Some notable releases on the Asia-Pacific economic calendar in the week ahead include New Zealand's CPI, China’s House Price Index, Australia’s jobs report, and Japan’s inflation rate.

New Zealand's Consumer Price Index climbed by 0.5% in Q1'18 vs the previous quarter, with alcohol and tobacco costs contributing the most to the upward swing.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics will unveil its latest report on the nation’s labor market Wednesday, after the country's unemployment rate staged a surprise drop in May.

Interactive Brokers senior market analyst Steven Levine provides some highlights for what to look for in the Asia-Pacific region in the week beginning July 16.
