Taiwan will release unemployment data for August; in July, the jobless rate was 4.36 percent.

China will provide updated prime rates for its one-year and five-year loans; previously, they were 3.85 percent and 4.65 percent, respectively.

Finally, the markets in South Korea (Chuseok Festival) and Hong Kong (Mid-Autumn Festival) are closed on Wednesday; both return to action on Thursday.
