Asia markets will have to contend with Chinese economic data for April alongside a slew of central bank policy decisions across the region in the week ahead.
On Monday, HSBC is due to release its final reading of manufacturing activity in the world's second biggest economy. It's preliminary reading stood at 48.3, marking a fourth straight month of contraction, and markets will be watching if the final figure matches China'official reading of 50.4.
However, all eyes will be on Thursday's trade figures following March's shocking 6.6 percent tumble in exports.
"China's foreign trade has been downbeat. Exports fell in year-on-year terms in February and March, and imports were similarly weak. Some of the export weakness reflects corrections from fake over-invoicing a year ago, but there are clearly some real demand issues at play. April data will show if the recent yuan depreciation has had any impact on export competitiveness," said analysts at Moody's Analytics in a note.
Consumer price and producer price inflation data are due Friday. March saw a drop in annual consumer inflation as foodprices eased following the spike during the Lunar New Year holidays and the declining trend is likely to continue.
"Inflation data are expected to show a fall back in CPI inflation to 2.1 percent," said Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy and chief economist at AMP Capital.
Producer prices in China have remained mired in deflationary territory for over two years as high inventories in industrial sectors force down prices and analysts widely agree that April's figure won't be any different.
