Australia will see June results for the indexes of business confidence and conditions from National Australia Bank; in May, their scores were +7 and +1, respectively.

The central bank in Malaysia will wrap up its monetary policy meeting and then announce its decision on interest rates. The bank is expected to keep its benchmark lending rate steady at 3.00 percent.
