JARDINE FLEMING CHINA REGION FUND CONFIRMS FINAL TERMS OF RIGHTS OFFER

 BALTIMORE, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Jardine Fleming China Region Fund, Inc. (NYSE: JFC) confirmed today the terms of its rights offer.
 Pursuant to the rights offer, the Fund will distribute to shareholders of record on Dec. 8, 1993, one transferable right for each share of common stock owned on such date. Three rights entitle a shareholder to purchase one additional share of the Fund's common stock at a purchase price of $19.50 per share. Fractional shares will not be issued. Rights may be exercised at any time during the subscription period which ends on Dec. 29, 1993, at 5:00 p.m., New York time, unless the Fund decides to extend the subscription period to a date not later than Jan. 5, 1994.
 Record date shareholders who exercise in full all of the rights originally issued to them can take advantage of the over-subscription privilege which allows them to subscribe for shares which were not otherwise subscribed for by others. Over-subscribers may or may not receive some or all of the shares requested pursuant to the over- subscription privilege, subject to certain limitations and a pro-rata allotment.
 Because the subscription price is less than the Fund's current net asset value per share, shareholders will experience a dilution of the aggregate net asset value of any shares owned.
 Subscription certificates evidencing the rights and a copy of the Prospectus describing the rights offer will be mailed on Dec. 10, 1993, to shareholders of record on Dec. 8, 1993, whose record addresses are in the United States. Shareholders whose record addresses are outside the United States will be sent a copy of the Prospectus but will not be sent subscription certificates. The rights offer will be made only by means of the Prospectus.
 Jardine Fleming China Region Fund, Inc. is a closed-end, non- diversified management investment company that seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of companies with substantial assets in, or revenues derived from, the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, the Republic of China and Macau.
