Hong Kong shares firmer, financials support

HONG KONG, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares were set to open slightly higher on Thursday, with the banking sector underpinning gains and helping to offset weakness in oil producers.

The Hang Seng index was projected to open up 0.1 percent at 20,914.3 while the China Enterprises index of top mainland firms was indicated to open down 0.1 percent.
