Asian shares edge higher, powered by Chinese companies

Mainland carmakers, insurers, airlines among top performers on A300 index

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Asian shares outside of Japan advanced Tuesday, led by mainland companies on lingering hopes over U.S.-China trade.

The Nikkei Asia300 Index of companies outside Japan advanced 0.3% to 1,338.55. Chinese companies listed in Hong Kong contributed the most to the gauge's advance, catching up with yesterday's rally in regional equities after the U.S. and China agreed to resume trade negotiations. Financial markets in Hong Kong were closed on Monday.
