 Facts
  1. Over half the Top 100 brands on the Hurun report are government-owned, but non-government-owned brands on the rise, led by IT firms Tencent QQ and Baidu.
  2. With 200 million subscribers and 75% of the mainland market, China Mobile is now the world's biggest cellular service provider. The China Mobile brand is strongly supported by advertising, promotional activities, and strategic alliances, as evidenced by its strong partnership agreement with Sony Ericsson. In 2009, SMS revenue accounted for 12% of China Mobil's total revenue.
  3. The Bank of China was the first of China's big state-owned banks to go public. The Bank of China can claim many firsts in terms of products issued, such as the first overseas Chinese bank, the first credit card in China, and the first to move into telephone banking.
  4. China Construction Bank holds nearly two-thirds of China's mortgages. The bank will continue to benefit from the housing boom-as well as a strategic investment by Bank of America. It had a spectacularly successful global IPO in late 2005 that raised about $11 billion.
  5. The Chinese banking system is dominated by four state-owned banks: The Industrial and Commercial Bank (ICBC), The People's Construction Bank of China, The Bank of China and The Agricultural bank of China. These banks control 80 percent of China's financial assets.
