The Shanghai Composite index climbed 52 points, or 1.9%, to 2,804 Friday ahead of the conclusion of U.S.-China trade talks in Washington, with media reports suggesting that Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will meet U.S. President Trump later in the day, said Trading Economics. Gains came in despite heightened global growth concerns on the back of weaker-than-expected economic data in the U.S. and the Eurozone. Also, Hong Kong's Hang Seng gained 186 points, or 0.7%, to 28,816. Japan's Nikkei was off 0.2%.
