Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke meanwhile testifies on the economy before a House panel on Wednesday and a Senate committee on Thursday.
His comments are likely to be watched closely by traders inside and outside Asia, keen for further clues on the likely timing for an unwinding of the U.S. central bank's $85 billion-a-month bond buying program.
Last week, Bernanke cheered markets by saying the U.S. economy continues to need a highly accommodative monetary policy.
"We think Bernanke will reinforce the notion of interest rates remaining low long after the QE [quantitative easing] tap is turned off. In other words, a much higher bar for considering rate hikes," analysts at Mizuho Corporate Bank wrote in a note.

Back in Asia, India releases it key inflation gauge, the wholesale price index (WPI) later on Monday.
Analysts at Morgan Stanley expect the June WPI to come in between a range of 4.9-5.1 percent from a year earlier. The WPI rose 4.7 percent rise in May.
"We expect inflation to edge up in June to between 4.9 and 5.1 percent year-on-year on account of a sequential increase in food (vegetable) prices as crops were impacted due to excess monsoon rain and some pass through of rupee depreciation," they said in a note.
The Indian rupee hit a record low of around 61.21 per dollar earlier this month as expectations for an unwinding of Fed stimulus boosted the U.S. dollar sharply higher against both major and emerging market currencies.
Elsewhere in Asia, Hong Kong releases its unemployment rate for June on Thursday, while on Wednesday Malaysia releases its latest inflation data and Singapore publishes its non-oil domestic export numbers for June.

The Singapore export numbers could attract some attention for local markets looking for further signs of a recovery in the city-state, which posted stronger-than-expected economic growth numbers for the second quarter on Friday.
