buyers of Thai shares worth 1.9 billion baht ($59.34 million),

percent to a record close of 245 baht, with a more stable
political situation supportive to the tourism sector, traders
    Stocks in Indonesia and the Philippines rose
for a third day and shares in Singapore extended their
gains for a second day. Vietnam gained for a third
straight session. 
    Large caps such as Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co
, Universal Robina Corp and Telkom Indonesia
 led gainers in the region amid foreign inflows and a
recovery in most regional currencies.

621 million peso ($14.25 million), Indonesian shares worth 475
billion rupiah ($40.39 million), Malaysian shares worth 57
