Report on Form 8-K filed January 4, 2000.


Item 4. CHANGES IN REGISTRANT'S CERTIFYING ACCOUNTANT.


         Effective January 18, 2000, the Registrant engaged Paritz & Company
(the "Auditors"), an independent accounting firm, as the principal accountant to
audit the Registrant's financial statements. The Registrant believes such
decision will strengthen the Registrant's financial reporting and accounting
functions. Moreover, the Registrant believes that retaining Auditors who are
based in the United States will facilitate more efficiency in the Registrant's
SEC reporting process. The decision to change accountants was approved by the
Board of Directors of the Registrant.


Item 7. EXHIBIT.


         Letter from KPMG Accountants, N.V. addressed to the Securities and
Exchange Commission notifying the SEC of its termination as registrant's
principal accountant, dated January 18, 2000.

                       [LETTERHEAD OF KPMG ACCOUNTANTS]

Securities and Exchange Commission
450 Fifth Street N.W.
WASHINGTON, DC 20549

Amstelveen, 18 January 2000


Ladies and gentlemen,

We were previously principal accountants for Trimol Group Inc. ("Trimol" or
the "Company") and, under the date of 14 April 1999, we reported on the
consolidated financial statements of Trimol Group Inc. and subsidiaries as of
and for the years ended 31 December 1998 and 1997. On 27 December 1999, our
appointment as principal accountants was terminated. We have read Trimol's
statements included under Item 4 of its Form 8-K dated 4 January 2000 ("Item
4"), and we agree with such statements except as follows:

We are not in a position to agree or disagree with the Company's statement in
the second sentence of the first paragraph of Item 4.

Although not noted in Item 4, during 1999 we had communications with the
Company concerning the need for the Company to strengthen its financial
reporting and accounting function in addition to actions the Company could
take to attempt to increase the efficiency of its SEC reporting process.

Very truly yours,

KPMG Accountants NV
