                     introduces new services in association with
business partners

Hong Kong, April 3, 2001

In  a press conference held in Hong Kong last week, Part-  announced the introduction of new services  and
unveiled alliances with a number of new business partners
in the Far East.  is  the  unique web-based  business  aimed
exclusively at those seeking part-time and temporary work
as  well  as those wishing to earn additional  income  by
taking  a  second job - a feature increasingly common  in
the life of bustling Hong Kong. The business is owned and
operated by Cybermax Network Technology Ltd., a Hong Kong
based  company  in   which  EPA  invested  HK$15  million 
(approximately GBP1,364,000) for 49% of the equity.

Features  offered by are specially designed
to  cater  for the needs and behaviour of both  part-time
jobseekers  and employers, a market that is significantly
different   from   the  full-time  job  market.    (Part-'s  record  for the time between  posting  a  job
vacancy  and  receipt  by  the  employer  of  the   first
application  is  six  minutes.)    In  addition  to  such
features, also utilizes a proprietary sales
management  and customer relationship system  to  enhance
its value-added services to the employers.

Despite  limited advertising and promotion  support,  the  website now gets over 100,000  visitors  a
month  whilst  more than 2,000 employers  are  registered
with  the  company (including, for example, one third  of
all  major retail chains in Hong Kong). With its  initial
phase  of service development now fully completed,  Part- will launch a major promotional campaign devised
by  leading international advertising agency, Oglivy  and
Mather,  in April.  Growth in business is anticipated  to
be significant and sustained.

To  meet  this demand and to accommodate the  anticipated
rapid  growth, is pleased to  announce  its
collaboration   with  a  number  of  business   partners,
including  SGI Hong Kong and YesMobile.   SGI  Hong  Kong
will  be   providing  a  high power  computer  system  to
deliver   the   fastest  and  most  reliable  recruitment
advertising   service   in  the   sector,    while   with
YesMobile's  short  message service, job  applicants  can
receive  job  vacancy  notices  (and  interview  results)
direct  to their mobile phones - important when  Internet
penetration has not yet reached its highest potential and
competition is fierce for both employers and employees in
the part-time job market.
