South Korea's exports in October suffered their fastest decline in more than two years and missed expectations as shipments to neighbouring China tumbled.

Japan's manufacturing activity grew at its slowest pace in 21 months in October on marked declines in output and overall new orders, as exports were partly hurt by worsening conditions in China and South Korea.
