Yet another shocking China fact

A year and a half ago, only one Chinese firm (Petrochina, at number 16) was included in the list of the 20 largest firms by market value (see here). As of mid-October, that proportion had risen to 8 out of 20, including 3 out of the top 6 spots.

While Facebook may have a crazier valuation, the sheer scale of the Chinese market's rise is breathtaking.
