Looking Ahead in Asia

China should remain the key focus for markets this week, with the release of manufacturing activity data as well as the annual meeting of the National People’s Congress which could shed some light on economic policy.

It’s a busy week ahead in general for Asia, with manufacturing surveys from India, South Korea and Australia on Monday likely to give some insight into the outlook for global exports, while the Reserve Bank of Australia meets on Tuesday and earnings season in the region continues.

On the international scene, the European Central Bank meets on the Thursday while Friday sees the release of closely-watched U.S. jobs numbers.
