China stocks declined Tuesday as solid economic data raised worries of official policy tightening.

The CSI300 index fell 0.7% to 5,128.01 at the end of the morning session, while the Shanghai Composite Index dipped 0.3% to 3,473.32.

Japanese shares gave up early gains and slipped Tuesday, as investors booked profits from recent rallies.

Nikkei share average lost 0.81% to 29,844.81 by 0208 GMT after hitting the 30,000 mark for the 1st time in more than 2 wks Monday. The broader TOPIX fell 0.74% to 1,968.80.

Australian shares rose Tuesday on market sentiment bolstered by Wall Street’s strong finish overnight, while investors waited for a policy meeting of the country’s central bank.

The S&P/ASX 200 index rose as much as 1.2% at 6,909, hitting its highest mark since mid-February. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index fell 0.3%.
