Китайские компании впервые заняли верхние строчки Топ-500 крупнейших компаний мира Fortune Global

Китайские корпорации заняли три позиции из пяти самых крупных компаний мира рейтинга «Fortune Global 500» 2016 года. На втором, третьем и четвертом месте списка расположились Китайские электрические сети (прибыль 329 млрд долл), Китайская национальная нефтехимическая корпорация (CNPC, 299) и ее близнец Sinopec (294).  ТОП-10 самых крупных корпораций всего за год поменялся из «американского» в «китайский»: если в 2015 году в топ-10 практически полностью состоял из американцев, то в 2016 году в нем осталось лишь три американские компании Wall-Mart (1 место, 482 млрд долл), Exxon Mobile (6) и Apple (9), остальные позиции были разделены между европейцами и японцами.   Всего в 2016 году 110 китайских компаний вошли в рейтинг крупнейших корпораций мира , из них 12 в этом списке присутствуют впервые.  «Пекинцы и южные китацы»  Интересно, что новички от Китая разделились на две большие группы - госкорпорации со штаб-кватирой в Пекине и южно-китайские частные корпорации провинции Гуандун и соседнего Гонконга.  «Пекинцы» China Electronics Technology Group (26,4 млрд долл), China Aerospace Science & Industry Corp (中国航天科工集团公司 27,8 млрд долл), China State Shipbuilding Corp (中国造船公司, 30,1 млрд),  CRRC Corp Ltd (中国中车, 37,8 млрд долл) - госкорпорации в сфере аэрокосмических технологий ВПК, кораблестроения и локомотивостроения.  В списке новичков также страховщик New China Life Insurance Co Ltd (新华保险, 25,1 млрд долл), корпорация известного сычуаньского миллиардера Ван Цзяньлиня Dalian Wanda Group (27,37 млрд долл) и основной конкурент «Алибаба» в Китае JD.com (28,8 млрд).   Другую массивную группу новичков составили южные китайцы из ведущей экспортной провинции Гуандун и Гонконга:  девелопер China Vanke Co Ltd (Шэньчжэнь, 29,329 млрд), девелопер Evergrande Real Estate Group Ltd (Гуанчжоу, 21,1 млрд долл), известный китайцам по своей футбольной команде пять раз подряд завоевашей титул чемпиона Китая,  пищевой гигант WH Group Ltd (21,2 млрд, Гонконг), крупнейший производитель бытовой техники, в частности кондиционеров  Midea Group Co (Фошань, 22,2 млрд), корпорация самого богатого человека Гонконга Ли Кашина CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd (Гонконг, 22,7 млрд долл).  Полный список китайских компаний  Fortune Global 2016, млн долл дохода 2 State Grid $329,601 3 China National Petroleum $299,271 4 Sinopec Group $294,344 15 Industrial & Commercial Bank of China $167,227 22 China Construction Bank $147,910 27 China State Construction Engineering $140,159 29 Agricultural Bank of China $133,419 35 Bank of China $122,337 41 Ping An Insurance $110,308 45 China Mobile Communications $106,761 46 SAIC Motor $106,684 54 China Life Insurance $101,274 57 China Railway Engineering $99,435 62 China Railway Construction $95,652 81 Dongfeng Motor Group $82,817 91 China Resources National $76,574 95 China Southern Power Grid $74,697 99 Pacific Construction Group $73,047 102 China South Industries Group $70,081 105 China Post Group $69,637 109 China National Offshore Oil $67,799 110 China Communications Construction $67,764 116 Noble Group $66,712 119 People’s Insurance Co. of China $64,606 121 COFCO $64,516 122 Tewoo Group $64,232 129 Huawei Investment & Holding $62,855 130 China FAW Group $62,852 132 China Telecommunications $61,796 134 China North Industries Group $61,621 139 Sinochem Group $60,656 143 Aviation Industry Corp. of China$60,252 153 Bank of Communications$57,068 156 CITIC Group$55,938 160 Beijing Automotive Group $54,933 163 Shandong Weiqiao Pioneering Group $53,026 189 China Merchants Ban k$48,459 190 Amer International Group $47,795 195 Industrial Bank $46,446 200 PowerChina $45,607 201 HeSteel Group $45,266 202 Lenovo Group $44,912 205 Sinopharm $44,325 207 China United Network Communications $44,085 217 China Huaneng Group $43,224 221 China Minsheng Banking $42,449 227 Shanghai Pudong Development Bank $42,030 229 CEFC China Energy $41,845 234 ChemChina $41,412 251 China Pacific Insurance (Group) $39,336 262 Aluminum Corp. of China $37,996 266 CRRC$37,837 267 Jizhong Energy Group $37,817 270 Shenhua Group $37,612 273 Jardine Matheson $37,007 275 Baosteel Group $36,608 281 China Shipbuilding Industry $36,012 290 China Metallurgical Group $35,314 293 Sinomach $35,134 303 Guangzhou Automobile Industry Group $34,440 309 China Energy Engineering Group $33,223 311 Greenland Holding Group $33,024 313 China Everbright Group $32,901 314 Jiangsu Shagang Group $32,751 318 Xinxing Cathay International Group$32,567 322 Datong Coal Mine Group$31,958 323 China Minmetals$31,883 325 Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum (Group) $31,755 327 China National Building Materials Group $31,706 328 Jiangxi Copper $31,555 329 China Electronics $31,537 331 China Huadian $31,437 337 Shanxi Coking Coal Group $31,039 342 State Power Investment $30,616 344 China Aerospace Science & Technology $30,554 345 China Guodian $30,515 347 Shaanxi Coal & Chemical Industry $30,331 349 China State Shipbuilding $30,191 353 HNA Group $29,562 356 China Vanke $29,329 359 Wuchan Zhongda Group $29,052 366 JD.com$28,847 370 Shanxi LuAn Mining Group $28,642 374 Yangquan Coal Industry Group $28,310 381 China Aerospace Science & Industry $27,867 383 China General Technology $27,667 384 Shanxi Jincheng Anthracite Coal Mining Group $27,572 385 Dalian Wanda Group $27,377 386 China Nonferrous Metal Mining (Group) $27,189 401 China Poly Group $26,675 406 China Datang $26,440 408 China Electronics Technology Group $26,410 410 Zhejiang Geely Holding Group $26,304 426 Shandong Energy Group $25,136 427 New China Life Insurance $25,129 456 AIA Group $23,274 465 China COSCO Shipping $22,965 473 CK Hutchison Holdings $22,715 481 Midea Group $22,174 484 China National Aviation Fuel Group $22,101 489 Shougang Group $21,514 495 WH Group $21,209 496 Evergrande Real Estate Group $21,184 Язык Русский

