[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks opened lower on Wednesday as caution over a Greek debt grows with questions over whether Athens can complete an agreement reached last week with eurozone partners.

The city's benchmark Hang Seng Index fell 55.11 points, or 0.22 per cent, to 24,781.65.

Markets in mainland China were closed for the Lunar New Year holiday, and were due to reopen on Wednesday.
