UK companies doing business in the Middle East.



UPI will carry BBC Monitoring’s international broadcast coverage on its

IBM compatible software package GlobalView.



Michael Rawlinson, UPI’s representative for Europe, the Middle East and

Africa, said that despite growing Internet usage, GlobalView was

attractive to corporate users as there were no on-going dial up charges,

just a monthly fee of USdollars 300, and because it was more secure than

the Internet.



UPI, which is owned by a group of Saudi investors, is also looking at

adding other services to its menu of services.
