BONLAC FOODS: Fonterra Confident About Takeover
-----------------------------------------------
New Zealand-based Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited is working
hard to win full ownership of Australian firm Bonlac Foods
Limited, Asia Pulse says.

Fonterra, which earlier lost in a takeover battle with
Philippines' San Miguel, is confident it will take over Bonlac
very soon.

Henry van der Heyden, Fonterra's current chairman, said that
Bonlac's supply farmers had responded positively when he met
them several weeks ago. This after Fonterra announced last month
that it was seeking to increase its stake in dairy Company
Bonlac from 50 percent to full ownership.     

Fonterra was reportedly keeping an eye out for further
acquisition opportunities in Australia, as well.

HIH INSURANCE: APRA Calls Off Ban on Former Exec
------------------------------------------------
The regulator has revoked a former HIH Insurance executive's
disqualification from senior insurance jobs, according to The
Australian.

The Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority (APRA) has
overturned a ban on Ross Eade after a second review of his case.
The regulator, however, refused to give precise reasons.

Mr. Eade was banned in March from acting as a director or senior
manager of a general insurer over his role in the collapse of
HIH Insurance Group in 2001.

APRA initially found against Mr. Eade, saying he had kept vital
financial information from the board about the state of the
Company and had instructed HIH's external auditors to remove
adverse information from reports.

APRA's latest move to overturn such a ban is believed to be the
third in the case of HIH executives.


ICON AUTOMOTIVE: Dispute Leaves Thousands of Workers Idle
---------------------------------------------------------
Carmakers have stood down thousands of workers in Victoria due
to an unresolved dispute at key Melbourne autoparts manufacturer
Icon Automotive, The Advertiser reports.

Toyota and Ford has sent a huge number of workers home, as they
shut down production at their vehicle assembly plants.

The two car manufacturers warned of further stand-downs if
urgent hearings in the Australian Industrial Relations
Commission (AIRC) do not resolve the dispute as soon as
possible.

About 120 employees at Icon went on strike on Friday because of
concerns about their entitlements after the Company was placed
in voluntary administration last week.
Unions discovered last week that the Company had not made its
last quarterly contributions into workers' superannuation funds,
suggesting there would be no money left for entitlements to
payments for redundancy, long service leave or annual leave.

Unions believe the Company has a bleak future after they were
told by administrators PPB that it was losing AU$50,000 a month,
had unfunded liabilities for employee entitlements of AU$7.4
million, and owed another AU$3.8 million to creditors.

Administrators PPB are attempting a deed of Company arrangement,
but have also called for expressions of interest from potential
buyers.

Unions will also seek a guarantee from Ford and Toyota for at
least 12 months of contracts with Icon.


INDUSTRIAL MARKETING: Supreme Court Orders Wind-up

MANITO PTY: ASIC Shuts Down Super Fund as Super Choice Starts
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
obtained orders Wednesday in the Federal Court of Australia
restraining Mr. Steve Preston (formerly known as Gordon Charles
Fowler) and Manito Pty Ltd, trading as Superannuation Retrieval
Services (SRS), from carrying on a business relating to
superannuation interests.

ASIC alleged that Mr. Preston and SRS were conducting a
financial services business without having an Australian
financial services license (AFSL) and providing misleading
advice to consumers about rolling over their superannuation
entitlements into self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs).

Mr. Preston consented to declarations that he had carried on a
financial services business without holding an AFSL and to an
order restraining him from carrying on a business related to
superannuation interests (without holding an AFSL). Mr Preston
and SRS have also undertaken to the court to not dispose of, (or
impinge on,) without prior approval, a residential property in
Wanneroo, Western Australia that is currently listed for sale.

The Federal Court has ordered the defendants to pay to the
clients, or their respective superannuation funds, all funds
received by Mr Preston or SRS, which were redeemed but have not
been paid to the clients or their SMSF. The Federal Court has
also authorized ASIC to send out a notice to the thirty-four
known clients. In this notice the clients will be asked to list
their superannuation interests and advise ASIC of any amounts
that still remain unpaid. If any other SRS clients do not
receive this notice from ASIC they should contact ASIC.*

"ASIC's allegations in this proceeding raise significant issues
for consumers who are thinking of rolling over their
superannuation savings into a self-managed superannuation fund.
Given the choice of superannuation fund that consumers are now
able to make, ASIC is concerned that consumers considering
establishing a self-managed superannuation fund should receive
proper advice from the holder of an Australian financial
services licence," Ms. Jan Redfern, ASIC's Executive Director,
Enforcement said.

