The Hang Seng Index jumped 0.82 per cent, or 234.02 points, to 28,776.64.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index dipped 0.08 per cent, or 2.32 points, to 3,042.58, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged down 0.07 per cent, or 1.17 points, to 1,5615.38.
