Re:      Aberdeen Global Income Fund, Inc. (File No. 333-100429)
         Application to Withdraw Registration Statement on Form N-2

Dear Sirs:

Aberdeen Global Income Fund, Inc. ("Registrant"), a closed-end management
investment company, hereby applies, pursuant to Rule 477 under the Securities
Act of 1933, to withdraw the Registration Statement on Form N-2 filed by
Registrant on October 8, 2002 to register additional shares to be offered in a
rights offering. Registrant's Board of Directors has determined that market
developments since that filing have not been favorable for a rights offering and
that the offering should therefore not proceed. No securities have been sold in
connection with the proposed rights offering.

Please call the undersigned at 202-261-3308 if you have questions about this

Yours truly,

Hugh Young, President and Principal Executive Officer