"A licensed adviser will consider whether the amount of a
person's superannuation savings is sufficient to justify the
costs involved to establish and maintain a self-managed
superannuation fund," Ms. Redfern said.

This action arose out of ASIC's superannuation switching
campaign which was developed to ensure advisers fulfill their
obligations in relation to providing advice concerning a
client's existing super fund and any new fund that might be
recommended.

The obligations of financial advisers and trustees of SMSFs are
set out in Meeting Your Obligations, a booklet recently
published by the ASIC and the ATO. It also details the approach
ASIC and the ATO will take to ensure people comply with their
obligations.

Background

On 14 December 2004, ASIC obtained Federal Court orders by
consent in Perth in relation to Manito's advertising activities
including declarations against Manito, and injunctions
permanently restraining Manito and Mr. Preston.

ASIC issued further Federal Court proceedings against Mr.
Preston and SRS after 34 Melbourne clients were recently
approached by SRS to have their superannuation rolled into
SMSFs. ASIC is concerned that at least 10 of these clients have,
to date, not received all of their superannuation funds.

In some cases, ASIC alleged consumers with as little as AU$8,000
in superannuation entitlements have been advised by Mr. Preston
and SRS to establish self-managed superannuation funds and have
been charged up to AU$1,500 in fees. ASIC also alleges that a
significant amount of SRS clients' superannuation entitlements
remain unpaid.

MULTIPLEX: Needs AU$100 Mln to Save Stadium
-------------------------------------------
Multiplex warned the State Government a stadium project in Perth
is likely to stall due to lack of funds, The West Australian.

The firm asked the State Government to double its financial
contribution if it wants the Company to complete a new 12,000-
plus-seat multi-purpose indoor stadium for the State.

The Government has offered a AU$50 million contribution over 20
years but Multiplex says it needs as much as AU$102 million over
two years to build two of the three proposals it has put
forward. Multiplex has asked for AU$86 million to build a
stadium at the State Tennis Centre at Burswood or AU$102 million
if it chooses the Northbridge Link site at the Mitchell Freeway
end of the Perth Entertainment Centre site. Both options would
seat 12,500 people.

The other option is to revamp the mothballed entertainment
center at a cost to Government of AU$51 million over two years
but this does not meet the Government's requirements because it
would seat 11,500 people.

Multiplex was the only bidder for the stadium project after
Mirvac Fini pulled out of the race last month, saying the $50
million contribution was not enough.

* Net Internet Fraud Losses Exceed AU$200 Mln
---------------------------------------------
The Internet Industry Association (IIA) has revealed that
Australian banks lose more than AU$200 million annually due to
Internet fraud, The Advertiser reports.

Although the banks refused to disclose their actual losses, ABN
Amro analyst Jarrod Martin predicted the banks would soon be
forced to address the issue more publicly as losses grow and
attacks become more sophisticated.

"The banks have certainly tried to make customers aware of it
but as of yet we haven't seen a great deal of publicly announced
losses come through. But I imagine the losses will become more
significant and more public as the fraudsters get more refined
in their approach," Mr. Martin said.

Despite the estimated AU$1 million-a-month loss incurred by NAB,
Mr. Martin said the problem impacted more on public sentiment
than on the bank's bottom-line earnings.

"The best way to compare it is to look at loan defaults in an
annual period and in any given year NAB has between AU$500
million and AU$600 million in bad debt expenses. So AU$12
million per year from Internet fraud is minor," Mr. Martin said.

Even the estimated AU$70 million in annual losses across the Big
Four banks amounted to a "small blip" in the context of their
$2.5 billion to $3 billion in yearly bad debt costs, Mr. Martin
said.

