ACCESS BROKERAGE: Bank of NZ Seeks to Recoup Funds from NZX
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Bank of New Zealand is taking legal proceedings against the
New Zealand stock exchange to recover losses after the collapse
of Access Brokerage last year owing clients NZ$5 million (US$3.5
million), Reuters reports.

The Bank of NZ, owned by National Australia Bank (NAB), says the
stock exchange should have found out about the problems of
Access Brokerage before it went into liquidation. The NZX denied
any liability, but is also insured.

NZX and the Bank of NZ, which held Access's client trust fund,
covered the shortfall in clients' funds after the broking house
was suspended a year ago.

Liquidators Ferrier Hodgson, who are also part of the claim
against NZX, said previously that Access had suffered accounting
discrepancies since at least June 1998 and appeared to have been
using client money to fund the business for some time.

Access manager Peter Marshall has been indicted on 15 charges
following investigation by the Serious Fraud office.

Established in 1986, Access was a low frills, low cost
brokerage, which offered trading services, but not the full
range of research and investment services.

CARTER HOLT: Warns of Profit Fall
---------------------------------
The directors of Carter Holt Harvey Limited advised that
following a review of the Company's 2005 forecast, the price
recovery in some key products that had been expected in the
third quarter has not materialized.

Prices for Bleached Kraft Pulp are US$480 per tonne, Kraft
Linerboard prices are currently at US$425 per tonne, and average
Australian timber realizations are approximately AU$350 per
cubic meter. These prices are at low points for the year.

The impact of a continuation of prices and foreign exchange
rates at or around current levels for the rest of the year
implies that earnings may be down by approximately NZ$25-30
million versus the Company's previous forecast of NZ$283
million. In addition, following the closing of the announced
forest sale, approximately NZ$5 million of earnings will be lost
in the fourth quarter.

The Company is working urgently on additional plans to mitigate
the impact of these adverse price movements.

The current market dynamics have proven difficult to predict and
because of this uncertainty and the takeover process, the
directors have decided that it is important to keep the market
fully informed.

FORTESCUE METALS: Notes Upgrade of Christmas Creek Resource
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fortescue Metals Group Limited advised of an increase in its
Christmas Creek resource estimate to a new total of 1.4 Bt.

Within this overall increase, it is pleased to report a 23%
increase in the amount of Indicated Tonnes to 809 Mt (as
classified under JORC). This represents a significant increase
in the confidence levels of resource estimate determination as
defined under JORC and reflects the focus that Fortescue has
been applying to its infill drilling program to facilitate the
further upgrading of its initial exploration campaign.

Fortescue is continuing its aggressive drilling program with the
objective of generating further resource detail to provide for
further tonnage increases up to Indicated status and potentially
further up the confidence curve to Measured status as defined
under the JORC code. It was recently announced by Intierra
Resource Information that for the second quarter running,
Fortescue has been rate as making the largest investment in
exploration of any listed exploration company in Australia.

This new resource statement follows that previously lodged with
the ASX in July 2005 and is based on geological and
mineralization interpretations completed by August 16, 2005 and
then forwarded to Fortescue's independent advisor Snowden Mining
Industry Consultants (Snowden) for further modeling.

Fortescue can report a 17% increase in the resource tonnage that
sits within the "high grade" category for Christmas Creek which
is now at 465 Mt. This categorization has been determined as the
amount of resource within a mineralization envelope that has an
average iron grade of 60.4% which and is considered by
Fortescue's Head of Resource Strategy Dr. John Clout, as being
potentially acceptable to the market without the need for
benefication. The balance of resource that will require some
benefication to achieve a targeted shipping grade of 60% has
been independently trialed by Roche Mining MT and is amenable to
upgrade under standard Pilbara processing methods.

The increase in the Christmas Creek resource estimate now means
that Fortescue has some 806 Mt of high grade resource within its
initial mine plan area of Christmas Creek, Cloud Break and Mt.
Lewin. This area has a total resource estimate of 2.3 Bt
represented as 809 Mt. Indicated and 1,532 Mt Inferred with an
average Fe grade of 58.1%.

Fortescue advised that there are currently drilling rigs at its
Cloud Break deposit with infill drilling and sample analysis
ongoing. Fortescue expects to report on this drilling campaign
in the near term at which time the Company anticipates to
provide an upgrade to the Cloud Break resource estimate.

H.H.S. PTY: ASIC Freezes Assets
-------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
obtained orders, ex parte, in the Supreme Court of New South
Wales to freeze a bank account operated by H.H.S. Pty Ltd (HHS).

ASIC commenced proceedings against HHS and its director, Mr Hugh
Charles Gordon following concerns that proceeds from the sale of
assets of Whet Investments Ltd (Whet) were deposited into an HHS
bank account. Mr. Gordon is also a director of Whet, which is in
voluntary administration.

On 23 May 2005, in the course of separate proceedings by ASIC
against Whet and Mr. Gordon, Whet gave undertakings to the NSW
Supreme Court that, among other things, it would not deal with
any assets under its control other than in the ordinary course
of business or for reasonable legal expenses of and incidental
to those proceedings (refer ASIC Media Release 05-139:
Investigating accountant appointed to Newcastle investment
company).

