SE Asia Stocks-Singapore closes 1.6 pct higher; Philippines down
Most Southeast Asian stocks rose on Tuesday, in line with Asian peers, with the Singapore index .STI rising about 2 percent earlier in the day to hit a more than 1-month high, while Malaysia .KLSE closed more than half a percent higher.
Asian shares advanced on Tuesday, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS extending gains to 0.8 percent.
The Singapore index .STI hit its highest since July 28 before closing up 1.6 percent, with gains in energy stocks supporting the rally.
Sembcorp Marine SCMN.SI and Keppel Corp KPLM.SI rose after Brent crude oil prices gained earlier in the day, before falling on receding hopes of imminent action to tackle a supply glut.
Malaysian shares .KLSE closed 0.7 percent higher, led by consumer cyclicals.
A Reuters poll showed Malaysia's imports in July contracted 1.5 percent from a year earlier, after an 8.3 percent rise the
previous month. Malaysia is set to announce its imports and exports data on Wednesday.
Thailand .SETI was up 0.3 percent, led by industrials.
Pipe manufacturer and distributor Wiik & Hoeglund PCL WIIK.BK settled 12.8 percent higher.
Philippine stocks .PSI however fell, as equities faced pressure following criticism of U.S. President Barack Obama by
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte that prompted Washington to call off a bilateral meeting.
"The cancellation of the meeting between leaders of the Philippines and the U.S. has exacerbated selling pressure in the market," said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Asiasec Equities Inc in Manila.
Financial stocks were among the biggest losers after the country's central bank governor Amando Tetangco said there was no strong need to change monetary policy.
Conglomerate JG Summit Holdings JGS.PS was the biggest percentage loser, shedding 2.9 percent.
Indonesia .JKSE rose slightly on gains in healthcare stocks, while Vietnam .VNI closed marginally lower.

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.