A spokesman for Suncorp Metway and Bank of Queensland both said
their losses through Internet theft had been minimal. They also
stressed that beefed-up security and increased public awareness
had helped.

Westpac spokeswoman also declined to detail losses through
Internet fraud, although she said the bank's losses were "well
below the industry average".

Nevertheless, banks wanted to encourage greater Internet usage
and stories about unchecked fraud are quite damaging.

CHINA UNICOM: Handset Subsidies Decline to CNY1.1 Bln
-----------------------------------------------------
China Unicom Limited said that the Company's subsidies for Code
Division Multiple Access (CDMA) subscribers for the first
quarter this year decreased to CNY1.1 billion from CNY2.7
billion in the previous quarter, China Knowledge Press reports.

The mobile operator aims to make up losses incurred form its
CDMA business this year. The business made an operating loss of
CNY280 million in the first quarter.

However, its GSM business is profitable, making 2.13 B yuan in
the same period.          


GUANGDONG KELON: Shares Slump After Court Freezes Some Assets
-------------------------------------------------------------
Guangdong Kelon Electrical Holdings Co. shares dropped by 10
percent on Tuesday after the court had frozen its stake in Huayi
Compressor Co. and CNY17.1 million (US$2 million) deposits,
according to the International Herald Tribune.

The Jiaxing Intermediate People's Court has ordered the freeze
after Huayi took Kelon to court due to a loan-guarantee dispute,
according to Kelon, without further details.

Due to huge loss of over CNY60 million (US$7.23 million) in the
fourth quarter last year, the China Securities Regulatory
Commission (CSRC) launched an investigation into Kelon in April.

Kelon incurred profits of CNY200 million (US$24 million) in the
first three quarters of last year, thus the sudden loss in the
last quarter drew much attention. A number of investors believed
that Company President Gu Chujun embezzled Kelon's capital to
acquire Meiling Electronics and Yaxing Truck.

HONGKONG CONSTRUCTION: Clarifies Litigation Report
--------------------------------------------------
This announcement is made in response to the recent reports
appearing in Hong Kong and the PRC in relation to a legal
proceeding commenced by the Sub-Contractor in Beijing claiming
from HongKong Construction (Holdings) Limited, together with
others, a sum of approximately CNY36 million (about HK$34
million), being the alleged outstanding balance of interim
payment due to it under a sub-contract made in connection with
the construction of the National Grand Theatre in Beijing, the
PRC.

The Company is one of the main contractors for the construction
of the National Grand Theatre. The Company confirmed that it had
received a statement of claim issued by the Sub-Contractor
containing brief particulars of such claim.

The Board, however, believes that the Company had duly made all
payments due to the Sub-Contractor in accordance with the
relevant sub-contract. The Board takes the view that the Company
has good defense against the allegation by the Sub-Contractor.

The Company has already consulted several PRC legal advisers
intending to vigorously defend itself and, where appropriate, to
counterclaim against the Sub-Contactor in the proceeding in the
PRC.

As such, no provision is thought appropriate for the claim at
the moment. In the opinion of the Directors, it is quite normal
and inevitable for companies engaged in the construction
industries to have claims and/or disputes with the other
contracting parties. The Directors do not consider that the
present claim will have any material adverse effect on the
Company.

BANK DKI: Bond Rating Upgraded to BBB
-------------------------------------
PEFINDO upgraded the ratings for PT Bank DKI (BDKI) and its Bond
IV/2004 due 2009 to "idBBB" from "idBBB-". The rating action
reflects the Bank's improving financial performance following
its credit expansion, yet the Bank's limited funding product
development due to limited banking technology still mitigates
the ratings.

BDKI's business position remains relatively stagnant, as the
Bank operates in greater Jakarta areas, where the competition is
very tight compared to its BPD peers in other provinces in
Indonesia.

The Bank's market shares in loans and deposits relatively
remained at the same levels of 0.8% of banking industry for both
(vs. 1% and 0.8% in 2003), although in absolute amount its total
loans grew significantly by nearly 30% y-y to IDR2.2 tn in 2004,
while total deposits grew by 10% y-y to IDR4.2 tn. Accordingly,
the Bank's total assets have grown significantly by 23% y-y to
IDR6.9 tn in 2004.

