Global factory output weakened in October as widespread recession fears, high inflation and China's zero-COVID policy hurt demand, business surveys show.

Japan's Jibun Bank Japan Manufacturing PMI fell to 50.7 in October from September's 50.8 final, marking the weakest growth since January last year. India was an outlier with factory activity expanding at a stronger pace in October as demand remained solid.1 month ago The West Australian

US President Kamala Harris has called an emergency gathering of several allies on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific economic summit, emerging with leaders of five other countries to condemn North Korea after it test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile. "This conduct by North Korea most recently is a brazen violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions," she said. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who is in Bangkok for the APEC meeting, told reporters North Korea had "repeated its provocations with unprecedented frequency". French President Emmanuel Macron, a special guest at the summit, urged APEC leaders to re-embrace international rules and multilateralism for global peace and stability. Russia is a member of both G20 and APEC but President Vladimir Putin has stayed away from the summits.14 days ago The West Australian
