Hong Kong stocks set to rise 1 percent at open

Hong Kong, June 5 (Reuters) - Battered Hong Kong shares are set to open firmer on Tuesday, partly on short-covering ahead of emergency G7 talks on the euro zone debt crisis, though investors remain reluctant to take on fresh positions amid an increasingly gloomy global outlook.

The Hang Seng index was set to open up just over 1 percent at 18,373.22. The China Enterprises index of top locally listed mainland firms was indicated to open up 0.8 percent. (Reporting by Vikram Subhedar; Editing by Kim Coghill)