The Bank has also continued to improve its network coverage by
opening new branches in some new prospective areas and enhance
its IT banking system to support its product developments. As to
date, the Bank that is still 100% owned by Jakarta Provincial
Government, operates 89 branches and 47 units of fully owned
ATMs, which are also linked to more than 5,000 units of ATM
Bersama network.

JAPAN AIRLINES: To Review Routes; May Shift to Charter Services
---------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corporation (JAL) will decide on whether to end
flights with low profitability or shift to charter services,
according to Japan Times, citing JAL President Toshiyuki
Shinmachi.

"We will accelerate a review of routes with low profitability
and leave no stone unturned," Mr. Shinmachi said in an interview
late last week.

The airline has a high ratio of international flights and thus
it is more vulnerable to international conditions, such as a
rise in crude oil prices and terrorist acts.

On the safety blunders recently embroiling the carrier, Mr.
Shinmachi said, "There was distance between staff and management
in the process of management integration, and communication
between the divisions was insufficient."

it was no longer going to give Mitsubishi financial support.

18 percent upturn.

ASIANA AIRLINES: Failure to Reach Agreement Intensifies Strike
--------------------------------------------------------------
The strike by Asiana Airlines unionized pilots has reached its
fourth day as its effect on the airlines' operation escalates,
Digital Chosunilbo reveals.

All domestic flights were grounded, except Jeju Island route on
Monday.  On Tuesday, an 8:00 p.m. flight for Sydney was
cancelled, the first international flight to be cancelled.  A
cargo plane also sits idle on the same day, in contrast to
Korean Air's busy cargo terminals.

Cargo flights have been grounded since Sunday.  Asiana's cargo
business team said alternative transport for reserved cargo has
been sought.  The carrier plans to store transshipment cargo for
a week and load it onto passenger jets and other flights. Losses
from the strike between Sunday and Tuesday are seen to have
reached KRW4 billion.

The protesters suspended talks with Asiana Tuesday because they
believe the management was not sincere enough.  The pilots were
willing to drop as many as 50 demands and end the strike as soon
as possible if management agrees to their demands concerning
employment security and flight safety.

CITIBANK KOREA: Faces Lawsuit for Alleged Loan Fraud
----------------------------------------------------
The labor union of Citibank Korea Inc. filed with the Seoul
Districts Prosecutors office a lawsuit for allegedly deceiving
customers, reveals The Korea Herald.

Some KRW600 billion in loans were offered at the end of 2002
with payments linked to floating market rates.  Despite the fall
in Korea's market rates Citigroup's former Korean banking unit
did not lower loan rates. The union said Citibank deceived
customers when it did not lower loan rates payments.   

The unit then posted more than KRW7.4 billion of extra gains
between the end of 2002 and March this year, without defining
the market rates it was citing.

Last November, the banking unit merge with Koram bank, seven
months after New York-based Citigroup, acquired Koram for $2.6
billion, which is considered the biggest foreign investment in
Korea's financial industry.

Citibank Korea acknowledged not adjusting the interest rate for
the products sold prior to the merger but denied any wrongdoing.

"We believe our pricing to be both responsible and in line with
market conditions at the time," the Seoul-based bank said.
"After the integration (with the former Citibank Seoul branch),
we lowered the rate by 100 basis points in March, and we offer
one of the best products in the market."

One of Citigroup's top priorities is to iron out a not so good
relation with the labor union.  Citibank Seoul branch has a
separate labor union representing 200 employees, aside from the
union employees from Koram Bank.

"We hope the bank will honor its promises to customers in
Korea," Lee Yong-ha, a vice leader at the former Koram union,
told Bloomberg news service. "We want to fix problems before
losing our precious customers."

Citibank Korea aims to expand its market share to 10 percent
from 7 percent in November 2004 in the Asia's third-largest
retail banking market.

the electronics Company.

F&J PRINCE: Earmarks Php150 Mln for IT Park
-------------------------------------------
Despite its losses, F&J Prince Holdings Corp. has allocated
Php150 million for the initial phase of an information
technology (IT) business park in Pasig, BusinessWorld reports.

