Singapore-based Mapletree Logistics Trust on Thursday announced plans to acquire a few logistics properties in Japan, Australia and South Korea for a combined value of S$913.6 million ($686.97 million).

* South Korean won jumps most among Asian FX * Chinese stocks, yuan rally on further COVID-19 curb easing * Dollar falls across board (Adds Japan figures in the table) By Archishma Iyer Dec 27 (Reuters) - Most emerging Asian currencies were trading in green on Tuesday against a relatively weaker U.S. dollar, coming off from an extended Christmas holiday, as risk sentiment improved after China eased COVID-19 quarantine restrictions. The South Korean won gained the most, rising about 0.7% to hit its highest since June 10. China, Asia's largest economy, said it will stop requiring inbound travellers to go into quarantine from Jan. 8 in addition to downgrading the seriousness of COVID-19 as it has become less virulent, leading to hopes of economic growth picking up faster.
* Singapore projects GDP growth to ease in 2023 * Malaysian stocks fall for thirst consecutive session * Philippine stocks hit highest since Sept. 19 By Himanshi Akhand Nov 23 (Reuters) - Singapore's dollar and equities fell on Wednesday, after the country projected a slowdown in economic growth next year even as its inflation came below forecast, while investors awaited minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve's last policy meeting. The Singaporean dollar lost 0.4% after the city-state forecast growth would slow to between 0.5% and 2.5% in 2023 from about 3.5% this year. Stocks were down 0.1%, after falling as much as 0.3% earlier, after data showed that Singapore's key consumer price gauge rose 5.1% in October, slightly less than forecast and below the previous month.
* Malaysian ringgit hits lowest since Jan 1998 * Singapore dollar hits lowest since June 2020 * Philippine peso on track for a sixth straight session of losses By Tejaswi Marthi Sept 7 (Reuters) - Currencies in emerging Asian markets were in a sea of red on Wednesday, with the Malaysian ringgit hitting a more than two-decade low after the greenback resumed its ascent and U.S. Treasury yields rose on views that the Federal Reserve will continue its aggressive policy tightening. A report overnight showed the U.S. services industry unexpectedly picked up last month, reinforcing the view that the economy is not in recession and giving the Fed leeway for another super-sized 75 basis-point rate rise on Sept. 21. The Malaysian ringgit fell 0.1% to hit its lowest level since the 1998 Asia financial crisis that saw a massive sell-off in Southeast Asian equities and currencies.
