Asia's Best Companies poll results Part 2

We are happy to present part 2 of the results of our 2004 Best Managed Companies poll.

We would like to congratulate all the companies mentioned in these lists. They are the result of a poll FinanceAsia has carried out over the past two months asking fund managers, portfolio managers, equity investors and research analysts who they think are the best companies in Asia. We had 424 respondents, making this the largest response we have ever received. We thank all those who took the time to take part and will be annoucing the winners of the weekends away in Singapore and Bangkok, the five iPods and the trial subscriptions to FinanceAsia magazine next week.
