SE Asia Stocks-Fall after N. Korea nuclear tests, ECB

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday in line with broader Asian peers after North Korea conducted its fifth and largest nuclear test, while uncertainty over the prospect of further easing from the European Central Bank weighed on sentiment.
The ECB held interest rates on hold as expected on Thursday and said it will study policy options to ensure it can pursue
its unprecedented money-printing programme but did not hint at the anticipated extension of its asset purchases.
"ECB's disappointing comments were the key driver of today's market weakness across the region," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Daewoo Securities Indonesia.
"Most market participants were waiting for the ECB to announce some aggressive stimulus measures or at least an extension to their current asset purchases programme which they failed to."
North Korea conducted a nuclear test that was more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, with the nation saying it
had mastered the ability to mount a warhead on a ballistic missile.  
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  dropped 1.7 percent to their lowest in nearly six weeks, with financials and telecoms weighing down the index, and posted a weekly fall of 1.3 percent.
Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Persero) Tbk PT  TLKM.JK  fell 2.6 percent and Bank Mandiri (Persero) Tbk PT  BMRI.JK  lost 3.1 percent.
The Indonesian market declined because foreign investors were "taking profits", Shim added.     
Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 1.1 percent lower, with financials and consumer staples among the biggest losers. They
declined 2.9 percent this week.
Index heavyweight PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  led the losers with a drop of 3.7 percent, while Jollibee Foods Corp  JFC.PS  lost 4.5 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  closed down 0.7 percent after losing as much as 1 percent earlier in the day, but posted a gain of 2.5 percent for the week.
Financials and telecoms pulled down the index on Friday, with Singapore Telecommunications Ltd  STEL.SI  and DBS Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  among the biggest losers.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  closed marginally higher but were down 0.4 percent for the week.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was down 1 percent at 0940 GMT.

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.
