Looking Ahead in Asia

It’s shaping up to be an eventful trading week for Asian investors, with a raft out key economic indicators out of China and yet another deadline looming for Greece after weekend bailout negotiations proved inconclusive.

At an emergency summit on Sunday, euro zone leaders told Athens that it needed to do more to restore the trust of its creditors before it can get the funds it urgently needs.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will have to push new austerity measures – harsher than the ones the Greek people so vehemently rejected in a referendum last weekend – through parliament by July 15. Only once the legislation is passed will the other 18 member countries of the euro zone agree to start negotiations for a third bailout program.
