Vietnam’s benchmark VN Index ticked up 0.74 per cent by midday on Wednesday, with most blue-chips advancing in extended weak trade ahead of a long public holiday.

Dairy product maker Vinamilk, Vietnam’s second-biggest firm by market value, led the risers to gain 1.94 per cent, followed by Masan Group Corp with a 1.84-per cent increase.

Most shares moved marginally in extended low liquidity, as investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of Vietnam’s biggest public holiday to celebrate the Lunar New Year on February 16-23.

Volume at midday stood at 38.7 million shares, bringing the daily average this week to 73 million, lower than the 85 million last week and 125 million during January 26-30, Reuters data showed.
