Singaporean stocks closed down 2.6%, weighed down by losses in heavyweight conglomerates Jardine Cycle & Carriage Ltd and Jardine Strategic Holdings Ltd. Singapore will close schools and most workplaces, except for essential services like supermarkets and banks for a month, as its infections have been rising sharply in recent weeks. Elsewhere, Benchmark Brent crude oil futures rose above $30 a barrel on Friday after soaring as much as 47% in the previous session, on expectations of a huge global supply cut deal to support prices.

* Malaysia mostly flat, c.bank holds interest rate * Indonesia Q3 GDP broadly in line with expectations * Philippines surges in last-minute trade By Sameer Manekar Nov 5 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Tuesday, with Philippines rising the most, as risk appetite was boosted by a report that the United States was planning to drop some tariffs on Chinese goods. Global equities rose after the Financial Times reported that the United States was considering rolling back levies on $112 billion of Chinese imports as a concession to a partial deal, which could be signed this month, according to U.S. officials. "If the U.S. does roll back existing tariffs, the positive spillover will extend beyond financial markets, as such a move would alleviate the downwards pressures on global trade conditions as well," said Han Tan, market analyst at FXTM in a note.

Astra International, Indonesia's largest automobile distributor, on Thursday launched a joint venture with Go-Jek to provide cars to the ride-hailing firm. The move, which comes on the heels of an overall $250 million investment in Go-Jek, is aimed at boosting Astra's already-strong market dominance, despite a dismal full-year outlook for countrywide car sales. "The outlook for the country's overall car sales is between 1.05 million and 1.1 million units for 2019," Astra President and Director Prijono Sugiarto told reporters, a dive from 1.5 million units sold in 2018.
