   Meanwhile, a company that employs President Bush' s brother Prescott as a
consultant, stands to benefit if the President clears the way for the
shipment of two satellites to China by the Hughes Aircraft Co. U.S. officials
and foreign diplomats have said President Bush was expected to approve
exporting the satellites. The action would represent one of the measures the
Administration is taking to improve strained relations with China.

    Asset Management International Financing & Settlement, Ltd, a New York
firm for which Prescott Bush is a consultant has a contract to provide
communications connecting more than 2,000 professional and university offces
in China.

    Company executives said that the Hughes satellites would be
"advantageous" for its project, which is a 50-50 joint venture with the
Chinese government. In addition, Asset Management’s executive vice president
said in an interview that the company could obtain more communications
business in China if the satellites are launched    Prescott Bush, an
international businessman with extensive business contacts in Asia, has
denied using his younger brother's position to help him, and there is no
substantial indication that the President's foreign policy has been affected
by his brother's business dealings.

    White House Press Secretary Marlin Fitzwater said both the President and
his brother were not aware of any direct  relationship between Asset
Management's business activities and Hughes Aircraft, which is supplying the

    "I talked to the President, and he said he is unaware of any relationship
or any activity involving Hughes Aircraft," Fitzwater said. "Then I called
Prescott, and he also was unaware of any association involving Hughes

    A U S. diplomat, describing Prescott Bush's dealings in China, said in an
interview, "He was smart enough not to mention his brother's name, and the
Chinese were smart enough to make the connection."

   President Bush, who headed the U.S. mission in China in the mid- 1970s,
sent National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft and Deputy Secretary of State
Lawrence S. Eagleburger to Beijing, to prevent China from drifting into
isolation as a result of international outrage over the June 3-4 massacre of
pro-democracy demonstrators.

   The overture brought criticism on Capitol Hill, where Democrats accused
the President of moving too swiftly without concessions from the Chinese.
Last June, in response to congressional pressure, Bush imposed sanctions
against China, including a ban on the sale or export of equipment with
possible military uses. Last fall, Congress enacted a provision that
specifically banned the export of satellites to China unless the President
granted a waiver “in the national interest.”

    Scowcroft's trip to Beijing was the latest and most dramatic step by the
Adrninistration to ease the impact of the restrictions. If Bush approves
exporting the Hughes satellites to China, it could heighten the controversy
in Congress.    Los Angeles-based Hughes Aircraft has been seeking final
approval from the White House to sell two of its communications
satellites,one to an Australian state-owned company called Ausat and the
other to a Hong Kong consortium called Asiasat. Both satellites would be
launched on Chinese rockets in China's Sichuan province. The satellites are
designed to provide vital communication links across Asia and Australia and
would be a boon to the joint venture between the Chinese government and Asset
Management, an international financial-services company.

    Company records list Prescott Bush as a member of its senior advisory
board, which includes retired Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, former chief of the
Navy. An executive vice president of Prescott Bush & Co. also is a director
of Asset Management, according to the records.

   In addition to Bush's  role as an adviser, Asset Management Executive Vice
President Stanley B. Scheinman said the President's brother is a paid
consultant who helps the firm in Asia, including arranging a recent $5
million investment in the company by a Japanese firm. "He was instrumental in
assisting us and introducing us to the Japanese investors, " said Scheinman.

    Last September, Prescott Bush swung through Asia and Beijing meeting with
Chinese officials and potential investment partners. At that time, he told
the WallStreetJournal that he was representing Asset Management on several
projects, including the satellite-linked network inside China. He did not
mention then that Asset Management stood to gain from the pending export of
satellites to China. He did say, however, that he had not benefited fram his
brother's position. - ''There' s no conflict of interest," he said. “This is
something  that has been going on for years.” But he conceded, “It doesn't
hurt that my brother is the President of the United States."

    Asset Management's joint venture with the Chinese government calls for a
computer-based communications network linking  2,246 offices of scientists,
physicians, engineers and other professionals within China to the outside
world, according to Richard Wall who negotiated the deal. He said existing
technology could link many offices within China, but he said a satellite is
required for the vital connection to research centers and universities around
the world.    Wall said that China has a domestic satellite in space that
could handle the outside link, but he acknowledged that the Hughes satellites
would offer a better communications link. "The Hughes satellites offer
economies and certain efficiencies," Wall said.

    Wall and Scheinman acknowledged Asset Management has an indirect
involvement with Hughes, which they declined to discuss, that could lead to
additional business in China if the satellites are launched. "We are not
directly involved, but some people we are working with are discussing needs
in communication in China,” said Scheinman.

    This is not Prescott Bush's only business venture in China that could be
affected by an easing of sanctions.

    Through his private company, the President's brother is involved in at
least two separate ventures in Shanghai. Prescott Bush visited Shanghai and
Beijing two or three times a year in the mid-to-late 1980s, the Los Angeles
Times reported.
