According to ING, the resurgent Covid-19 cases and tighter restrictions to break the infection chain have probably stalled the recovery in both the economies in the last quarter.
ING said Japan is on the verge of falling into recession after it contracted 1% quarter-on-quarter in the Q1.
The research house said the same applied to the Thai economy, which at 0.2% q-o-q barely grew in Q1 and likely contracted as much as -2.7% q-o-q in Q2.
Despite this, ING said low base effects swung their year-on-year growth rates back into positive territory after more than a year of negative readings.
China data dumpChina’s July industrial output, retail sales figures, and fixed asset investment are due this week. In addition, China will also announce its August one-year and five-year loan prime rate (LPR) fixings on Friday.
A Bloomberg poll of 17 economists showed both one-year LPR and five-year LPR are expected to be unchanged at 3.85% and 4.65% respectively.
UOB Global Economics and Markets Research shared the same view although it said the People’s Bank of China might need to cut the Reserve Requirement Ratio further to pump more liquidity back into the system with another 3.75 trillion yuan of the medium lending facility maturing in the rest of 2021.
