Dear Sir

RE: Resignation from Board

This letter serves as a notice of my resignation as a Board Member from the Company Board of Far East Corporation. I shall not be sitting in at the next Board meeting on February 20, 2011.

It has taken me a long time to reach this decision to resign as a Board Member, having served for 8 years. But the time has come for me to make way for the younger generation to take over my place in the Company Board this year. Hence, my resignation will take immediate effect.

Please feel free to appoint another member to take my seat in the Company Board. I am confident of your choice of successor for the benefit of the company.

Allow me to record my appreciation for your support during my tenure at the Board.

Yours Sincerely

Gerry Williams
