  • The impact of US and Chinese tariffs has been noticeable in Asian export growth but US manufacturing activity is yet to be hit hard.

  • In Australia, the RBA continues to keep rates on hold with tighter credit conditions and lower house prices constraining the household sector.

  • Japan’s economy likely returned to growth in the June quarter, with wage growth helping to alleviate deflationary pressures.
