HONG KONG, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Carlyle Group [CYL.UL] co-founder David Rubenstein said the best deal in current markets was for companies to buy their own debt, and said Asia — especially China — was the best region for investors.

“While growth will be down in Asia, it will not be negative,” the private equity executive said at a conference on Thursday. “Asia has been more resilient to the downturn.” (Reporting by Michael Flaherty; Editing by Jonathan Hopfner & Anne Marie Roantree)
