareholder, with an 84-percent interest.

Petitioners claimed that the rehabilitation plan would also
allow Maynilad to evade its service obligations, including
making water service available 24 hours starting 2006, as stated
in the 1997 concession agreement.

The Maynilad customers also alleged that the debt-restructuring
program provided for the use of US$53.67 million in public funds
to "bail out" stockholders and creditors of Maynilad.

The viability of the rehabilitation plan, the petitioners added,
is based on the 52-percent increase in water tariff, which took
effect on January 1, 2005 following the issuance of a resolution
on it by the MWSS Board of Trustees last December 2004.


METRO PACIFIC: Postpones AGM to August 12

NATIONAL BANK: Denies Providing Info About Joint Sale Terms
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine National Bank (PNB) issued this announcement in
reference to the news article entitled "Tan sets terms for PNB
joint sale" published in the July 1, 2005 issue of the Manila
Standard Today.

The article reported in part that:

"Taipan Lucio tan sought two conditions for him to agree to
extend the joint sale agreement of Philippine National Bank
(PNB) which he signed with government in 2002 and which expires
in September, banking sources said.

"A PNB insider said extending the joint sale agreement would
have gone hand in hand with extending Tan's warrants and was
probably one of the conditions the taipan sought. Privatization
officials declined to give details on the conditions that Tan
sought.

"'We rejected his conditions,' a source from the Philippine
Deposit Insurance Corp. (PDIC) said. 'It was something that
could put government at a disadvantage and we felt it is
something we can do without.'"

The Philippine National bank (PNB), in a letter to the Exchange
dated July 1, 2005, stated that:

"Please be advised that our office was not the source of
information which was the basis for the article, hence, w cannot
make a comment, or provide any useful information."

NATIONAL POWER: Ayala Group Keen on Assets
------------------------------------------
Ayala Group is looking to acquire National Power Corporation's
assets set for privatization, as part of efforts to venture into
the power business, The Philippine Star reports.

The country's largest conglomerate, however, would be competing
for Napocor's assets including 41 power facilities being
divested to pare the country's Php3.87-trillion (US$70 billion)
debt.

Ayala Group's interest in the power sector has remained firm
despite recent news that the nation's largest power retailer
Manila Electric Co. forecast a third year of losses and the sale
of a power plant canceled because of a lack of guaranteed
customers.

In Nov. 2002, Ayala Corp. head Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala II
said he wasn't interested in buying power plants or transmission
lines. This month though, Mr. Zobel said the Company now has the
capacity to enter a new industry.

Ayala's market value has doubled since Zobel ruled out energy
investments three years ago. Cash has tripled to Php35 billion,
while 2004 profit reached a record Php7 billion.

That leaves the Company well placed to consider new industries,
said Mr. Zobel, whose past acquisitions include three banks.

PACIFIC PLANS: Absorbs Affiliate Pending Rehab Program
------------------------------------------------------
Embattled Pacific Plans Inc. has finally agreed to fold back its
Yuchengco Group sister firm, Lifetime Plans Inc., according to
The Manila Standard.

Pacific Plans moved to address the "floating status" of Lifetime
Plans after the corporate regulator rejected the latter's appeal
for rehabilitation.

But according to a source at the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC), Pacific's absorption of Lifetime is just a
temporary measure pending its petition for rehabilitation with
the Makati Regional Trial Court.

Last week, the SEC denied Pacific's appeal to lift the order
revoking the Lifetime's certificate of registration since
Lifetime was not able to meet the requirements set in the
approval of the registration. The SEC's Company Registration and
Monitoring Department deemed insufficient Lifetime's
submissions.

Without the certificate of registration, Lifetime Plans is
considered nonexistent. Pacific Plans last year spun off its
earning businesses like fixed education plans, pension plans and
life plans to Lifetime Plans, and kept the troubled traditional
education plans.

projects, which are currently in progress.

* 10 Pre-need Firms on SEC Watch List
-------------------------------------
Some 10 pre-need providers that offered open-ended educational
plans are being closely monitored by the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) due to alleged liquidity issues, says The
Philippine Star.

Aside from Pacific Plans Inc. and College Assurance Plans, other
pre-need firms on the SEC's watch list are Platinum Plans, TPG
Corp., Prudential Life Plans, PET Plans, Eternal Plans, Eduplan
Phils., Legacy Consolidated Plans, Pryce Plans, Trusteeship
Plans, and Scholarship Plan Phils.

These pre-need firms offered a total of 796,263 open-ended plans
worth Php30.037 billion. When combined, the actuarial reserve
liabilities (ARL) of these companies amounted to Php32.76
billion of which CAP accounted for Php23.25 billion.

A measure of how healthy a pre-need Company is whether its trust
fund is equal to or exceeds the ARL. The trust fund is the pool
of premium payments from planholders that had been invested.

Recently, the SEC has been flocked with complaints against
Platinum plans for delayed or non-payment of obligations to
planholders. There were also reports that Platinum Plans has
been unpunctual in paying its employees.

Following the collapse of Pacific Plans, the SEC has stepped up
its monitoring over pre-need plan firms to ensure their
compliance with existing regulations.

For one, the SEC will conduct on-site audits on pre-need
companies to confirm the veracity of financial information
submitted to the corporate watchdog agency as part of additional
measures to safeguard the interest of the investing public.

Some lawmakers, however, are blaming the SEC for being remiss in
its duty to monitor and supervise the industry, now plagued with
controversies arising from the financial difficulties facing
pre-need firms.

Nevertheless, the SEC said it remains committed to protecting
the interest of investors.

The number of pre-need firms licensed by the SEC to sell
securities to the public dropped to 33 from 42 last year.

Among the companies that are not licensed to sell pre-need plans
are Platinum Plans Inc., Celestial Memorial Plans, East Asia
Plans, FCM Plans Inc., Garden of Memories Memorial Plans,
Gillamac Life & Pension Plans, Pension & Retirement Plans Corp.,
Samson Memorial Plans, and Special Plans.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: CITIC Cleared to Conduct Due Diligence
----------------------------------------------------------
The Central Bankruptcy Court has given CITIC Resources a go
signal to conduct due diligence on Thai Petrochemical Industry
Public Company Limited (TPI), reports Reuters.

The court believes that CITIC exists and would repay TPI's debt.
Earlier this month, CITIC said it was forming a joint venture
with six TPI shareholders, including TPI Holdings Co. Ltd. and
Leophairatana Enterprises Co. Ltd. to buy up to 75 percent of
TPI's issued share capital.  Once the deal is sealed, CITIC
would inject another $1 billion to boost TPI's capacity.

The approval of the CITIC due diligence hindered the government-
appointed administrators' plan to hand control of TPI to a group
of government-affiliated investors, including energy firm PTT
PCL, under a plan to restructure the Company's $2.7 billion
debt.

TPI's debt restructuring plan, which the government hopes to
complete by August 1, won't be affected by the court ruling,
Finance Minister Somkid Jatusripitak said, but delays would be
unavoidable.

Mr. Prachai has battled to gain control of TPI and has filed
more than 40 cases over the years.  The Company collapsed under
a mountain of foreign debt during the Asian economic crisis.