The matter is due to return to the NSW Supreme Court for further
hearing on 14 September 2005 when ASIC will also be seeking to
appoint a provisional liquidator to HHS.


INTERNATIONAL WINE: Incurs Annual Net Loss
------------------------------------------
The International Wine Investment Fund on Monday posted a net
loss of AU$5.5 million (US$4.25 million) for the current fiscal
year, Asia Pulse reports. The result is significantly lower from
an AU$9.64-million net loss in the previous year.

The wine fund said it has a sound base for growth now that it
has restructured its management and bought out dissident
shareholders.

The current financial year was filled with bickering among
shareholders over the future of the fund, which invests in wine
producers and distributors internationally. The issue was
resolved when the wine fund's responsible entity Berren Asset
Management proposed a large-scale redemption offer scale, giving
unhappy unitholders the chance to sell out. The offer reduced
the number of units on issue from more than 63 million to just
22.54 million.

The wine fund has also formed a new investment committee
including Geoff Wilson of Wilson Asset Management, a company
that has been appointed as an external investment adviser for an
initial five-year period.

Among other changes, both the fund's acting Chief Executive
Rupert Clifton-Bligh and Chief Financial Officer Jerry Lim
resigned in June. The fund was undergoing a wide-ranging review
of expenses and was also searching for a new director.

A string of numerous shareholder meetings and redemption offer
led to total costs of AU$2.81 million for the wine fund for the
year to June 30, 2005.

Net profit was also impacted by a writedown of AU$4.53 million
after an independent valuation of certain unlisted investments
in preparation for the transition to international accounting
standards on July 1, 2005.

The wine fund declared a final distribution of 6.5 cents per
unit, partly franked, taking total distributions for the year to
11 cents, up from 10 cents in the prior year.

MAYNE GROUP: To Keep Pharma Unit's Growth Strategy
--------------------------------------------------
The growth strategy for Mayne Group Ltd's pharmaceuticals
division was not expected to change after the business is
demerged from the company's domestic healthcare operations, the
Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The demerger of the global injectible pharmaceuticals business
Mayne Pharma from the domestic healthcare businesses is expected
to be completed later in 2005, Mayne chief executive Stuart
James said in the company's 2004/05 annual report.

While the planned demerger process will separate Mayne Pharma
from the rest of Mayne Group Ltd towards the end of 2005, there
will be no change to the business's high-growth strategy, which
will be achieved through continued, steady investment in
existing and new assets.

Last month, Mayne announced that former Aventis Pharma vice-
president Thierry Soursac would become CEO and managing director
for Mayne Pharma, pending Mayne's shareholders approving the
proposed demerger of Mayne Pharma from the domestic healthcare
operations (diagnostics, pharmacies and consumer products).

Mayne chairman Peter Willcox said the two separate companies
would have different investment profiles.

The domestic businesses had a history of stable earnings and
cashflows and would have a policy of paying a higher proportion
of profits as dividends than Mayne Pharma.

Mayne Pharma participated in the higher-growth and more volatile
generic pharmaceuticals industry, where success depended upon
getting approved products to market quickly and maintaining a
globally competitive supply chain.

"Mayne Pharma is therefore likely to reinvest most of its
profits back into its business to continue its growth
trajectory, and, consequently, is expected to have a lower
dividend payout ratio than Mayne's domestic businesses over the
long term," Mr Willcox said.

According to the annual report, Mr. James received a total
remuneration of AU$4.21 million for the 2004/05 year, including
AU$1.92 million in incentive payments. He received a total
remuneration of AU$4.07 million in 2003/04.

MILLER'S RETAIL: May Merge with Warehouse Ahead of Bigger Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Warehouse Group's plans to sell its Australian operations to
ailing Miller's Retail is likely to materialize following the
former's AU$30-million write-down of its 122 Australian stores,
according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

In the past year, New Zealand-based Warehouse Group stemmed
losses from its Australian operations by improving merchandize
and cutting costs. This resulted in an AU$5.4-million loss in
Australia for the year to July 31, down from a loss of AU$32.2
million the previous year.

Miller's Retail and Warehouse was reportedly planning to merge
their operations in preparation for the sale of combined
discount stores to a private equity firm.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: CEO's Pay Rises 3%
----------------------------------
Qantas Airways Limited paid Chief Executive Geoff Dixon 3
percent more last year, taking his total compensation to AU$3.7
million, according to Bloomberg News.

Mr. Dixon received AU$1.9 million in salary, with the rest made
up of bonuses and other benefits.

He has been on the airline's board since August 2000 and has led
the company since March 2001.

