This week is expected to be relatively quiet for Asian markets, with a gauge of Chinese factory activity and a barrage of Japanese data the likely focal points.
On Monday, HSBC's China flash purchasing manager's index (PMI) for June rose to 50.8, marking the first expansion in six months. The figure was well above Reuters forecasts for 49.7 and the bank's final May reading of 49.4.
The data follows Premier Li Keqiang's optimistic comments last week that the economy would be able to avoid a hard landing without strong stimulus.
In Japan, a suite of data is expected to confirm that the world's third-largest economy saw weaker activity in the second quarter. On Friday, Tokyo will release employment, consumer price inflation (CPI), household spending and retail sales for the month of May.
