Hong Kong shares close up

Hong Kong shares had their best daily gain in a week on Thursday, helped by growth-sensitive counters after data showing a far stronger than expected trade performance by China in December.

The Hang Seng Index closed up 0.6 percent at 23,354.3, its best day since January 2. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong climbed 1 percent.

The CSI300 of top Shanghai and Shenzhen listings closed up 0.4 percent at 2,2530.6. The Shanghai Composite Index rose 0.4 percent. Both finished off the day's highs.