Last month, Mr. Dixon reported a 5% gain in second-half net
income of the airline, reflecting cost cuts and hedging against
fuel prices, which helped avoid losses incurred by rivals such
as Thai Airways International Pcl.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd, Asia's second most profitable
carrier, posted a drop in first-half net income on fuel costs
and Virgin Blue Holdings Ltd, Qantas' only domestic competitor,
cut its forecast, citing fuel costs and more rivalry.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: Senator Seeks Time Out on Sale
---------------------------------------------------
Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce has called for more time to
study the legislation relating to a fund for bush
telecommunications before he agrees to the full sale of Telstra
Corporation, The Australian reports.

The Government wanted to pass the enabling bill through the
Parliament as quickly as possible.

But Senator Joyce, whose vote is crucial to passing the
legislation in the Australian Senate, said he wants the bill
revised. He warned he would withdraw support for the Telstra
sale unless it was amended to guarantee a telecommunications
bush fund was worth at least AU$2 billion.

The senator was angry upon learning through a Senate inquiry on
Friday that the trust fund set up for the bush does not
necessarily contain the AU$2 billion promised.

Senator Joyce said that element of the bill will have to be
changed. He added that Friday's one-day Senate inquiry into the
sale bill was inadequate.

He was also worried about an investigation by the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) into a secret
Telstra document handed to the government last month detailing a
string of problems plaguing the telco.

CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Wins Nod to Cut Retail Shares in Offering
-------------------------------------------------------------
China Construction Bank (CCB), which is proceeding with its US$5
billion public offering later this year, was granted by the Hong
Kong Stock Exchange to cut the shares it must sell to retail
investors, Bloomberg News reports.

Given its size, CCB is allowed to offer just 5 percent of its
sale shares to local retail investors rather than the 10 percent
required by the listing rules.

CCB, the first IPO by one of China's "big four" state-owned
banks, will be the largest of the year to raise not less than
US$5 billion from its first overseas sale.

The lender has already secured two major investors, Bank of
America, with a US$500 million pledge, and the Singapore
government's investment arm, Temasek, which has committed US$1
billion to the IPO and another US$1.4 billion in direct
investment.

GUANGDONG KELON: Auditor Releases Independent Review Report
-----------------------------------------------------------
BDO McCabe Lo Limited, Certified Public Accountants of Guangdong
Kelon Electrical Holdings Company Limited, have been instructed
by Guangdong Kelon Electrical Holdings Company Limited to review
the interim financial report of the, comprising the Company and
its subsidiaries.

RESPECTIVE RESPONSIBILITIES OF DIRECTORS AND AUDITORS

The Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock
Exchange of Hong Kong Limited require the preparation of an
interim financial report to be in compliance with International
Accounting Standard 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" and the
relevant provisions thereof. The interim financial report is the
responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors.

It is our responsibility to form an independent conclusion,
based on our review, on the interim financial report, and to
report our conclusion solely to you, as a body, in accordance
with our agreed terms of engagement, and for no other purpose.

We do not assume responsibility towards or accept liability to
any other person for the contents of this report.

REVIEW WORK PERFORMED

We conducted our review in accordance with Statements of
Auditing Standards No. 700 "Engagements to Review Interim
Financial Reports" issued by the Hong Kong Institute of
Certified Public Accountants, except that the scope of our
review was limited as explained below.

A review consists principally of making enquiries of group
management and applying analytical procedures to the interim
financial report and based thereon, assessing whether the
accounting policies and presentation have been consistently
applied unless otherwise disclosed. A review excludes audit
procedures such as tests of controls and verification of assets,
liabilities and transactions. It is substantially less in scope
than an audit and therefore provides a lower level of assurance
than an audit. Accordingly we do not express an audit pinion on
the interim financial report.

The scope of our review was limited as follows:

- Subsequent to our appointment as auditors of the Company and
during the course of our review of the interim financial report,
five of the Company's senior management, including the Company's
former chairman, an executive director and vice president, and
other senior management responsible for finance became formally
investigated by the police department of the People's Republic
of China (the PRC police department investigation) and subject
to procedures adopted by the PRC police department in connection
with criminal offences, for alleged economic crime and could not
be contacted. As a result, these key management were unavailable
for our enquiry. Alternatively, we were unable to obtain all the
necessary explanations and assurances concerning the interim
financial report from the remaining directors and management. We
were therefore unable to conduct all of the appropriate and
sufficient enquiries and obtain reasonable explanations and
representations for the purpose of our review.

- As previously announced by the Company, on April 5, 2005 the
China Securities and Regulatory Commission (CSRC) commenced
formal investigation into the Company for alleged breaches of
securities laws and regulations in the PRC (the CSRC
investigation) the result of which has not yet been announced as
at the date of this report. The Company noted that the CSRC
investigation raised certain matters that may impact on the
Group's 2005 interim results and which may require adjustment of
the interim financial report.

Since we are not provided with details of the progress and
substantial findings of the investigation, we are unable to
ascertain whether a modification to the interim financial report
is necessary.

- The CSRC investigation, the PRC police department's
investigation into the former chairman and other senior members
of management, the Group's recent litigations with banks and
other creditors and a significant disruption of the Group's
operations since May 2005 are matters of an unusual nature.
We are therefore unable to apply the necessary analytical
procedures or in the alternative, additional other procedures
and draw appropriate conclusions there from for the purpose of
our review.

