Indonesia and Bank Central Asia. It finished
the week up 0.7 percent amid mixed regional performances.
    Vietnam was an outperformer on the week, notching up
a gain of 2.2 percent while Thailand jumped 1.7 percent.
Malaysia fell 0.6 percent on the week and the
Philippines posted a loss of 0.3 percent.

million) and 1.1 billion baht ($30.86 million), stock exchange
data showed.
    The Philippines saw a net outflow for the week of 1.2
