The eco watchers survey for current conditions is tipped to see a score of 45.8, up from 44.8 in March. The outlook survey is called at 48.0, down from 48.6 a month earlier.

Australia will see April results for the surveys of business confidence and conditions from NAB; in March, their scores were 0 and +7, respectively.