In particular, the limitation in scope of our review resulted in
our inability to conclude if material modification would have
been necessary on, but not limited to, the following balances:

1. We were unable to obtain sufficient evidence and explanations
for us to determine whether opening balances at 1 January 2005
of property, plant and equipment have been properly brought
forward to the current period as we were unable to obtain
certain underlying records supporting the amounts of property,
plant and equipment as stated in the Company's consolidated
financial statements as at December 31, 2004.

2. In their report to the shareholders of the financial
statements for the year ended December 31, 2004, the Company's
predecessor auditors have expressed the view that they were
unable to satisfy themselves as to the validity of sales to two
customers in the PRC for the year ended December 31, 2004 and
their related accounts receivable as at that date as a result of
which the predecessor auditors were unable to satisfy themselves
as to whether sales for the year ended December 31, 2004 and
trade receivables as at that date were free from material
misstatement. The interim financial report for the six months
ended June 30, 2005 includes a restatement of the 2004 financial
statements to reflect the reversal of sales to and the related
receivable balances from these two customers based on the
subsequent return of goods from these two customers. The
restatement has the effect of reducing turnover for the year
ended December 31, 2004 by approximately RMB431 million and
trade receivables at December 31, 2004 by the same amount and
increasing loss for the year ended December 31, 2004 by
approximately RMB112 million. The appropriateness of these
restatements will have a material impact on the interim
financial report for the six months ended June 30, 2005. Due to
the limitation in our review as stated above, we were unable to
conclude whether the restatements and their respective amounts
are appropriate.

3. The Company considers that the CSRC investigation, the PRC
police department investigation and the Company's internal
investigation indicate that there could be omissions of
recording and disclosure of material related party transactions
during the six months ended June 30, 2005 and earlier periods
arising from a circumvention of the Group's established policies
and procedures by certain directors and senior management. This
may result in amounts due from related parties, other
receivables and other payables as at June 30, 2005 being
materially misstated in their gross and recoverable amounts and
classification. However, pending conclusion of the various
investigations, whether or not there are misstatements, and if
so their amounts, are not yet determinable.

4. The Group's incursion of losses for the year ended December
31, 2004 and the six months ended June 30, 2005, a significant
disruption of its production in 2005, the CRSC investigation,
the PRC police investigation into its former Chairman and other
senior management and the existence of significant litigations
involving its bankers and other creditors are indicators that
the Group's assets might have been impaired as at June 30, 2005.
While the Company acknowledges that there could have been
impairments in the carrying amounts of its assets namely
property, plant and equipment, interest in associates,
intangible assets and goodwill as stated in the balance sheet,
the unusual and uncertain circumstances of the Company at June
30, 2005 and up to the date of this report prevent a proper
evaluation of recoverable amounts at June 30, 2005. As a result,
the interim financial report may require modification arising
from a write-down of the carrying amounts of property, plant and
equipment, interest in associates, intangible assets and
goodwill stated on the balance sheet and the recognition of an
impairment loss in the income statement should it be
subsequently determined that impairment had occurred.

FUNDAMENTAL UNCERTAINTY RELATING TO THE GOING CONCERN BASIS

The Group incurred losses of approximately RMB457 million and
RMB167 million (restated) for the six months ended 30 June 2005
and year ended 31 December 2004, respectively. As at 30 June
2005, the Group's current liabilities exceeded its current
assets by approximately RMB929 million. In addition, the Group
has outstanding short-term loans in the aggregate of
approximately RMB2,437 million of which approximately RMB240
million were overdue as at June 30, 2005 and approximately
RMB1,420 million will fall due in December 2005. As stated in
the Company's announcement dated August 26, 2005, litigations
have been brought against the Group by certain banks and other
creditors claiming an aggregate amount of approximately RMB552
million. The Group is in the process of negotiating with certain
banks and other creditors to restructure the amounts due to
them.

Provided that the above restructuring with banks and other
creditors can be successfully implemented and the Group can
obtain sufficient operating funds, the directors are satisfied
that the Group will have sufficient working capital to finance
its normal operations and to meet its financial obligations as
they fall due for the foreseeable future. The interim financial
report is prepared on a going concern basis, the validity of
which depends upon future funding being available.

The interim financial report does not include any adjustments
that would result from the failure to obtain such funding.

INABILITY TO REACH A REVIEW CONCLUSION

Because of the significance of the possible effect of the
limitations in evidence available to us, we are unable to reach
a review conclusion as to whether material modifications should
be made to the interim financial report for the six months ended
June 30, 2005.

NAM FONG: Nanyang Withdraws Winding Up Petition
-----------------------------------------------
Reference is made to the announcements dated May 17, 2005, May
30, 2005, June 6, 2005 and June 13, 2005 of Nam Fong
International Holdings Limited regarding a winding-up petition
(the Petition) by Nanyang Commercial Bank, Limited (NCB) against
the Company.

