                                       For the six months 
                                          ended 30 June

3. Taxation

   Pursuant to the relevant regulations of the PRC, a high-
   technology enterprise ("HTE") located in a designated area
   of Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone 
   ("BETDZ") is subject to Enterprise Income Tax ("EIT") at a
   rate of 15%. Moreover, upon approval by the relevant local 
   tax bureau, such a HTE is entitled to an exemption from EIT
   for the first three years from its commencement of operations 
   and a 50% reduction for the three years thereafter. The 
   certification as a HTE is subject to an annual review by the
   relevant government bodies. In addition, an amount equal to
   the EIT exemption or reduction from 15% has to be appropriated
   to a non-distributable tax reserve.
   In March 2002, the Company renewed its HTE certification granted
   by Beijing Science Technology Committee for the years of 2002 
   and 2003. The Company was registered in the BETDZ and has 
   obtained an approval from the BETDZ Local Tax Bureau 
   ("BETDZ LTB") (Document Jingdishuikaijianmianfa [2000] No.23) 
   to enjoy an EIT exemption for three years commencing from 2000 
   and a 50% reduction in EIT for the three years thereafter. In
   October 2002, Beijing Administration of Taxation issued a 
   circular, namely Jingguoshuihan [2002] No. 632, stating that a 
   HTE can enjoy the preferential tax treatment only if both the 
   registration and operation are in the designated area. However, 
   BETDZ LTB has also verbally confirmed to the Company that the 
   above EIT preferences should be available to the Company as 
   long as the Company's registered address is in BETDZ and it 
   remains as a HTE.
   For the period ended 30 June 2003, an amount equal to the 7.5% 
   EIT exempted amounting to approximately RMB7,492,000 
   (2002: RMB11,393,000) was transferred to the tax reserve.

   The reconciliation of the tax expense of the Group is as 
                                       For the six months 
                                          ended 30 June

                                       =========    =========

   Under PRC income tax law, the Company's subsidiaries and
   joint ventures within PRC are generally subject to EIT at
   a rate of 33% on the taxable income. Foreign entities are
   subject to income tax as required by tax laws of countries
   where those entities operate, respectively. However, as 
   these foreign entities had no material operating activities
   nor taxable profits for the period, no income tax provision
   was made.

4. Earnings per share

   The calculation of the basic earnings per share for the 
   six months ended 30 June 2003 was based on the net 
   profit of approximately RMB92,979,000 (2002: RMB76,521,000) 
   divided by the weighted average number of shares issued 
   during the period of 182,800,000 shares (2002: 182,800,000 

   Diluted earnings per share equal basic earnings per share 
   because there were no potential dilutive ordinary shares 
   outstanding during the period.
