HONG KONG -- Hutchison Telecommunications International Limited (SEHK: 2332; NYSE: HTX; "Hutchison Telecom") today announced the launch of its Indonesian mobile operation PT Hutchison CP Telecom ("HCPT"). HCPT is a partnership of Hutchison Telecom and the Charoen Pokphand Group. The Company commits to providing GSM mobile telephony services under the 3 brand with 3G network services overlaid in Jakarta initially.

In a market where the majority of the population is underserved in terms of GSM mobility, HCPT aims to satisfy the demand through the most innovative and customer-oriented products and services on the market, an extensive distribution network and simple, creative and best-value tariff plans.

At launch, HCPT's network covers most of the Java Island and the company intends to expand its coverage to the Sumatra within 2007 and commence service in Kalimantan and Sulawesi by the end of 2008.

Dennis Lui, Chief Executive Officer of Hutchison Telecom said: "With one of the largest populations in the region and a low wireless penetration rate, Indonesia is an extremely attractive market that fits well with the Group's model of pursuing growth and creating value in dynamic markets."

"The huge growth potential combined with Hutchison Telecom's international expertise and proven track record in driving growth in new markets make us confident that Indonesia will soon become one of our principal growth markets in the years to come," Mr Lui added.