Under the Shadow of Supply-Side Reform

APRIL DAN FENG presents the pros and cons of China's Supply-Side Reform policy. On November 10, 2015, during the Chinese Communist Party Working Conference on Economic Policies, President Xi Jinping introduced a series of policies to stimulate Chinese economy known as the Supply-Side Reform. Of the numerous policies, Xi emphasized the importance of cutting the state-owned enterprises' (SOEs) sprawling over capacity and announced that the government would start ordering mergers of SOEs by pooling together their resources to obtain bigger market shares and more efficient operating structures. In short, the bigs are getting bigger, per government's request. Over the years, China's SOEs have become less profitable, especially when compared with private enterprises. According to a national survey conducted in March 2015 by the National Bureau of Statistics, total profits of SOEs decreased by 37 percent compared to the year before, whereas profits of their private counterparts increased by 9.1 percent. However, SOEs continue to occupy a major share of markets and resources and overproduce under such inefficient privileges. In the steel and coal industries especially, almost half of the world's yield is attributed to the overproduction of Chinese SOEs. Since the Deng Xiaoping administration, the Chinese Communist Party has been gradually reforming China's economic structure by actively supporting private-owned firms through various policy combinations like transferring ownership of state-owned assets and setting up a budget system for managing state capital. The efforts on behalf of strengthening the private sector have definitely bore fruit. According to a report by the World Bank, growth of the private sector has steadily increased since the 1980s. In 2003, the private sector had grown to employ 74.7 million people, surpassing, for the first time, the 74.6 million employed by SOEs. Under such a trend, China's economy has achieved unprecedented growth over the past thirty years. However, Xi's proposal of merging SOEs seems to flip the focus from empowering private enterprises to strengthening the state-owned sector. The president confidently argued that such efforts could further advance the efficiency of the market and provide benefits to consumers. But could it really? *** Although the proposed supply-side reform could conceivably lower costs through merging, it cannot drive down prices without creating a more competitive market for the SOEs. In other words, these firms would have the resources but not the incentives to provide lower pricing. In fact, mergers of SOEs inevitably reduce market competition by concentrating the market share of state-owned monopolies and raising the barrier to entry for private enterprises. On December 30, 2014, China's two largest state-owned rail companies, China CNR Corporation Limited (CNR) and China South Locomotive & Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CSR) announced that under government order from Beijing, they would merge to form China Railway Stock Corp. (CRRC). The newly merged company controls over 90 percent of China's industry with a market value of $26 billion and a combined annual revenue of $32.3 billion, making it virtually impossible for smaller private enterprises like the Shenzhen China Technology Industry Group Corporation Limited to survive in the industry. Since merging SOEs will almost inevitably reduce the number of competitors in specific industries and stymie competition between the private and the state-owned sectors. It is unlikely that the newly merged SOEs will lower prices. Thus, such a policy might end up hurting consumers--a problem that China, if it hopes to expand its domestic demand, should be wary of. As the Chinese SOEs gain more say in both the domestic and the global markets, they face less competition in their respective industries and gain more bargaining power in setting prices at their will. How can the Party address the long-lasting issue of SOEs slowing down market efficiency then? Professor Eva Dziadula from the University of Notre Dame provides an insight into the problem, "The reform should encourage competition and needs to be more market oriented. If you want to create incentives for growth, then benefits such as preferential tax treatments should also benefit the private enterprises." Essentially, as Dr. Dziadula points out, the reform indeed should be on the supply-side, but the Chinese government has targeted the wrong suppliers. To truly benefit the consumers, it is best to help private companies thrive instead of equilibrating the market with the giant SOEs. The key to solving the slowdown of market growth is to help private enterprises by ending the government-provided preferential treatments that SOEs receive. Since the 1960s, Chinese SOEs have enjoyed preferential treatment from the government in areas such as licensing, government contracting, and financing--ultimately securing an unfair competitive edge over private enterprises. Many leaders