appetite, reflected in regional equity markets. Australian press reported that
China has banned meat imports from four Australian abattoirs in what seems to be
another escalation of bilateral tensions. In regional data, China's CPI slowed
more than exp., while factory-gate inflation was more negative than forecast.
