Week Ahead Asia-Pacific Economic Preview: Week of 6 August 2018

  • Japan Second Quarter GDP
  • July US Consumer Price Inflation
  • RBA Policy Decision
  • Special Focus on India

Following last week's global PMI figures, which showed worldwide manufacturing output rising at its slowest rate in nearly two years amid a near-stagnation of global trade flows, IHS Markit Sector PMI data for Asia, Europe and the US will add colour and clarity to the global growth picture early on in the week.

Official figures on US inflation and European output offer further insight into the effects on trade and prices of protectionist measures, whilst in the APAC region, Japanese data dominates, with a raft of figures on economic performance culminating in the release of Q2 GDP on Friday.

This note also includes a special feature on the Indian economy, assessing long-term growth prospects and discussing key threats to the outlook.
