Acting Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Cutler shakes hands with Japan's deputy chief negotiator Oe ahead of their meeting for the TPP free trade negotiation, at the Foreign Ministry in TokyoBy Linda Sieg and Krista Hughes TOKYO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman arrived in Japan earlier than expected on Wednesday, Japanese media, for a last ditch push for a two-way deal seen as crucial to efforts to create one of the world's biggest trade pacts. Froman, who had been expected to arrive in Tokyo with U.S. President Barack Obama later in the day, was likely to meet Japanese Economy Minister Akira Amari, the reports said. Talks have been snagged largely on Japan's insistence on protecting politically powerful farm sectors such as beef. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told parliament the talks were tough but Japan was trying to keep some tariffs.

A group of disputed islands, Uotsuri island , Minamikojima and Kitakojima, known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China is seen in the East China SeaBy Linda Sieg and Elaine Lies TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama has said Washington welcomes China's rise but that engagement with Beijing would not come at the expense of its Asian allies - as Chinese state media greeted his imminent arrival in the region with a broadside accusing the United States of wanting to "cage" the emerging superpower. Obama's remarks, aimed at reassuring Japan and other allies, set against a robust commentary from China's state news agency Xinhua that also called the United States "myopic", demonstrate the delicate balancing act Obama faces on a week-long Asia tour. The four-nation trip that starts in Tokyo later on Wednesday comes at a time of rising tension in the region, and as the United States urges Japan's unpredictable neighbor North Korea not to conduct another nuclear test.

Workers are seen making national flags for the 2014 FIFA World Cup at a factory in Hangzhou, east China's Zhejiang province, on April 8, 2014Chinese manufacturing activity improved slightly in April as domestic demand showed "mild improvement", HSBC said on Wednesday, but it warned the world's second-largest economy was still showing signs of weakness. While the figure shows the country's crucial manufacturing sector is still shrinking it is doing so at a slower rate. "Domestic demand showed mild improvement and deflationary pressures eased," HSBC economist Qu Hongbin said in a statement. Last week Beijing said the economy weakened for the second quarter in a row in January-March, growing 7.4 percent year-on-year, with leaders blaming slow global recovery and domestic structural reforms.

A worker assembles a generator at a factory in HefeiBy Kevin Yao BEIJING (Reuters) - China's factory activity shrank for the fourth straight month in April, signaling economic weakness into the second quarter, a preliminary survey showed on Wednesday, although the pace of decline eased helped by policy steps to arrest the slowdown. "It's generally in line (with expectations), reflecting that the growth momentum is stabilizing," said Zhou Hao, China economist at ANZ in Shanghai, who expected economic growth to pick up slightly to 7.5 percent in the second quarter. Annual growth in China's economy slowed to 7.4 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier, its slowest pace in 18 months, but the pace was just ahead of market expectations and seemed to soothe fears of a sharp downturn. China's central bank will cut the amount of deposits rural banks must hold as reserves by between 0.5 and 2 percentage points, it said on Tuesday, the latest in a series of measures to help combat a slowing economy.
