(11-18 16:22)

Stocks in Hong Kong jumped 2.73 percent after China last week unveiled details of a reform drive that includes giving private firms a greater role in the economy.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index ended up 627.91 points at 23,660.06 on turnover of HK$112.08 billion.
In Shanghai, shares ended 2.87 percent higher. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index climbed 61.39 points to 2,197.22 on turnover of 143.2 billion yuan.
The rise was the biggest single-day gain for the Shanghai index since September 9, when it surged 3.39 percent.—AFP