The Company wishes to announce that on June 20, 2005, NCB
withdrew the Petition. A dismissal order was granted by the High
Court at the same day. Source of settlement funds came from
realization of the secured property pursuant to the judicial
forceful execution, the consideration of which would be used to
repay NCB the amounts outstanding first.

The Background

The Company executed a deed of guarantee on July 29, 1997 to
guarantee a loan for not exceeding HK$80,000,000 for a term of 5
years (the Loan) from NCB to Guangzhou Sui Nan Property
Development Company Limited (GZ Sui Nan), a wholly-owned
subsidiary of the Company, and had certain shops premises in
zone 2C of Liwan Plaza, Guangzhou, The People's Republic of
China, with gross floor areas of 4,731.87 sq. m. as security
(the Secured Property). The Loan was for GZ Sui Nan's business
development. As GZ Sui Nan was unable to repay the amounts
overdue pursuant to the adjudication by the Intermediate
People's Court of Guangzhou City of Guangdong Province of The
People's Republic of China (the People's Court) on 1 November
1999, the People's Court granted NCB with judicial forceful
execution (Adjudication (2000) No. 709 of the People Court) (the
`Judicial Forceful Execution), under which NCB was authorized to
deal with the Secured Property with privilege right for
repayment.

In May 2005, the Company and GZ Sui Nan negotiated with NCB
regarding the full and final settlement of the Loan and the
dismissal of the Petition. NCB and GZ Sui Nan agreed to realize
the Secured Property (the Realization) pursuant to the Judicial
Forceful Execution to an independent third party, Glory Holdings
Limited (GHL), at a consideration of HK$33,000,000 (equivalent
to RMB35,000,000) (the "Consideration") that would be used to
repay NCB first with any remaining balance as the group's
general working capital. NCB, GZ Sui Nan and GHL reached a
verbal agreement regarding the Realization that among the
Consideration, RMB20,000,000 would be used to repay NCB (the
Full and Final Settlement) and the remaining balance as the
group's general working capital. GHL, based on the verbal
agreement among three parties, paid RMB19,000,000 and
RMB1,000,000 to NCB on behalf of GZ Sui Nan on 28 May 2005 and
20 June 2005 respectively.

On June 20, 2005, the Company, GZ Sui Nan and NCB entered into a
letter of settlement that NCB agreed to accept RMB20,000,000 as
the full and final settlement of the Loan (including principal,
interest repayment and penalty interest), confirmed there is no
outstanding obligation and liability due by the Company and GZ
Sui Nan to NCB and dismissed the Petition. A dismissal order was
granted by the High Court on the same day.

On June 24, 2004, NCB, GZ Sui Nan and GHL entered in an
agreement in connection with the Realization with terms and
conditions as follows:

Date of the Agreement: June 24, 2005

The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the Stock Exchange)
(the Independent Third Party); and (iii) NCB : an organization

(iii) The balance of RMB15,000,000 will be paid to GZ Sui Nan
upon completion.

As at December 31, 2004, the market value of Guangzhou Liwan
Plaza was approximately HKD735,000,000 with total floor areas
71,278 sq. m. The Secured Property represents approximately
6.64% of the total floor areas. All the obligations and
liabilities due to NCB under the Loan (book value as at 31
December 2004 is HKD31,277,000) is released by the payment of
the Full and Final Settlement. Before consideration of all the
necessary expenses and charges, the cash inflow is approximately

IBP COMPANY: To Merge with IOC in Six Months
--------------------------------------------
The planned merger of IBP Company Limited and parent Indian Oil
Corporation (IOC) is expected to materialize within six months,
according to Deccan Herald.

IOC Chairman Sarthak Behuria said that the company would receive
the Cabinet approval on the merger within a month and then it
will start working on the merger procedures.

The reason for the delay, according to Mr. Behuria, was owing to
the questions raised by the finance and disinvestments
ministries on the issue of the exchange ratio of stocks between
Indian Oil and IBP.

Mr. Behuria confirmed the proposal was already approved by the
IOC, but hit a snag with some ministers raising objection to the
proposed swap ratio. However, the swap ratio of 125 IOC shares
for 100 IBP has finally been agreed and the issue of under-
recovery from the sale of petroleum products has not affected
the approval.

Besides, IOC will be taking over IBP's LPG business to reduce
the subsidy burden on the company though the IBP brand will be
retained.

IBP posted a turnover of around INR14,000 crore during 2004-05
as against INR11,000 crore in the previous financial year. The
gross profit of the company was INR83 crore as against INR332
crore in 2003-04.

Citra Marga's mission statement is as follows: "We are in the
business of providing infrastructure solutions that enable or
enhance the sustainable of economic development through the

also other infrastructure such as telecommunication,
transportation, property, road, pipe lines, electricity, water,
oil, gas and others.

On September 2002, the Company initiated a corporate
restructuring as a part of its transformation process towards a
more streamlined structure supporting the new goal of
`infrastructure solution enterprise' by upholding the aspect of
efficiency, effectiveness and preserve the sustainability of the
Company in the 21st century. The in-depth examination course of

companies with a wider product scope to include
telecommunications, transportation, properties, roads,
pipelines, electricity, dam, oil and gas etc.

investments and PT. Global Network Investindo for infrastructure
investments outside the toll road construction.

