Your weekly lineup of Asia’s biggest business and political events
Welcome to Your Week in Asia.
China’s World Internet Conference is typically a headline event, but this year’s gathering in Wuzhen on Monday will be a low-key affair, with organizers keeping mum on participants. Big names from Silicon Valley such as Tim Cook and Sundar Pichai have appeared in previous years.
Instead, the key items to watch from China this week are the launch of the Chang’e 5 lunar probe, and Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s trip to Japan. In Hong Kong, Carrie Lam may have an easier ride than normal as she addresses a legislature without opposition members.
Economic data from India, Singapore and Taiwan are due this week. South Korea’s central bank meets Thursday.
