SE Asia Stocks-Malaysia hits 3-1/2 month high on crude gains; Indonesia down  

Indonesian shares fell to two-week lows on Monday after a sharp drop in July exports and imports dampened investor sentiment, while Malaysian stocks hit three-and-a-half month highs as energy stocks gained on firm oil prices.
Indonesia's exports and imports plunged on an annual basis in July, the statistics bureau said, confounding expectations for the first growth in 22 months.
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  closed 1.1 percent lower, after declining as much as 1.5 percent earlier in the session to its lowest since Aug. 1.
Meanwhile, sentiment in Asian markets got a boost after a rally in Chinese stocks helped offset news of Japan's economic growth slowing to a halt last quarter.       
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  hit a three-and-a-half month high, helped by energy stocks after oil prices rose to fresh highs for the month of August. Sapurakencana Petroleum Bhd  SKPE.KL  gained 4.7 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed marginally lower, after hitting a 15-month peak on forecast-beating second-quarter GDP growth data.
Thailand's economy beat expectations in the second quarter to grow at its fastest annual rate in 13 quarters, due to high state and tourist spending. 
In the long term, the news of GDP growth will create positive sentiment, said Sumek Chantrasuriyarat, an analyst with Thailand-based KGI, adding that the impact of bomb blast might not be serious and that the overall market sentiment seemed to be neutral.
Four people were killed and dozens were wounded in a series of bomb and arson attacks in some of Thailand's best-known southern resorts and islands, last week. 
Philippine shares  .PSI  recovered from earlier losses to close marginally higher, while Vietnam  .VNI  ended up 0.57 percent, driven by oil and gas stocks including Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM .
Singapore shares  .STI  closed almost steady with financial stocks among the top losers.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
