Shares in Hong Kong have risen 1.09 per cent in early trade, tracking a strong performance on Wall Street, which was buoyed by solid corporate earnings.
The Hang Seng Index was 237.02 points higher at 22,043.63 in the opening minutes of trade.
Chinese shares were up 0.36 per cent in early trading as well, helped by bargain hunting after gains in US stocks.
