Taiwan is set to announce March numbers for its consumer price index and wholesale price index on Monday, headlining a light day for Asian economic news. Analysts are expecting a decline of between 0.6 and 0.87 percent on year for CPI following the 1.31 percent annual contraction in February. Wholesale prices are seen higher by 2.28 percent on year after the 9.04 percent annual decline in the previous month.

Japan will provide February figures for its leading index, with analysts expecting a score of 75.3 following the 77.2 market in January. Also, the Bank of Japan kicks off its two-day monetary policy meeting and will announce any adjustments to interest rates at its conclusion on Tuesday.

The China stock market will be closed on Monday in observance of Ching Ming Festival, while the Stock Exchange of Thailand will be closed for Chakri Day.
