— This is the script of CNBC's news report for China's CCTV on August 12, Monday.

Welcome to CNBC's Business Daily. It's a data heavy week ahead.

We got second quarte GDP data out of Japan today which came in at an annualized 2.6%.

That was a full percentage lower than forecast.

Over on Wall Street, the spot light will be on the U-S consumer with major retailers stepping up with earnings this week including Macy's, Wal-Mart Stores and Kohl's.

We will also get U-S retail sales data due tomorrow. According to a Reuters Poll, the July data is set to show a 0.3% gain since June.

Inflation will be in focus on Thursday with U-S July CPI set to rise by 2%. That's according to a Reuters poll.

The data barrage continues with July trade numbers out of Korea, Singapore retail sales and a decision from Indonesia's central bank due on the same day.

On Friday we wind down towards the weekend with Hong Kong reporting Q2 GDP and the US releasing housing starts.
