China, Hong Kong shares rebound 25/2/21

China and Hong Kong shares rose on Thursday, as a strong show by property firms helped the markets recover from a sharp drop in the previous session, while investors digested news about Hong Kong raising stamp duty on stock trading.

The stamp duty paid on listed stock trades by both buyers and sellers will be increased to 0.13 per cent from the current 0.1 per cent on Aug. 1.
