Looking Ahead in Asia

A deluge of economic data from China, central bank meetings in Indonesia and the Philippines, and inflation and trade numbers from India are all in the lineup for Asian markets this week.

On Monday, China released data that showed producer price deflation easing. The producer price index in August fell 1.6 percent from a year earlier, compared to a 2.3 percent on-year fall in July. The consumer price index for the month rose an annualized 2.6 percent, in line with expectations.

The figures came after data at the weekend showed Chinese exports rose a stronger-than-expected 7.2 percent on-year in August.
