Hong Kong shares close

Hong Kong shares crept to another 19-month high, with last year's growth-sensitive laggards leading gains on Thursday as further positive China data affirmed the recovery trend in the world's second-largest economy.

The Hang Seng Index closed up 0.4 percent at 23,398.6, its highest close since June 1, 2011. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings ended up 0.8 percent.

Mainland Chinese markets remained shut on Thursday for the New Year holiday and will reopen on Friday.
