Vietnam's benchmark VN Index eased 0.15 percent at the close on Wednesday, tracking a regional market fall as foreign investors extended a selling run that pushed trade volume to a two-month high.

Pha Lai Thermal Power Co slumped 4 percent as a result of net selling by one exchange traded fund. Top insurer BaoViet Holdings fell 2.8 percent and real estate firm Hoang Anh Gia Lai lost 2 percent.
Appetite was weak in most Asian markets amid concern about possible U.S. military strikes on Syrian state targets.
Trading volume was the highest level since June 26 at 69.3 million shares. Foreign investors offloaded a net 264 billion dong ($12.5 million) in the previous three days and analysts said sentiment was unlikely to improve in the absence of any positive news about the country's lacklustre economy.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  
                 VN Index    471.45

Southeast Asian stocks ended down on Wednesday, led by Indonesia and the Philippines, as concerns about a potential U.S. military strike on Syria fuelled selling in the emerging region already plagued by a weaker economic outlook.
Most Southeast Asian benchmark indexes ended around a week low due to selling in heavyweights such as Malayan Banking, Telkomunikasi Indonesia, Singapore Telecommunications and Advanced Info Service.
The Philippine main index dropped 1.9 percent to 5,968.33, falling below a key 6,000 level for the first time in three sessions.
Jakarta's Composite Index slipped 2.2 percent to 4,073.46, led by falls in Telkomunikasi Indonesia and Astra International. Coal miner Indika Energy erased most of its earlier gains due to late profit-taking.
In its ASEAN economics report dated Sept. 3, Morgan Stanley said it was downgrading its 2013/2014 GDP growth numbers for ASEAN 4 -- Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore -- to 4.5-4.6 percent from 4.8-5.3 percent, reflecting a weaker-than-expected first half 2013 and a more clouded outlook.

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.
