Aug 16 (Reuters) - Trading in shares of China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd was suspended on Wednesday, the stock exchange said.
China Unicom, the weakest of three big state-owned telecoms firms, is due to report earnings later in the day.
Last month, Reuters reported that Baidu Inc and JD.com would join other big Chinese technology firms to jointly invest about $12 billion in the Shanghai-listed unit of China Unicom, the weakest of three big state-owned telecoms firms, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter.
