At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was up 0.11% at 3,573.34, shrugging off concerns that policy makers would shift to a tighter stance to cool gains in share prices.

The blue-chip CSI300 index was up 0.27%, with its banking sector sub-index higher by 1.41%, and the industrial sub-index jumped 2.07%. 

Japanese stocks ended higher Wednesday, on hopes of better corporate results after the International Monetary Fund raised its forecast for global growth.

The Nikkei share average ended 0.31% higher at 28,635.21, and the broader Topix gained 0.65% at 1,860.07

Aussie shares closed lower Wednesday, dragged lower by losses in the resources sector, while a record-low underlying inflation in the last Quarter signaled a possible retention of the accommodative policy stance by the country’s central bank.

The S&P/ASX 200 index closed 0.7% lower to 6,780.6, pulling back from a 11-month high marked Monday. Tuesday markets were closed for a public holiday.
