Japan's manufacturing growth improved slightly in August, final survey figures from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The Nikkei flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI rose to 52.5 in August from 52.3 in July. That was in line with the flash data published on August 23.

Any reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.

In line with stronger inflows of new work, firms raised production and employment in August.

However, business sentiment dipped amid uncertainty arising from global geopolitics. On the price front, input price inflation remained sharp in August and selling prices grew at the fastest rate in almost ten years.

Investment in new dwellings increased 3.6 percent for the quarter. with strength observed in Victoria and South Australia. This strength was reflected in the Construction industry, which grew 1.9 percent for the quarter.

Australia's Trade Surplus Falls In July



Australia's trade surplus decreased in July, the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported Thursday.

The trade surplus fell to a seasonally adjusted A$1.55 billion in July from A$1.94 billion in June. Nonetheless, this was above the expected level of A$1.45 billion.

Data showed that exports dropped 1 percent from the previous month, while imports remained broadly unchanged in July.

Export growth is likely to slow further through the second half of the year given the bulk of Australia's major LNG, iron ore and coal mines are now approaching output capacity and scope for further marginal increases appears limited, Tom Kennedy, an economist at J.P. Morgan, said.

As a result, the net export contribution to real GDP growth is expected to fade and become neutral by end-2018, the economist added.

Ireland Construction Growth Remains Strong In August



Ireland's construction sector growth remained elevated in August, despite easing from July, survey data from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The Ulster Bank construction Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 58.3 in August from 60.7 in July. However, any reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.

"The August survey results were also notable as they marked the 60th consecutive monthly expansion of construction activity, indicating that survey respondents have now been in recovery mode for five years following the extreme collapse which took hold during the financial crisis," Simon Barry, Chief Economist Republic of Ireland at Ulster Bank, said.

Among three monitored categories, the fastest growth was on residential projects. but, the pace of expansion moderated from July. The rate of growth in commercial activity also eased, while civil engineering activity rose for the second straight month.

New orders increased sharply, though the rate of growth slowed for the third successive month. Rising workloads forced companies to raise their staffing levels and purchasing activity in August.

On the price front, the rate of input price inflation quickened amid rising costs for a range of raw materials.

Firms were confident that new work on housing projects will help lead to increases in construction activity over the coming year.

Australia's Consumer Sentiment Deteriorates In September



Australia's consumer confidence deteriorated in September reflecting political instability and rises in mortgage interest rates, data from Westpac showed Wednesday.

The Westpac Melbourne Institute Index of Consumer Sentiment declined 3 percent to 100.5 in September. This was weakest since November last year.

Although the index remained in positive territory, the reading was just above the 100 level.

Data suggested that confidence has been affected by increases in mortgage interest rates, political instability and household budget pressures.

All sub-indices recorded declines in September with the 'economic outlook, next 5 years' showing the biggest move, a 5.8 percent decrease.

Consumer views around family finances remained notably weaker. The 'finances vs a year ago' and 'finances, next 12 months' sub-indexes both registered 3.6 percent falls in September.

Westpac said aside from the rise in mortgage interest rates, household budgets were also coming under persistent pressure from slow growth in wages, declining house prices in Sydney and Melbourne and the rising cost of petrol.

Further, data showed that consumers remained relatively downbeat on spending. The 'time to buy a major household item' sub-index declined 2.2 percent in September.

UK Household Finance Index Remains Close To Record High



UK households' perceptions of financial wellbeing remained close to survey-high in September, data from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The household finance index held steady at 45.9 in September, which was the second highest score since the survey began in February 2009.

Household finances were underpinned by improved earnings from employment and favorable labor market conditions.

UK households' outlook regarding future budgets strengthened in September. Moreover, income from employment increased in September.

At the same time, job security perceptions deteriorated, in contrast to the generally upbeat signal from the current and future household finance assessements.

Although expectations of further inflation were sustained in September, the proportion of households anticipating rising living costs was the lowest since November 2016, data showed.

"The HFI survey pointed to the second-lowest level of pessimism about future finances since the EU referendum," Joe Hayes, an economist at IHS Markit, said.

Nonetheless, the latest survey still raised some concerns about the outlook for consumer spending, Hayes added.

Malaysia's Inflation Eases More Than Forecast



Malaysia's inflation eased more-than-expected in August on fuel cost, figures from the Department of Statistics showed Wednesday.

Consumer price inflation slowed to 0.2 percent in August, the lowest rate within 42 months, the statistical office said. The rate was expected to drop to 0.4 percent from 0.9 percent in July.

The slowdown was largely driven by cost of fuel which caused the index of transport to rise 2.1 percent compared to the 6.7 percent increase logged in July.

Also, prices of housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels advanced 2 percent, education by 1.1 percent and food and non-alcoholic beverages rose 0.4 percent, contributing to the increase in annual inflation.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices gained 0.2 percent. During January to August, consumer prices registered an annual growth of 1.3 percent.
