Interim Results

JP Morgan Flem Chinese Inv Tst PLC
03 June 2005


                          STOCK EXCHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT


The Board today release the unaudited interim results of the Company for the six
months to 31st March 2005.

The following are comments from the Chairman:


I am pleased to report that the Company's total return to shareholders for the
six months to 31st March 2005 was +12.4%. This return comprises the 10.4% rise
in the Company's share price from 54.8p to 60.5p, and a net dividend of 1.00p
per share that was paid to shareholders on 23rd December 2004.

Over the same period, the Company's total return on net assets, which comprises
the percentage change in net asset value with this net dividend reinvested, was
+5.7%. This compares favourably with a total return for the Company's benchmark,
the MSCI Golden Dragon Index (in sterling terms), of +2.9%.

New Directors

I am delighted to confirm the appointment of two new members of the Board, Mr
Irving Koo and Madam Yujiang Zhao, both appointed on 1st February 2005. Mr
Irving Koo is founder and managing director of Trion Pacific Limited, a Hong
Kong-based consultancy specialising in marketing and communication solutions. He
was formerly a director of Jardine Pacific Limited with specific responsibility
for the group's trading and distribution activities, and more recently Group
Marketing & Corporate Relations director of CLP Holdings.

Madam Yujiang Zhao is currently a director and senior adviser of Mahon China, a
foreign private equity management firm in China. Prior to this she was an
economist at the PRC's State Commission for Restructuring the Economic Systems,
helping to shape China's financial reform policies.

Both Directors bring considerable knowledge of China and its surrounding
economies to the Board. Shareholders will have an opportunity to meet them later
in the year at the Annual General Meeting.

Share Issues and Share Buybacks

At the Annual General Meeting in December 2004, shareholders gave the Board the
authority to issue up to an additional 6,608,700 new ordinary shares. At the
time of writing, one million shares have been issued at an average premium to
net asset value of 3.7%.

In addition, the authority to repurchase up to 14.99% of the Company's issued
share capital was renewed at the Annual General Meeting. As previously stated,
repurchases will only be made in the market at prices below the prevailing net
asset value per share. Since the end of the period, the Company's shares have in
the main moved to trade at a small discount to their net asset value. At the
time of writing, no shares have been repurchased under this authority, but the
Board is prepared to repurchase shares for cancellation if the discount
increases significantly and any repurchases would result in an increase to the
net asset value per share.


As highlighted in the Investment Manager's Report, the strength of the global
economy will dominate market direction in the coming months. The focal points
for the Greater China region will be the possibility of the Chinese central bank
further raising interest rates and the impact of a possible slowdown of the U.S.
economy. Your Board, however, remains positive about the longer-term outlook for
the Chinese economy and the region's prospects in general.
