[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares finished up on Thursday, following other Asian bourses higher, on hopes the Bank of England will cut rates to ward off a possible recession that could impact some Hong Kong companies.

The Hang Seng index rose 1.1 per cent, to 21,561.06. The China Enterprises Index also gained 1.1 per cent, to 9,010.10 points.

Gains were broad-based with finance, telecom, services and information technology stocks all rising.
