Week Ahead APAC Economic Preview: Week of 11 February 2019

  • China trade, credit and direct investment data
  • Japan and Malaysia GDP
  • Further US-China trade talks
  • Special report on Japan-EU economic pact

Returning from its Golden Week break, China's data releases will be among the highlights of the coming week, providing fresh clues into economic trends at the start of the year. The official data follow Caixin and government-sponsored manufacturing PMI surveys, both of which signalled another deterioration. Further US-China trade talks in the same week will also attract great interest.

Japan and Malaysia will meanwhile report fourth quarter GDP figures, with a focus on the former after natural calamities hit output in the third quarter. In Asia, other notable data releases included South Korea's unemployment rate, trade data from the Philippines and Indonesia, as well as inflation figures in India and Taiwan.

Elsewhere, with the temporary end of the partial US government shutdown, new release dates* for affected data, including GDP, were announced. GDP figures in Euro area and Germany as well as UK inflation will also be closely monitored.

Our special report this week focuses on the newly-signed Japan-EU economic partnership agreement.