GARUDA INDONESIA: Posts Seven-month IDR421-Bln Net Loss
-------------------------------------------------------
For the first seven months of 2005, state owned airline PT
Garuda Indonesia incurred a whopping net loss of IDR421 billion
despite posting its first profit in July, reports Antara News.

Its net loss for the first half of 2005 is over 50% of its
IDR269 net loss last year, but the Company has started to show a
positive trend, and posted a IDR87 billion net profit in July.
Total revenue is expected to reach IDR1.05 billion.

According to Garuda communications officer Pudjobroto, the
Company amis to break even this year. Company president Emirsyah
Satar hopes that the weakening of the local currency and
increasing oil prices will not affect its performance that much.

Despite the fact that 25% of the Company's domestic flights are
losing, Garuda has managed to incur profits from 7% of its
routes. Seat load factor has also risen from 65% to 74%.
Management has increased flights to several cities in China, and
the Company evaluates its flight routes on a weekly basis.

In order to to support operations, Garuda Indonesia is planning
to buy three new Boeing 737-800 aircraft next year. The Company
currently operates 48 Boeing 737 airplanes. Company finance
director Alex Maneklarana is also confident that Garuda will be
able to meet its break-even goal, as the second half of the year
is usuallu peak season for the airline.

GARUDA INDONESIA: Proposes 5-Year Debt Rescheduling to Creditors
----------------------------------------------------------------
Troubled state airline PT Garuda Indonesia will propose a five-
year debt rescheduling plan to its European Credit Agency Agency
(ECA) creditors later this month, AFX News reports.

Garuda president Emirsyah Satar said that they would present the
business plan to creditors to reschedule its IDR5.23 trillion
debt.

The Compant signed a IDR15.12 trillion debt restructuring deal
with the ECA and other creditors in 2001, to extend its debt
reapyment period from 12 years to 16 years. The Company pays
IDR1.11 trillion in annual principal and interest payments.

Although the Company has incurred an operating loss of IDR421
billion for the first half of 2005, it is optimistic that things
will pick up in the second half of the year, which is peak
season.

According to Company president Satar, the debt rescheduling plan
is a win-win solution for both the Company and its creditors.


PERTAMINA: Admits Only Low-ranking Staff Smuggled Fuel
------------------------------------------------------
The board of directors of state-owned oil and gas firm PT
Pertamina announced that oil theft and smuggling in the Company
was committed by low-ranking officials, 12 of whom were already
discharged, reports the Jakarta Post.

According to the Company, some of those involved in fuel
smuggling were a cook, security officer, and a driver, while
five were contract employees.

Port supervision chief Sumardiyono was the highest-rakned
official discharged so far, in the Company's disclosure of names
in order to protect its credibility.

Pertamina president Widya Purnama made the announcement after
being called by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to
explain the matter, after local police found evidence of
Pertamina officials' involvement in smuggling operations in
several parts of the country, as well as the involvement of
foreign nationals from China and Singapore.

The fuel smuggling caused IDR8.8 trillion in annual state
losses.

Despite the fact that only lower-rank officials were charged
with smuggling, the Company is still questioning several middle-
and high-ranking officials on the case, with Mr. Purnama
prmising that the investigation would be transparent, and that
he was willing to resign if asked to do so.

So far, there have been no indications of the involovement of
Pertamina's high-ranking officials in the smuggling case. The
President has asked the Company not to cover up the involvement
of its provincial directors in the smuggling case, but its not
certain whether he requested full accountability from its board
of directors.

PERTAMINA: To Release New Evidence in Oil Smuggling Case
--------------------------------------------------------
State oil firm PT Pertamina is set to release new evidence
relating to a recent investigation of fuel smuggling soon, in
attempts to uncover and arrest the mastermind of the case,
reports Asia Pulse.

According to Pertamina spokesman M. Harun, the perpetrators of
the smuggling case pumped 6,000 tons of crude oil fro the Lawe-
Lawe terminal in East Kalimantan Province through the Company's
marine oil pipeline, and then transported the oil into tankers.

Based on police investigations, the crime was made possible by
the involvement of 11 Pertamina employees, who have been already
charged by the Company, and may be declared suspects once the
investigation is concluded.

The smuggled oil was found aboard Korean ship MV Tioman, which
was apprehended by navy patrol last Aug. 31, 2005.

Some 18 other Pertamina employees had previously been arrested
for their involvement in the smuggling operation, bringing the
total of those arrested in the case to 29.

Pertamina president Emirsyah Satar has said that he is willing
to take full responsibility for the Company in the smuggling
case and would resign if asked to do so.


PERTAMINA: Spends IDR707.98 Bln to Import Crude Oil
---------------------------------------------------
State oil firm PT Pertamina needs up to IDR707.98 billion daily
to spend on oil imports in order to meet domestic demand, Asia
Pulse reports.

