    ECB Liikanen: The European Central Bank is ready to boost liquidity in the credit market by issuing another long-term loan if necessary. The ECB carried out so-called long-term refinancing operations (LTROs) to ease funding strains at the height of the euro zone debt crisis. "I am ready to act, if necessary," Liikanen told, when asked if another such loan was planned. He did not give a timeline for any such move.

    Greece's negotiations with its international creditors begin this week amid a difference of opinion in certain spending and revenue projections. Speaking to journalists after a meeting between officials from the EU, the ECB and the IMF and Greece's Finance Minister, Yannis Stournaras, the official said that the Troika initially agrees with the ministry's projections of a smaller recession for this year, with GDP is expected to contract by -3.8% instead of the official target of -4.2%, but the differences between the groups remain.

    Italian Economy Minister Fabrizio Saccomanni will resign if the fragile coalition government flouts European Union deficit spending limits in favor of tax cuts, he told Corriere della Sera newspaper on Sunday. Italy's accounts are heading toward overshooting the EU deficit limit this year, Saccomanni said on Friday, just months after the country was taken off a black list for running excessive budget gaps in the past. "Promises must be kept, otherwise I'm not staying," Saccomanni was quoting saying in an interview with Corriere. "I must defend my credibility, and I have no political ambitions." To meet the EU deficit target, Saccomanni needs 1.4 billion euros and he indicated a one-percentage-point increase of the main sales-tax rate of 21 percent scheduled for October 1 cannot be cancelled without worsening the public accounts.

    A Chinese manufacturing index rose to a six-month high at 51.2 in September, adding to signs of a rebound in the world's second-largest economy after a two-quarter slowdown.
