SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia gains; market subdued ahead of Yellen speech

Indonesian shares gained nearly 1 percent on Thursday while other markets in the region were largely lacklustre as investors awaited cues on U.S. interest rates from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's speech on Friday.
Markets expect Yellen to outline a clearer time frame for the next U.S. rate hike after strong housing data this week and upbeat comments by other Fed officials, but many analysts expect her to strike a more neutral stance.  
Indonesian stocks posted their first gain in three sessions led by utilities, with Perusahaan Gas Negara (Persero) Tbk PT  PGAS.JK  gaining 4.1 percent.
Harry Su, an analyst with Jakarta-based Bahana Securities, attributed the gains to a technical rebound, adding that a rise
in emerging market exchange-traded funds(ETFs) helped Indonesian ETFs, further boosting the market curve.
Market participants are still hoping that the tax amnesty programme will be a success, propelling the market to be the best performer in the region, Su added.*:nL4N1AM0HU
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  had gained 17.7 percent this year as of Wednesday's close.  
Vietnamese shares  .VNI  eased after two sessions of gains to end marginally lower, with energy shares tumbling on a decline in global oil prices  O/R . Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  ended 2.4 percent lower.
The market was cautious ahead of Yellen's speech, with the weakness on Wall Street and lower commodity prices weighing on sentiment, said Fiachra MacCana, head of research at Ho Chi Minh Securities.
"There is a hint of nervousness in the air with investors expecting the speech to lay out a possible rationale for a rate hike before the year-end," MacCana said.

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.
