However, experts say that South-East Asian artwork has a major advantage: its price tag, with Vietnamese, Indonesian and Malaysian pieces popular on the international scene. "You can spend HK$50,000 - HK$100,000 ($6,400 - $12,900) and buy a very good quality artist," said Saunderson.

APEC throws out Hong Kong journalists who shouted questions to Philippine leader

Aquino did not reply to their questions. Now TV footage showed an APEC staff member telling the reporters: You ambushed one of our visitors. Eight Hong Kong tourists and their guide were killed on a tourist bus by a dismissed Manila police officer in a daylong hostage crisis in 2010 that ended with a botched police rescue.
