• Indonesia books US$1.02 billion trade deficit in August
Statistics Indonesia (BPS) announced on Monday that Indonesia recorded a trade deficit of US$1.02 billion in August, mostly as a result of oil and gas imports.
The August trade deficit is half of the $2.03 billion deficit in July, Indonesia's highest in five years.

• August car imports up
Vietnamese businesses imported nearly 10,000 completely built cars in August, up 50 per cent compared with the previous month, according to the General Department of Vietnam Customs.
This is a good sign for many domestic customers as auto importers have met requirements of Government Decree 116 on the conditions for production, assembly, import and business of automobile warranty and maintenance services, which came into effect on January 1 this year.

• Accelerating economic activity pushes up energy imports
The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry has blamed accelerating economic activity for an increase in energy imports, the largest contributor to the country’s trade deficit in August.
Statistics Indonesia announced on Monday that the country’s trade deficit had risen to US$1.02 billion in August, mostly as a result of oil and gas imports, which had increased by 14.5 percent from the previous month to $3.05 billion.

Hoi An Town in Quang Nam Province, Hue City in Thừa Thien-Hue Province and Da Lat City in Lam Dong Province have been presented with ASEAN Clean Tourist Awards, and the titles will be valid for 2018-20.
