SE Asia Stocks-Philippines, Indonesia mark new closing highs
Philippine and Indonesian shares posted record closing highs on Wednesday as overnight gains on Wall
Street buoyed sentiment across Asia, while Thailand edged down after scaling a 24-year peak.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS rose as much as 0.3 percent.
Philippine stocks .PSI extended gains to a fourth session, led by financial and telecom stocks, as expectations of a tax overhaul continued to boost investor optimism.
The proposed tax reform measures will only have a modest inflationary impact and will not need a monetary policy
response, said Nestor Espenilla the central bank governor, who also brushed off a sharp decline in the peso currency in an upbeat message on the economy.
The tax measures seek to expand the value-added tax base, raise excise taxes on fuel and automobiles, and slap levies on sugar-sweetened beverages among other changes. They were approved by the lower house of Congress in May, but have yet to be endorsed by the Senate.
Blue-chip BDO Unibank Inc BDO.PS rose 2.1 percent to close an all-time high while telecom service provider PLDT Inc TEL.PS closed 2.4 percent higher.

energy and material stocks.

An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks rose 0.2 percent.
Vietnam stock market .VNI climbed nearly 1 percent, its biggest gain in over 2 months, led by financial stocks.
Malaysian stock market .KLSE ended marginally up, helped by telecom and consumer discretionary stocks. Genting Bhd GENT.KL added nearly 1 percent, while CIMB Group Holdings Bhd CIMB.KL closed 0.8 percent up.
