The International Monetary Fund disbursed a fresh $1.17 billion to Ireland on Monday, approving the country's progress under its two-year-old rescue program.

- China foreign-investment inflows show 12th decline in 13 mths . Foreign direct investment in China fell for the 12th time in 13 months, suggesting the nation’s economic-growth rebound has yet to attract a fresh influx of capital spending from abroad.

FDI inflows in the first 11 months of the year fell 3.6 percent to $100 billion .

Members noted that a range of data on the Chinese economy suggested that growth there had stabilised. Fiscal policy easing, including support for infrastructure spending, and improved conditions in the residential property market had supported growth in industrial production and demand for bulk commodities. Exports had continued to expand, particularly to the United States, following weakness in the middle of the year.
- Japan’s incoming Prime Minister Shinzo Abe backed the central bank when it raised interest rates in 2006, a move he now says was a mistake. His shift may signal less tolerance for deflation in the third-largest economy. Abe, whose party swept to victory in elections for the lower house of Parliament two days ago, will have the chance to reshape the Bank of Japan next year, when the terms of its governor and two deputies expire. He reiterated yesterday he wants a 2 percent inflation target for the BOJ, which is forecast to boost its asset purchases as soon as Dec. 20.
