SHANGHAI – Chinese shares were up 0.42 percent in early trading on Wednesday ahead of a holiday, but gains were likely to be capped before China announces economic figures later in the month, dealers said.

The government will announce March inflation and trade figures next week, followed by other indicators, including gross domestic product for the first quarter, later this month.
