ADVISORY-Thomson Reuters/INSEAD Asian Business Sentiment Survey 2018 Q2

June 20 (Reuters) - Business confidence among Asian companies slipped for the first time in three quarters, a Thomson Reuters/INSEAD survey showed, on mounting worries U.S. protectionist policies would trigger tit-for-tat reprisals and undermine the global trading system.

The Thomson Reuters/INSEAD Asian Business Sentiment Index , representing a six-month outlook from 61 firms, fell to 74 in the second quarter from a seven-year high of 79 in the prior three months.

The survey was conducted over June 1-15.

A reading above 50 indicates a positive outlook.
