SE Asia Stocks-Mark time ahead of US jobs data   

Southeast Asian stock markets marked time on Friday ahead of a key U.S. jobs report that could provide
clues on when the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates.
Economists polled by Reuters expect the U.S. economy to have added about 180,000 jobs in August, wages to nudge up and for
overall unemployment rate to dip to 4.8 percent.  
Analysts said that a payrolls reading of around over 200,000 could even prompt the Federal Reserve to consider raising rates
at its next meeting in three weeks time, whereas under 100,000 would push back expectations of a rate rise into 2017.
There is a 36 percent chance that the rate hike would happen in September, but the fact is that the Fed usually doesn't like
to raise rates before the November presidential election, so it may happen in December, said Grace Aller, head of research at AP
Securities in Manila.
"The movement of the U.S. markets tonight will dictate the movement in the (Asian) markets next week."
Thai shares  .SETI  closed 1.2 percent lower after declining as much as 1.5 percent to their lowest in nearly a month,
dragged down by healthcare and energy stocks. For the week, they eased 1.8 percent.
Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Pcl  BDMS.BK , the country's largest hospital operator, lost about 3.8 percent after it cut
its full-year revenue growth target to 8-10 percent from 11-12 percent due to lower-than-expected growth in the first half.
Singapore shares  .STI  fell to their lowest in two months, battered by telecom stocks such as Singapore Telecommunications
Ltd  STEL.SI , StarHub Ltd  STAR.SI  and M1 Ltd  MONE.SI   
Telecom stocks lost ground after Australia's TPG Telecom  TPM.AX  and two local firms submitted expressions of interest
to the Singapore telecommunications regulator in an auction of radio airwaves later this year that is aimed at establishing a
fourth mobile operator.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  rose 0.4 percent, snapping seven session of losses, and posted their fourth straight weekly loss.
Vietnam  .VNI  was closed for a holiday.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More


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.
