Hong Kong: Hong Kong stocks surged more than one percent Friday, in line with a regional advance as tepid inflation figures soothed concerns about a sharp lift in US interest rates this year.

The Hang Seng Index rose 1.36 percent, or 418.62 points, to 31,227.84 by the break, putting it on course for a fifth successive gain.
