Hong Kong: Shares rise, taking cues from regional markets

[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares finished firmer on Tuesday, taking their cue from some buoyant markets in the region while shrugging off weakness in mainland China's markets.

The Hang Seng index rose 0.3 per cent, to 20,504.44, while the China Enterprises Index gained 0.4 per cent, to 8,841.86 points.

Hong Kong shares drew some inspiration from bullish stocks in Japan, where main indexes rose more than 1 per cent.

All main sectors in Hong Kong, with the exception of information technology stocks, ended the session in positive territory.