The project is in line with F&J's bid to expand its presence in
outsourcing and real estate.

President and Chief Executive Robert Y. Cokeng said the park
will house F&J's own affiliates as well as other participants in
the outsourcing sector such as call centers.

"It is a good prospect for an IT park because of large number of
call centers and outsourcing companies. We are thinking of
possibly putting up a Philippine Economic Zone Authority-
registered IT park in Pasig," he added.

F&J is now talking to potential lessees for its build-to-suit
building. The first building is estimated at P150 million.

In 2004, F&J inked deals to acquire 35 percent interest in
Business Process Outsourcing International, Inc., which was spun
off from the former outsourcing department of Sycip Gorres
Velayo & Co.

F&J incurred a Php21.22 million in net loss last year against
P22.54 million in earnings in 2003.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Consumers Oppose New Rate Hike Petition
--------------------------------------------------------
A number of Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) consumers have
expressed their disapproval of the utility firm's bid to hike
basic power rates, according to Asia Pulse.

The National Association of Electricity Consumers for Reforms
(Nasecore) has filed before the Energy Regulatory Commission
(ERC) its opposition to Meralco's latest petition to increase
power rates by 14.76 centavos per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

Meralco is asking the ERC to allow its to earn a 15.93-percent
return on rate base (RORB) based on its own computation of the
weighted average cost of capital (WACC) formula.

In its petition, Meralco claims that its failure to attain a
reasonable RORB has prevented it from upgrading its distribution
systems which, in effect, will result in power disruptions and
deterioration of electric service.

Nasecore also called on the ERC to suspend the hearing of the
petition in the same way that it deferred its hearing on
Meralco's application to reduce interest rates on meter and bill
deposits in consideration of the pending petition for review
with the Supreme Court on the Meralco unbundling decision.

Meanwhile, Nasecore President Pete Ilagan said it is the
responsibility of the stockholders to shell-out the much-needed
funds from their pockets to support the capital projects of
their Company since they are the ones who enjoy the profits of
Meralco and not its customers.

Mr. Ilagan also asked the regulatory body to seek the assistance
of the Commission on Audit (COA) to conduct a thorough audit of
Meralco in behalf of the consumers in accordance with the
Administrative Code of 1987 and Commonwealth Act No. 325.

NATIONAL BANK: Unaware of Any Submissions by BPI
------------------------------------------------
The Philippine National Bank (PNB) issued this announcement in
reference to the news article entitled "Ayalas to bid for 67%
stake in PNB" published in the July 18, 2005 issue of the
Philippine Daily Inquirer (Internet Edition).

The article reported in part that:

"The Ayala's Bank of the Philippine Islands, the country's
second biggest bank, will challenge tobacco magnate Lucio Tan
over the right to buy a controlling stake in Philippine National
Bank. In an interview with the Inquirer, BPI President Aurelio
Montinola III said the bank had submitted the documents needed
to prequalify for the auction on Aug. 12 of a 67-percent stake
in PNB held jointly by the government and the Tan group.

"A potential merger with PNB, assuming BPI would win the
bidding, can catapult the bank into the country's biggest and
finally edge out taipan George Ty's Metropolitan Bank and Trust
Co., which has been at the top since 1996."

PNB, in its letter to the Philippine Stock Exchange date July
18, 2005, stated that:

"We were not privy to the interview of BPI President Aurelio
Montinola III with the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Therefore, we
cannot comment as to the substance of their conversation.

"As for his statement that the documents needed to prequalify
for the bidding on August 12, 2005 of a 67% stake in PNB which
is held jointly by the National Government and the Lucio Tan
Group, we would like to advise that PNB is not driving the
process for the Joint Sale but the Joint technical Committee
(JTC) under the Department of Finance and the Philippine Deposit
Insurance Corporation. Hence, we are not privy to any
filings/submissions to the JTC."

NATIONAL BANK: Stake Sale Draws Eight Bidders
---------------------------------------------
Philippine National Bank's stake sale has reportedly attracted
eight prospective bidders, The Manila Standard relates, citing
Finance Secretary Margarito Teves.

