** Both the benchmark Hang Seng Index and the Hang Seng China Enterprise Index edged up 0.2%.

** Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He soothed tech sector's nerves on Tuesday, saying the government supported the development of the sector and public listings for technology companies.

** The Hang Seng Tech Index, which had jumped roughly 14% over the past week in expectation of the meeting, slid 0.3% as some investors were disappointed with the lack of detailed support measures.

** Hong Kong-listed property shares rose 0.8% on news that more Chinese banks have reduced mortgage rates for first-time home buyers, but some cautioned the sector remains in trouble.

** "Housing prices dropped in more cities in April. The sector is going through a crisis," Zhiwei Zhang, president and chief economist at Pinpoint Asset Management, said.

** "The government policy has turned more supportive but not overwhelmingly so ... It is not clear when the housing sector will rebound."

** In its mid-year outlook, Morgan Stanley said it expects China's 2022 growth to come in at a below-target 5.2%, with the drag from the COVID-zero strategy "only partially offset by broad-based easing" as signalled in the Politburo meeting.

** Gains in energy and industrial shares were offset by losses in IT stocks.
