Hong Kong shares closed up 0.78 percent Friday, reversing some of the previous session's losses triggered by a trio of gloomy figures from China.
The benchmark Hang Seng Index gained 174.16 points to 22,568.24 on turnover of HK$58.03 billion ($7.48 billion).
Chinese shares, however, lost ground owing to uncertainty over the outlook for the domestic economy, dealers said.
The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index dropped 1.17 percent, or 25.09 points, to close at 2,113.69 on turnover of 99.5 billion yuan ($16.3 billion). It edged down 0.10 percent for the week.
