SE Asia Stocks-Tepid ahead of U.S.-North Korea summit

* Malaysia's April factory output up 4.6 pct y/y, above

forecast

* Vietnam flat after 7 sessions of gains

By Nicole Pinto

June 11 (Reuters) - South East Asian shares were mostly

lacklustre on Monday with the Philippines and Singapore indexes

posting moderate gains, ahead of a U.S.-North Korea summit that

could pave the way for easing tensions on the Korean peninsula.

On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump said the summit with

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, in Singapore, could

"work out very nicely" as officials from both countries met to

narrow their differences.

The summit will be the first ever face-to-face meeting by

leaders of the two countries that have been enemies since the

1950-1953 Korean War.

Investors also started to focus on key central bank meetings

slated for the week.

Meanwhile, over the weekend at the Group of Seven summit,

Donald Trump took aim at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

saying he might double down on import tariffs on the sensitive

auto industry, while Trudeau said Canada could retaliate next

month.

Philippine shares edged up 0.4 percent with SM

Investments Corp gaining 1.1 percent and JG Summit

Holdings Inc up 2.8 percent.

Singapore shares rose 0.2 percent led by gains in

financials shares as DBS Group ended 0.5 percent

higher.

Vietnam shares ended flat, after seven sessions of

gains, with Vietnam Dairy Products JSC up 1.8 percent

and Vietjet Aviation JSC climbing 2.8 percent.

Malaysian shares ended 0.1 percent lower, weighed

down by financials such as Public Bank and CIMB Group

.

Earlier in the day, government data showed the country's

industrial output rose 4.6 in April from a year earlier, up from

the previous month, and above the 3.7 percent annual rise

forecast in a Reuters poll.

Indonesian financial markets are closed from June 11 to June

19 for Eid Al-Fitr, while the Philippines will be closed on

Tuesday for Independence Day.
