    A worker stands on a crane which is parked at a construction site at Keihin industrial zone in Kawasaki, south of Tokyo, June 13, 2012. Japan's core machinery orders rose more than expected in April, suggesting that rebuilding from last year's earthquake will offset some of the pain from a strong yen and Europe's debt crisis to support the fragile economy.

    (L-R) Bank offices of Santander, Banco Sabadell and Caixa Laietana are seen in Alella, near Barcelona, June 12, 2012.

    A worker treads on latex to remove water content at the state-owned rubber factory at Jember in Indonesia's East Java province June 11, 2012. Global natural rubber output is seen at 10.475 million tonnes in 2012, nearly 2 percent above an April estimate of 10.297 million tonnes, on higher first-quarter Thai production, the Association of Natural Rubber Producing Countries said on Wednesday. While total consumption by members of the ANRPC was likely to rise this year, the debt crisis in Europe and its possible impact on Asia cast a shadow over the demand prospect for natural rubber, the group said in a statement. The crisis in the euro-zone and worrisome economic trends world over seem to have damaged the demand prospects for natural rubber, said the group. Picture taken June 11, 2012.
