SE Asia Stocks-Fall ahead of U.S. jobs data; Indonesia down 1 pct

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Thursday as investors adopted a wait-and-see approach ahead of the U.S. jobs report that could provide clues about the timing of a rate hike by the Federal Reserve.
U.S. nonfarm payrolls data due on Friday remained the key market focus after Fed Vice Chair Stanley Fischer said the data
would be a factor as to when the central bank raises interest rates.  
"People are waiting for the data tomorrow.. Jobs data has been improving over the past few months... Don't see any reason
why it will reverse," said Joseph Roxas, president at Philippines-based Eagle Equities Inc.
Employers are expected to have added 180,000 jobs in August, according to the median estimate of 89 economists polled by
Reuters.  ECONUS  
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  ended 1 percent lower after falling as much as 1.2 percent to their lowest in more than two
weeks, led by utilities and consumer cyclicals.
State-run gas distribution company PT Perusahaan Gas Negara  PGAS.JK  was the third biggest decliner after reporting a 33
percent drop in its January-June profit.
Foreigners are net selling Indonesian equities and that is why markets are down, said Taye Shim, head of research at Daewoo
Securities Indonesia, adding that this was likely to continue.
Philippine shares  .PSI  recovered from a two-month low hit earlier in the session to close marginally lower, their seventh
straight session of losses, with financials leading the losses.

SM Prime Holdings Inc  SMPH.PS  posted its biggest intraday percentage loss in more than three months.  
Vietnam shares  .VNI  recorded their biggest intraday percentage loss in close to four weeks, while Singapore shares
 .STI  reversed earlier gains to close marginally lower.  
Asian markets excluding Japan fell, with MSCI's broadest index  .MIAPJ0000PUS  down 0.3 percent.

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.
