The Philippine index closed 1.2 percent higher, after having risen as much as 2.2 percent during the day, led by industrials and financials. Ayala Corp AC.PS gained 3.8 percent, while Bank of the Philippine Island BPI.PS and Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co MBT.PS rose over one percent each.

Investors also shrugged off the worse-than-expected fall in October exports in Singapore, as non-oil domestic exports slid 12 percent from a year earlier.
Thai stocks .SETI ended marginally lower in their second straight session of losses with consumer stocks leading the
Charoen Pokphand Foods Pcl CPF.BK lost as much as 5.2 percent while CP All Pcl CPALL.BK shed 1.6 percent.
