SE Asia Stocks-Higher as soft Chinese inflation data spurs hopes of stimulus

Most Southeast Asian stocks closed higher on Tuesday, as China's consumer inflation eased in July, with sentiment across the region up on hopes of further policy easing if needed in the world's second largest economy.
China's consumer price index rose 1.8 percent in July from a year earlier, in line with analysts' expectations, compared with
a 1.9 percent increase in June and matching this year's low hit in January.
Low inflation means Beijing has room to loosen monetary policy if needed, but policymakers appear to have disparate views over how much stimulus is needed to stoke economic growth, if any, and what form it should take.  
"The lower Chinese inflation data gives investors something to look forward to in terms of further policy easing," said Victor Felix of AB Capital Securities Inc in Manila.
Singapore shares  .STI  finished up 1.5 percent after rising as much as 2 percent earlier in the day, the biggest intraday percentage gain since June 30.  
Bluechips such as Jardine Cycle and Carriage Ltd  JCYC.SI  and Singapore Telecommunications  STEL.SI  led the gainers.
The Philippine index  .PSI  ended 0.8 percent higher, as investors welcomed a bunch of positive corporate earnings.  
Ayala Land  ALI.PS , one of the top gainers on the index, rose more than 2 percent after reporting strong half-yearly
"I think here in Philippines, the movement is more focussed on the corporate earnings this week," said Grace Aller of AP
Securities in Manila.  
Thai shares closed up 0.4 percent, extending a rally into a fifth straight session and hitting a 15-month closing high.
Energy and telecom stocks led the gainers. Thai Oil PCL  TOP.BK  rose 4 percent, after booking a higher quarterly profit
on Monday.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  closed more than 1 pct higher, helped by a rally in the energy sector. Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock
Corp  GAS.HM  was up 1.7 pct.
Indonesia  .JKSE  closed marginally lower, while Malaysia  .KLSE  was little changed.  
Asian shares rose, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  up 0.1 percent.

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.