The government expects the eight entities to participate in the
tender for the 67-percent stake in PNB held jointly by the
government and the Lucio Tan Group.

Sec. Teves did not identify the interested parties but said the
Ayala's Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI) may be one of the
prospective bidders.

Mr. Tan earlier informed the DoF that the group would exercise
its right of first offer on government's shares on PNB to firm
up his control over the bank. This gives the group the right to
match the highest bid price received from third parties in the
public auction scheduled in August.

The Privatization Council and the board of directors of the
Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp. (PDIC) on June 10 set the
floor price at Php43 per share based on the valuation made by
ING Bank NV. The combined shareholdings of the government and
the Tan Group could raise close to Php16 billion.

The government and the Tan group have a 44.98 percent stake each
in PNB after the approval and implementation of a quasi-
reorganization and debt-to-equity conversion.

The national government owns 45 million common shares of PNB
while PDIC has 140.8 million preferred shares. The Tan group
owns 186 million shares.


NATIONAL BANK: Sale Deal to Cover Losses from Frozen VAT
--------------------------------------------------------
The sale of the government's interest in the Philippine National
Bank (PNB) is expected to help plug the state's Php5-billion
monthly forgone revenues as a result of the suspended
implementation of the expanded value-added tax (VAT) law,
BusinessWorld reports.

Finance Secretary Margarito Teves disclosed that the national
government is focusing on the sale of its PNB stake "as one of
the countermeasures" in view of the delayed VAT implementation.

The government is selling its entire stake in the bank, which
combined with the holdings of businessman Lucio Tan makes up 67
percent of the semiprivate bank's outstanding shares.

The expanded sales tax law, which was supposed to start this
month, was suspended by the Supreme Court following opposition
to some of its provisions.

As the current finance secretary, Mr. Teves also said his goal
is to try to attain a balanced budget by 2008. Because of the
delayed implementation of the expanded VAT law, he said he will
put in place countermeasures such as improving tax collection,
maximizing income, and selling idle assets and government
stocks.


NATIONAL FOOD: Conducts First Electronic Bidding
------------------------------------------------
The National Food Authority (NFA) is poised to auction 100,000
metric tons of imported rice in 15 percent broken grains,
according to The Manila Bulletin.

The electronic bidding will be held simultaneously in Manila,
Cebu and Davao through the Internet on July 21.

NFA Assistant Administrator for Stabilization Conrado Ibanez
said the process will not only entail quicker monitoring of bid
offers from the three bid sites but also cost effective since
bidders from Mindanao or Visayas need not go to Luzon to
participate in the bidding.

"The program is being utilized after we received requests from
bidders in Visayas and Mindanao who find it costly to travel to
Manila, or vice versa, just to participate in public biddings
being conducted by the food agency. Now, interested bidders may
bid from their respective areas without the inconvenience
brought by traveling," Mr. Ibanez said.

The bidding is open to farmers' organizations, retailers and
traders, he added.

NATIONAL POWER: DoE Bullish on Asset Sales
------------------------------------------
Due to the stalled privatization of debt-ridden National Power
Corporation (Napocor), the Department of Energy (DoE) steps up
efforts to brighten up investments prospects for the power
firm's assets, The Manila Bulletin reports.

The energy department has been trying to brush off speculation
the privatization exercise for the ailing Napocor is clouded by
lackluster interest of investors and the on-going political
crisis.

But Energy Secretary Raphael P.M. Lotilla insisted Napocor's
power generating assets has not completely lost potential
investors. He cited that at least two foreign investors are now
setting interest on the 600-megawatt Calaca power plant, after a
failed bidding was declared last June 28 when the interested
parties backed out.

Mr. Lotilla also cited the recent move of Aboitiz Equity
Ventures Inc., (AEV) to team up with Norwegian Company SN Power
Invest AS, which sounded off plants to join bidding in
hydropower plants.

"We have reason to be confident that despite the perceived
political tension in the country, local and foreign investors
have long-term prospects for investment in mind, specifically in
the power sector," the energy chief stressed.

