high, but most other markets in Southeast Asia were subdued in line with regional indexes.

half also hurt sentiment.

The country's central bank left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.50 percent. Bank of Thailand said in a statement the Thai economy was expected to grow at a faster pace than its previous assessment, driven by growth in exports and improvement in domestic demand.
Indonesian stocks .JKSE slumped 0.2 percent, a day after marking a record closing high, owing to losses in energy and telecommunication stocks.
