Shanghai Composite was up nearly 1% late in the morning session, as Premier Li stated the economy is on track to achieve around 7% GDP target for 2015, with April and May data showing continued momentum.

IMF chief economist Blanchard remarked the budget reforms proposed by Greece are not sufficient to achieve a budget surplus this year, and more "credible measures are needed to transform this into a surplus and maintain a surplus in the future..." Overnight, Greek govt spokesperson announced Athens is still seeking to have an agreement with creditors by end of May or early June period, and that the govt will attempt to make payments on loans as long as it can. AUD/USD and NZD/USD saw some initial downside, but since retreated to unchanged levels for the session at 0.7830 and 0.7310.
