Elsewhere in the region, Tokyo stocks opened lower as the stronger yen raised concerns for Japan's exporters. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange slipped 0.31 per cent, or 52.63 points, to 16,883.75 in opening deals, while the broader Topix index fell 0.33 per cent, or 4.42 points, to 1,354.55.
