18 October 2013 Last updated at 06:48 BST

In Malaysia, Westports Holdings will be making its trading debut later on Friday.

The port operator, which is partly owned by the Hong Kong billionnaire Li Ka-shing, raised more than $600m (£371m) from the share sale.

The listing comes at time when market uncertainties have seen many companies either call-off or postpone their planned initial public offerings (IPOs).

The BBC's Jennifer Pak reports from Port Klang on whether this IPO points to a revival of investor confidence in the region.
