The smaller Shenzhen index ended up 0.08% and the start-up board ChiNext Composite index was higher by 1.101%.

Japan shares held close to a 29.5 yr high Thursday as major countries moved closer to rolling out coronavirus vaccines, while hopes of more stimulus also boosted sentiment.

The Nikkei 225 Index ended up a modest 0.03% at 26,809.37, but settled near its highest since April 1991, while the broader Topix +0.07% at 1,775.25.
