HONG KONG - Asian shares were mixed Wednesday as downbeat data from China and Japan sparked renewed concerns for growth in the region's two biggest economies.

Shanghai ended flat at 2,222.88 and Hong Kong closed up 0.81%, or 200.93 points, at 24,890.34 as new statistics showed key indicators including industrial production slowed in July.