of SOEs have been found guilty of corruption and collusion with government officials. According to the official Xinhua News Agency, 115 business leaders of SOEs were arrested and charged with corruption in 2014 alone. Lack of market competition and corruption have worsened the SOEs' efficiency. Only by ending the preferential treatments to SOEs can the government really achieve the important goal of allocating capital and resources fairly across different market sectors on the supply side. The new market structure would push some SOEs to merge and will increase the likelihood that they lower prices proportionally to their actual costs. What are the motives behind the government's proposal then? One guess is that such moves form national champions that can better compete overseas. Since the policy was first raised in December last year, there had been rumors of mergers of some of the biggest SOEs in the railway, telecom, steel and airline industries. According to the Wall Street Journal, a merger of China Railway Group and China Railway Construction will create a combined revenue of 1.2 trillion yuan, giving China a much greater say in the global market. The combined company of China Unicom and China Telecom has an annual revenue of 609 billion. A merger of Wuhan Steel and Baosteel would create the world's No. 2 steel company by production. A merger of Air China and China Southern Airlines would create the world's largest air carrier by fleet size. However, as the Chinese SOEs gain more say in both the domestic and the global markets, they face less competition in their respective industries and gain more bargaining power in setting prices at their will. As the bigs go bigger, Beijing tightens its grip on key parts of world industry. In the next few years, however, under this shadow China casts on the global economy, the domestic consumers and private enterprises will still likely be struggling in the dark.

How Terrorism Is Affecting China's Africa Agenda

Until just a few weeks, security had not been expected to be a major topic at the December Forum on China-Africa Cooperation summit in Johannesburg. In the span of just a few short weeks, terrorism and security issues will likely move close to the top of the agenda when Chinese president Xi Jinping meets with 50 plus African counterparts. China's vulnerability to terrorism was brazenly exposed when the self-proclaimed Islamic State killed Chinese national Fan Jinghui. That killing sparked an immediate backlash on Chinese social media with calls for Beijing to strike back against the terrorist group. Predictably, it didn't take long for those online discussions to be quashed by the government. Then, just a few days later, three more Chinese were killed by terrorists. This time at the hands of Al Qaeda affiliates in the Malian capital of Bamako. The attackers stormed the Renaissance Blu Hotel where the three executives from the state-owned China Railway Construction Corporation were shot. These two events are just the latest attacks on Chinese nationals abroad, particularly in MENA and sub-Saharan Africa. Within the past couple of years, Chinese citizens have been taken captive by Boko Haram in Cameroon, kidnapped in Egypt and taken hostage in Sudan among other places. In Angola, the situation is so dire that a senior embassy official in Luanda made a rare public appeal to the government to do something or else future Chinese investment in the country could be at stake. With each of these attacks, the perception at home is that China may now be a great power but one that can't seem to protect its people abroad. This presents a real challenge for the government's legitimacy because, really, Chinese officials don't have a lot of options available to counter the rising threat of terrorism against their people and interests abroad. Unlike the United States, France and Britain who have all made unilateral military deployments into other countries without U.N. authorization, the Chinese are bound by their own non-interference doctrine to avoid such interventions. Secondly, even if China did want to retaliate or take some other form of military action to combat violence against its interests, it's not immediately clear that it has the capability to do so. Although rapidly modernizing, China's ability to project force, especially using special operations forces far away from home, is questionable at best. The Chinese clearly recognize the problem. The question is can they do anything about it? This week, Eric & Cobus discuss -- in the podcast above -- the new security realities confronting China's engagement in Africa and MENA and explore what options, if any, policymakers have to confront the mounting threat against their people and interests. Note: In the podcast, Eric incorrectly said that the Chinese ambassador to Luanda had issued the warning to the Angolan government about the high-frequency of kidnappings of Chinese nationals. It was actually the embassy's first secretary, Zhao Haihan, who made the remarks during an interview.

