Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index rose 0.35 percent while mainland markets digested the release of slightly lower-than-expected China PMI data. The Shanghai Composite was flat and the Shenzhen Composite slipped 0.139 percent.
In China, official manufacturing PMI for July stood at 51.4, compared to a Reuters forecast of 51.6. The July figure was also below June's reading of 51.7. Meanwhile, the official services PMI came in at 54.5 for July, compared to the 54.9 seen in June.
While manufacturing PMI data tends to be more closely watched, China's pivot toward domestic consumption and away from investment-led growth means the services sector accounts for a bigger slice of the mainland economy.
