    Europe Debt Crisis Threatens Asian Growth

    Post  hurricanemaxi on Tue 01 Nov 2011, 5:15 pm

    Australia’s central bank cut interest rates for the first time since 2009 and a Chinese manufacturing index slid, stoking concern that Europe’s debt crisis is weighing on Asia’s export-dependent economies.

    The Reserve Bank of Australia today reduced its key lending rate to 4.5 percent from 4.75 percent, saying Europe’s woes are starting to hit Asian trade. In China, a purchasing managers’ index fell to 50.4, the lowest level since February 2009, while South Korea reported the smallest gain in exports in two years.

    Asian stocks fell for a second day as slowing growth in the region threatens to limit a global expansion already constrained by elevated unemployment in the U.S. and Europe’s crisis. The Chinese report showed a contraction in export orders, fueling speculation that Premier Wen Jiabao may loosen policies to support the world’s second-biggest economy.

    “Similar to 2008, China has a lot of potential for fiscal stimulus and that’s true across the region as well,” said Frederic Neumann, co-head of Asian economics at HSBC in Hong Kong. “The situation in Europe clearly remains challenging.”

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index slipped 2 percent as of 5:10 p.m. in Tokyo.

    RBA Governor Glenn Stevens indicated that easing inflation had allowed the nation’s first rate cut since April 2009. The local currency and government bond yields fell.
    ‘Significant Slowdown’

    Trade “is starting to see some effects of a significant slowing in economic activity in Europe, where the prospects are for economic weakness to continue,” Stevens said in a statement. It is “likely to be some time yet before concerns about the European situation can definitively be laid to rest” and financial turmoil may have made companies and households cautious, he said.

    The Australian dollar dropped to $1.0485 at 3:18 p.m. in Sydney from $1.0530 yesterday in New York and $1.0527 before the decision. The yield on 10-year government bonds fell eight basis points, or 0.08 percentage point, from yesterday’s close to 4.43 percent.

    Stevens joins Group of 20 counterparts from Jakarta to Ankara to Brasilia in easing monetary policy to bolster domestic demand. In Japan, officials yesterday intervened to weaken the yen as the currency’s gains to post-World War II highs threaten that nation’s exports.
