Aberdeen Asia-Pacific Income Investment Company Limited announces monthly distribution



    TORONTO, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Aberdeen Asia-Pacific Income Investment Company
Limited (TSX: FAP) (the "Company"), a closed-end investment company trading on
The Toronto Stock Exchange, announced today that it will pay a monthly
distribution of CAD 5.0 cents per ordinary share on October 16, 2009 to all
ordinary shareholders of record as of September 30, 2009 (ex-distribution date
September 28, 2009).
    For the 12 months to August 31, 2009, the Company has paid total
distributions amounting to CAD 60.0 cents per ordinary share.
    The policy of the Company's Board of Directors is to maintain a stable
monthly distribution out of net investment income, supplemented by available

to regular review at the Board's quarterly meetings. The next review is
scheduled to take place in December 2009.
    Shareholders with registered addresses in Canada will receive
distributions in Canadian dollars unless they have elected otherwise. Although
a portion of the amount distributed is recorded as a return of capital for
financial statement purposes, the full amount of the distribution will be
foreign income for Canadian income tax purposes.

advised by Aberdeen Asset Management Limited.
