The Hang Seng index slipped 0.19 per cent, or 43.38 points, to 22,280.53.

And the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index shed 0.06 per cent, or 1.93 points, to 3,205.06 while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, inched up 0.02 per cent, or 0.45 points, to 2,124.85.