He emphasized that even in the wake of recent political chaos,
there are indications that "investors can see beyond what is
temporary, and are taking a long-term view of the country's
economic prospects."

PHILIPPINE AIRLINES: Seeks Another Fuel Surcharge Hike
------------------------------------------------------
Skyrocketing fuel prices forced Philippine Airlines (PAL) to ask
the Civil Aeronautics Board for a US$15 increase in the fuel
surcharge on long haul trip fares, according to The Philippine
Daily Inquirer.

If approved, the increase would bring the fuel surcharge on
trips to the United States, Canada and Australia to US$37 per
passenger, from the present US$22.

This would be PAL's fourth since in fuel surcharge world oil
prices started going up a year ago.

PAL is keeping its fuel surcharge at US$16 on Middle East
flights and US$14 on all other foreign trips.

Foreign flights account 60 percent of PAL's business. The US
market represents 20 percent of its overseas operations.

Fuel accounts for 40 percent of an airline's operating costs.
Aside from increased oil prices, depreciation of the peso is
also driving the cost of imported fuel.

PAL President Jaime Bautista said the fuel surcharge served as a
temporary relief for airlines amid increases in jet fuel prices.

PHILIPPINE LONG: On Track to Meet Debt Reduction Targets
--------------------------------------------------------
Philippine long Distance telephone Co. (PLDT) said it is most
likely to meet its deleveraging targets this year, according to
The Philippine Star.

The goal includes reduction of debts of the fixed line business
by US$500 million in 2005. The firm earlier said its fixed line
business debt balance as of June 30, 2005 stood at US$1.719
billion.

In the second quarter of 2005 alone, it said that its fixed line
business reduced debts by US$96 million, bringing up the total
debt reduction in the first months of 2005 to US$251 million.
These figures exclude the debts of PLDT's cellular and other
subsidiaries.

Group chairman Manuel Pangilinan, meanwhile, expects that the
fixed line debts should be down to US$1 billion by the end of
2006.

"Our deleveraging has been progressing ahead of schedule and we
expect our net debt position to be strong in 2006. By 2007, we
will have a significant free cash flow for dividends and
investments," he said.

In the January to March 2005 period, PLDT was able to reduce
fixed line debts by $155 million while consolidated debt
declined by US$165 million, due to higher free cash levels.  
Also during the first quarter, PLDT's fixed line business
reported revenues of P11.8 billion, two percent lower than the
Php12.1 billion made last year. Fixed line EBITDA (earnings
before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) remained
at Php6.8 billion as the decline in revenues was offset by a
two-percent drop in cash operating expenses while EBITDA margin
improved to 58 percent.

Capital expenditures for fixed line was at Php2.4 billion in the
first quarter and is expected to reach Php7.5 billion for the
year. Dividends from Smart allowed free cash flow to grow to
Php8 billion.  

The PLDT group posted a consolidated net income of Php9.4
billion in the first quarter, up 65 percent from the Php5.68-
billion income posted in the same period last year.

VICTORIAS MILLING: BPI Inks Debt Restructure Deal
-------------------------------------------------
Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), one of the creditors of
Victorias Milling Company Inc. (VMC), has on July 15, 2005
signed a Debt Restructuring Agreement with VMC.

Victorias Milling Company, Inc. (VMC) was organized in 1919 and
is engaged in the business of acquiring, constructing,
maintaining and operating sugar mills, as well as other related
business activities. It is the largest sugar mill operator in
the Philippines and one of the largest in the Southeast Asian
region. Through the years, the Company has expanded its
operations to include a foundry, a machine shop, a fabrication
shop, a food canning Company, an organic fertilizer plant and a
piggery.

However, the Company has incurred significant losses from
operations, which adversely affected its financial condition and
cash flow position. On July 4, 1997, the Company filed an
application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
for suspension of payments to creditors. On July 8, 1997, the
SEC issued a stay order restraining all creditors of the Company
or any of its subsidiaries from enforcing their claims to allow
the Company or any of its subsidiaries to continue to their
normal business operations.

The SEC also ordered the formation of a Management Committee to
oversee the Company's operations and rehabilitation.
