SE Asia Stocks-Rise after Fed minutes; Indonesia posts 16-mth closing high

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Thursday, in line with Asian peers, as risk-taking appetite returned after minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve's
July policy meeting indicated a rate hike is still some way off.
Fed policymakers agree that more economic data is needed before raising rates, although some see a need to tighten policy
soon, the minutes showed.  
"Although uncertainty prevails among investors with regard to the timing of the next rate hike, the likelihood of it being
in September has significantly reduced," said Samantha Wee, a trader with CLSA Singapore Pte Ltd.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  rose as much as 0.76 percent in its biggest rise
since Aug. 8.  
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  rose 1.7 percent and posted their highest close since April 2015, with consumer stocks accounting
for more than half of the rise.
PT Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna Tbk  HMSP.JK  and PT Astra International Tbk  ASII.JK  were among the top percentage gainers.
Thai shares  .SETI  jumped 1 percent and posted their first gain in four sessions, driven by industrials.
Philippine shares  .PSI  eked out small gains after data showed second-quarter annual economic growth picked up to 7.0
percent from 6.8 percent in January-March.  
The Philippine central bank said it does not expect increased spending by the government to push inflation higher
significantly, and saw no need for monetary policy adjustments.  
LT Group Inc  LTG.PS  and Universal Robina Corp  URC.PS  were the top performers.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  closed marginally higher, while Singapore  .STI  posted its sixth straight session of losses, dragged down by consumer goods stocks.

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.
