HONG KONG, March 8 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares rose more than 1 percent on Friday, lifting both key indexes up for the week, with growth-sensitive counters buoyed by Wall Street's strength and an unexpected surge in Chinese exports.
The Hang Seng Index closed up 1.4 percent at 23,092 points. The China Enterprises Index of the leading Chinese listings in Hong Kong climbed 1.5 percent. They each rose 0.9 and 1.2 percent, respectively, this week.
