Business and City Summary
Monday 11 October 1993
The trade minister, Richard Needham, will try to save British Aerospace's proposed joint venture with Taiwan Aerospace Corporation when he visits Taipei next week. Department of Trade and Industry officials confirmed that he was likely to discuss the deal on the long- planned trade promotion visit.
BAe says that without the deal, which appears to be in danger of collapse, it will have to close its regional aircraft business, with the loss of 3,000 jobs.
Directors' total remuneration packages can amount to more than 200 per cent of their base salaries, according to a survey by the actuaries Bacon & Woodrow. The study, of 1,434 directors in 222 larger companies, showed the average basic salary of chief executives in July was pounds 158,000 and for directors as a whole was pounds 92,000. The typical director was aged 48 and male. Only 50 female executives were identified and only two groups had female chief executives.
The troubled property developer Greycoat has pounds 500m of assets, according to John Katz, who has campaigned for a number of shareholders over the lack of information provided by the company.
