A deluge of economic data from China, central bank meetings in Indonesia and the Philippines, and inflation and trade numbers from India are all in the lineup for Asian markets this week.
On Monday, China released data that showed producer price deflation easing. The producer price index in August fell 1.6 percent from a year earlier, compared to a 2.3 percent on-year fall in July. The consumer price index for the month rose an annualized 2.6 percent, in line with expectations.
The figures came after data at the weekend showed Chinese exports rose a stronger-than-expected 7.2 percent on-year in August.
Investors will be scrutinizing industrial output, fixed asset investment and retail sales data on Tuesday for signs that the world's second-biggest economy is stabilizing after a slowdown.
Analysts polled by Reuters expect industrial output rose 9.9 percent in August from a year earlier, compared with a 9.7 percent increase in July. Retail sales are forecast to rise 13.2 percent on-year in August, the same as in July.
"On the data front the focus is likely to be on China, with key activity data due Tuesday likely to show that the improvement in growth evident in July continued into August," Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy and chief economist at AMP Capital in Sydney, said in a note.
"In particular, growth in industrial production is likely to have continued to edge higher," he added.