According to Pertamina president Widya Purnama, Indonesia
consumes 1.1 million barrels of fuel oil and 1.05 million
barrels of crude oil on a daily basis. In order to meet such
needs, the Company needs to import up to 600,000 barrels of
crude oil per day, while it also import 400,000 barrels of fuel
oil as domestic crude oil outputs produce only 700,000 barrels
of fuel oil.

The Company currently spends IDR566.5 billion to import oil
since global fuel prices have now reached USD70 per barrel, but
it buys dollars through the Finance Ministry and not from the
market, so it did not cause the weakening of the local currency.

In order to reduce oil imports, the Company is slated to
increase local production through its oil refineries that are
set to repoen after a temporary shutdown, and the opening of
three new refineries later in the year.

Pertamina is also using new technology to reopen 41 old fuel
wells which would produce 1,000 barrels of crude oil daily. The
Company supports efforts to make use of renewable energy in
order to reduce fossil fuel consumption.

HITACHI LIMITED: In Negotiations to Form Chip Venture
-----------------------------------------------------
Hitachi Limited is in talks with Toshiba Corporation and other
companies to set up a venture to produce made-to-order chips,
Bloomberg News reports, citing Hitachi President Etsuhiko
Shoyama.

The Nihon Keizai newspaper reported earlier that the venture
would spend as much as JPY300 billion ($2.7 billion) to build a
factory, which will open in 2007, without saying where it got
the information. Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., NEC
Electronics Corporation and Renesas Technology Corp., owned by
Hitachi and Mitsubishi Electric Corp., may join the project, the
report said.

Japanese chipmakers have been losing market share to Asian
rivals because they have been unable to compete on costs. Taiwan
Semiconductor is the world's largest supplier of made-to-order
chips, while United Microelectronics Corp. is the second
biggest.

ASIANA AIRLINES: Receives Compulsory Arbitration from Government
----------------------------------------------------------------
The 10-member committee of the National Labor Relations
Committee presented a compulsory arbitration to Asiana Airlines'
union and management to end their months-long dispute, Asia
Pulse relates citing Yonhap News.

The government tried to let both parties solve the conflict on
their own, but since Asiana management and labor union failed to
reach a compromise over their working conditions, the committee
had to step in.  

The compulsory arbitration supports the union's demand for the
gradual reduction of flight hours, but denies its claim for a
say in managerial decisions, particularly on the recruiting of
pilots and discipline.

Also the arbitration disallows the extension of pilots' current
retirement age of 55 and limits the transfer of various fines on
the carrier to pilots and double penalties that can be brought
on by their violation of the aviation law.

The compulsory arbitration has taken effect last Saturday.

ABS-CBN BROADCASTING: Says Union Won't Strike to Oppose Job Cuts
----------------------------------------------------------------
ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation's rank-and-file union is
withdrawing a planned industrial action in protest to impending
job cuts, BusinessWorld relates.

Contrary to earlier media reports, the management of ABS-CBN
confirmed that the ABS-CBN Employees Union submitted a letter to
the Labor department Friday last week to withdraw the notice of
strike the union filed earlier.

The rank-and-file union of ABS-CBN filed a notice of preventive
mediation with the National Conciliation and Mediation Board of
the Labor department late last month in relation to the
company's special separation program.

The firm reportedly plans to lay off 20 percent of its 1,800-
strong work force by next month.

Last week, the union withdrew its preventive mediation notice
and instead opted to pursue a notice of strike it had filed at
the Labor department.

A Labor official said the union decided to pursue the notice of
strike after management would not give in to the union's demand
to stop the job cuts.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Officials Ask Clients to Seek SEC Leniency
-------------------------------------------------------------
College Assurance Plan's (CAP) officials asked planholders in
Northern Luzon to pressure the corporate regulator into giving
the pre-need firm leniency to enable it to sell its frozen
assets and pay its obligations for this year, The Philippine
Daily Inquirer reports.

On Saturday a group of planholders picketed a conference of
regional CAP managers in Baguio until they were allowed to speak
to CAP officials.

Jose Montoya, CAP senior vice president, told planholders that
selling CAP assets is the pre-need firm's immediate solution to
its trust fund's current shortfall. Reports place this shortfall
at Php17 billion, which is computed from an estimated Php25.6-
billion liability.

Mr. Montoya asked the plan holders for a five-day reprieve to
allow CAP time to await the decision of a Makati Regional Trial
Court regarding their petition to pursue an eight-year
rehabilitation plan instead of a SEC-supervised management
overhaul.

The SEC has suspended CAP's dealer license over allegations that
it mishandled its trust fund.

Mr. Montoya also asked each of the planholders to pressure the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) into granting CAP its
dealer's license so it can negotiate terms with new investors.

Around 70 percent of CAP's plan holders have reportedly stopped
paying their insurance dues, and the remaining 30 percent of
planholders pay intermittently because of the credibility issues
SEC raised against all pre-need firms.

But plan holders are studying their options. The picketing group
acknowledged that petitioning SEC on behalf of CAP might
compromise the investigation and prosecution of the firm.

