Looking Ahead in Asia

Focus in Asia this week is likely to turn to political turmoil in Thailand and inflation data out of India, with China taking a back seat for the time being.

Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying delivers a key policy address on Wednesday, while Australia releases employment data for December on Thursday.

The outlook for U.S. monetary policy could also set the tone for trade in regional markets after Friday’s key non-farm payrolls report showed the U.S. economy created 74,000 new jobs in December, below expectations of 200,000.
