Hang Seng ends on positive column
(05-22 16:15)

Hong Kong rose 0.51 percent on Thursday following a rally on Wall Street and as a survey indicated manufacturing activity in China had seen a sharp improvement in May.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index was up 117.24 points at 22,953.76 on turnover of HK$62.52 billion, AFP reports.
However, in China the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index reversed early advances owing to profit-taking, ending down 0.18 percent, or 3.66 points, at 2,021.29 on turnover of 59.5 billion yuan.
The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged up 0.07 percent, or 0.68 points, to 1,028.68 on turnover of 81.6 billion yuan.