LEPANTO CONSOLIDATED: Sees End to 3-month Labor Row
---------------------------------------------------
The three-month strike at Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company
finally came to an end after union leaders and the management
signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) over the weekend,
according to SunStar Daily.

The MOA materialized after the last bout of negotiations between
the two parties on September 3 and 4.

The MOA stated that the 19 dismissed officers of the Lepanto
Employees Union (LEU) should accept their termination from
service for leading the strike. Part of the agreement would be
for both parties to drop charges and counter-charges against
each other.

The MOA stated that LEU and the management recognized the need
to establish and foster industrial peace and unhampered
operations to promote productivity.

Likewise, the present officers will continue to discharge their
functions until their successors will have taken their oath; and
that both parties will agree to conclude the 23rd bargaining
agreement, which started in November 2004 and ended in a
deadlock in May 2005.

On April 5, the LEU filed a notice of strike before the Office
of the National Mediation and Conciliation Board in Cordillera
on the basis of a deadlock in their collective bargaining
agreement (CBA) after a series of negotiations that went futile
following the company's refusal to approve some provisions of
the CBA.

On April 20, the union staged a strike vote referendum where 95
percent of the membership agreed to strike. A series of
conciliation meetings were conducted in an attempt to resolve
the dispute but both parties failed to reach any agreement. The
long-standing industrial action began June 2.

The company and the union filed criminal charges and counter-
charges against each other due to alleged coercion, direct
assault on the part of the company and alleged human rights
violations against the company and the police on the part of the
union.

NATIONAL POWER: Fires Up Assets Sale
------------------------------------
The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM)
is speeding up the disposal of at least half of the generating
assets of the state-run National Power Corporation (Napocor) by
year-end and complete its privatization program by late 2006,
The Philippine Star has learned.

PSALM, the agency tasked to handle Napocor's privatization, aims
to sell to the private sector this year around 50 percent of the
power firm's generating assets. The assets comprise more than
1,300 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity of five major power
facilities, including several decommissioned plants.

PSALM has re-arranged the scheduled sale of the power plants. It
has decided to put on the auction block this year the power
facilities that are saleable to investors. If the sale is
successful, the agency will meet 50 percent of their target.

To date, only 14 percent of Napocor's power generation assets
were privatized.

This year, the 600-MW Calaca coal-fired thermal power plant in
Batangas, 112-MW Pantabangan-Masiway hydro complex in Nueva
Ecija and the 585-MW Tiwi-Makban geothermal complex in Albay and
Laguna.

Among the decommissioned plants, PSALM will sell the Manila and
Bataan thermal plants, Cebu and General Santos diesel-fired
power plants.

With a revised privatization schedule, PSALM is confident it can
sell 100 percent of Napocor's generating assets by end-September
next year.

PACIFIC PLANS: RCBC Denies Negative Effect of Rehab Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) issued an
announcement in reference to a news article entitled "RCBC
deposits fall 5.6% on Pacific Plans backlash", which appeared in
the Daily Tribune on September 9, 2005, specifically on the
following paragraph:

"The ill will generated by the financial rehabilitation of
Pacific Plans, Inc. has proven costly in terms of depositors
confidence to Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC) which
reported a 5.6 percent drop in deposits over a three-month
period this year equal to Php8 billion. Financial data released
by RCBC and obtained by reporters show its deposits shrinking to
just Php135.425 billion at end-June versus Php143.439 billion at
end-March."

RCBC insisted there was no ill will generated by the
rehabilitation plan of Pacific Plans Incorporated (PPI). There
were deep apprehensions, which are currently bring addressed by
PPI's management. The bank acknowledged there was a drop in the
Bank's deposit base as stated in the article and indeed, it was
an aftermath of the PPI issue. As stated, the drop was single
digit and it is attributable to PPI's quick and immediate
response to the matter tempering any possible adverse impact
that may have ensued on RCBC.

SWIFT FOODS: Expects to Bounce Back to Black This Year
------------------------------------------------------
Struggling Swift Foods Inc. expects to post a turnaround this
year due to positive performance of its poultry export
operation, BusinessWorld reports.

The Company is confident its Cagayan de Oro plant, which is the
largest and most modern of its kind in the whole Asia, can
produce enough broiler meat products for the export market.

Swift Foods Chairman Jose S. Conception said the fully automated
dressing facility can slaughter 8,000 birds per hour. He added
the plant received an ISO (International Organization fro
Standardization) certification for outstanding management and
compliance with the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point
standard.

In 2004, Swift suffered a ballooning net loss of Php567.41
million from Php392.17 in the previous year mainly due to the
bird flu outbreak. Raw material prices also hit an all-time high
in 2004, putting pressure on costs and gross margin.

The bird flu and soaring raw material prices resulted in a
surplus in the market, which led to unprecedented levels of
frozen inventory of the industry during the year.

According to Swift, the supply situation was further aggravated
when the government temporarily lifted the safeguard measure
during the second and third quarter of the year and allowed
entry of more imported chicken, particularly low-priced leg
quarters, into the country.