При захвате отеля в Мали погибли россияне

Новости Позже 21 ноября в МИДе сообщили, что в результате теракта погибли шесть россиян, еще шесть граждан России были освобождены. Россияне оказались сотрудниками авиакомпании «Волга — Днепр». «В числе погибших — шестеро граждан нашей страны, которые вместе с тринадцатью гражданами других государств были расстреляны боевиками в помещении ресторана буквально в первые моменты террористической атаки на гостиницу. Решительно осуждаем это бесчеловечное преступление, направленное на дестабилизацию обстановки в Мали, срыв процесса внутреннего урегулирования. Соболезнуем родным и близким погибших», — цитирует агентство «Интерфакс» Захарову. В посольстве России в Мали открыли «горячую линию» по телефону (+223) 764-09-056. В числе жертв теракта оказались и трое граждан Китая, сотрудники крупнейшей в стране государственной строительной корпорации China Railway Construction Corporation. Также в отеле погиб гражданин США — Госдепартамент страны не назвал имя погибшего.Около 10 боевиков 20 ноября захватили Radisson и взяли в заложники 170 человек. Через несколько часов Силы безопасности освободили заложников. В отеле обнаружили тела 27 погибших. По словам президента Мали Ибрагима Бубакара Кейта, жертвами боевиков стали 19 человек, семеро получили ранения, двух террористов удалось ликвидировать.Ответственность за теракт взяла на себя группировка «Аль-Мурабитун», которая ранее присягнула на верность «Исламскому государству». Ранее она уже брала ответственность за атаки на отели в Мали: так, в августе 2015 года в результате нападения погибли 13 человек. «Исламское государство» признано террористической организацией и запрещено в России. #Mali troopers assist a hostage from the Radisson Blu hotel to safety after gunmen attacked the hotel in #Bamako and took 170 hostages.

Китай – России: построим ВСМ от Пекина до Москвы

Фото: Reuters Власти КНР объявили о предложении по строительству высокоскоростной железнодорожной магистрали, которая соединила бы столицы России и Китая.  Информацию об этом в четверг, 22 января, распространило агентство Bloomberg. Источником данной новости в статье "China, Russia Plan $242 Billion Beijing-Moscow Rail Link" была названо заявление, которые муниципальные власти Пекина сделали на своей официальной странице в социальной сети Weibo (китайском аналоге микроблогов Twitter). Общая протяженность предлагаемого проекта высокоскоростной железнодорожной ветки Пекин-Москва составит 7 тыс. км. При этом время в пути составит всего 2 дня. Стоимость проекта, по оценкам муниципальных властей Пекина, может составить 1,5 трлн юаней ($242 млрд). В сообщении также отмечалось, что маршрут высокоскоростной магистрали (ВСМ) пройдет через территорию Казахстана.  Китай намерен вложить 400 млрд руб. в ВСМ до Казани Китай уже высказывал заинтересованность в подобном проекте, при этом заявляя о готовности вложить в него собственные средства. В частности, 9 сентября 2014 г. вице-президент РЖД Александр Мишарин сообщил, что китайские инвесторы готовы вложить 400 млрд руб. в строительство ВСМ Москва-Казань. В октябре 2014 г. в рамках подписания 38 соглашений в различных сферах также была достигнута договоренность о сотрудничестве в строительстве высокоскоростных железных дорог. Минтранс, РЖД, Госкомитет КНР по развитию и реформе и корпорация China Railway Construction Corporation подписали меморандум о взаимопонимании в области высокоскоростного железнодорожного сообщения. Тогда же одной из главных целей заключенного соглашения было названо претворение в жизнь проекта Евразийского высокоскоростного транспортного коридора Москва-Пекин, который в том числе будет включать в себя ВСМ Москва-Казань.
