The Business School of Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE) in Beijing, and the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI), a joint center of the Columbia Law School and the Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York, are releasing today the results of their research report profiling the top 20 Chinese multinational enterprises (MNEs), ranked in terms of foreign assets. The report is part of a long-term study of the rapid global expansion of MNEs from emerging markets. The research for this report covers the period from 2011 to 2013. The information of the top 20 Chinese MNEs is mainly drawn from the China Enterprise Confederation’s (CEC) reports and the information from the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), complemented by our additional research on individual companies from their official reports and websites. It provides detailed and comparative insights on companies that are not found in other publicly available sources.
