Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended nearly unchanged on Friday, closing at 500.75 points, as investors booked profits after shares have had
several gains, analysts said.

"Investors snapped profits from rising stocks and bought in the shares that have not fully done their upward course," said
analyst Le Dac An at Tan Viet Securities.

Share movements were mixed and liquidity remained moderate, indicating that funds still stayed within the market, An said.
Shares of Binh Minh Plastics Co lost the most, falling 2.9 percent, while real estate firms Tan Tao Investment and Industry Corp  and HAGL Co had slight gains.

Malaysian shares closed a tad lower on Friday, trimming early modest losses after the government unveiled its budget for 2014, while Thai shares retreated from two days of gains as Bank of Thailand cut its GDP growth forecast, triggering late selling.
Kuala Lumpur's composite index  closed down 0.07 percent at 1,817.57, from a record closing high of 1,818.93 on Thursday. It edged up 1 percent on the week, Southeast Asia's best performer.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak unveiled his government's budget for 2014 on Friday, seeking to address a large fiscal deficit, shrinking current account surplus and growing debt pile that are sources of concern for investors and ratings agencies.  

The Thai SET index finished down 0.8 percent after climbing 1.2 percent in the past two sessions and ending the week down 2 percent, the region's worst.

Thailand's central bank cut its forecast for growth in gross domestic product to 3.7 percent from 4.2 percent in July and slashed its forecast for 2013 export growth to just 1 percent from July's 4 percent.

Sharemarkets in the region ended mixed on the week, with the Philippines closing down 1 percent after three weeks of gains.

Singapore and Indonesia extended gains for a third week, adding 0.4 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively.

Vietnam  rose for a second week, up 0.2 percent.
