 The Fleming Overseas Investment Trust plc ('the Company
                       or FOSIT')
   Renewal of shareholder authority to repurchase the
                    Company's Shares

At  the  AGM  last October, shareholders  authorised  the
Company  to  repurchase  up to 14.99%  of  the  Company's
issued share capital.  Since that time, 13,633,000 shares
have  been  repurchased representing 12.2%,  and  only  a
small number of shares remain capable of repurchase.

The  Board of FOSIT continue to believe that the  ability
to  repurchase  shares is of benefit to all shareholders.
Accordingly, the Board have decided to recommend  to  all
shareholders  that  the authority  to  repurchase  shares
should  be  renewed.   A  resolution  to  authorise   the
repurchase  of  a further 14.99% of the Company's  shares
will  be  put to shareholders at an Extraordinary General
Meeting to be held on 24th May 2000.
