Japan is on Friday scheduled to release final July figures for industrial production, highlighting a modest day for Asia-Pacific economic activity. Little change is expected from last month's preliminary reading for a 1.2 percent decline on month and a 1.0 percent fall on year.
New Zealand will provide August numbers for food prices and non-resident bond holdings, plus September results for its consumer confidence index. Food prices were up 0.2 percent on month in July, while the consumer confidence index was up 3.3 percent to a score of 114.1 in August. Bond holdings came in at 62.8 percent in July.
Singapore will announce July figures for retail sales, which are expected to fall 1.1 percent on month and 5.0 percent on year. That follows the 0.4 percent monthly fall and the 0.9 percent annual contraction in June.
