img Most Asian markets declined Friday, paring the strong gains recorded earlier in the week, with mainland Chinese shares sliding ahead of a three-day weekend amid lingering economic worries.

Hong Kong equities climbed as a number of frontline companies reported strong profit growth. Several Japanese stocks also ended higher on the back of upbeat results and forecasts, although the broader market fell in choppy trade after the country’s central bank refrained from announcing any fresh monetary easing measures.
