**Abstract:**
We consider the steady Navier-Stokes equations in a 2-dimensional unbounded multiply connected domain $\Omega $ under the general outflow condition. Let $T$ be a 2-dimensional straight channel $\Bbb R \times (-1,1)$. We suppose that $\Omega \cap \{x_1 < 0 \}$ is bounded and that $\Omega \cap \{x_1 > -1 \} = T \cap \{x_1 > -1 \}$. Let $V$ be a Poiseuille flow in $T$ and $\mu $ the flux of $V$. We look for a solution which tends to $V$ as $x_1 \rightarrow \infty $. Assuming that the domain and the boundary data are symmetric with respect to the $x_1$-axis, and that the axis intersects every component of the boundary, we have shown the existence of solutions if the flux is small (Morimoto-Fujita [8]). Some improvement will be reported in this note. We also show certain regularity and asymptotic properties of the solutions.
