Kotak-mahindra-Bank.gifYesterday Forbes Asia released a list of Top 50 biggest listed Companies in Asia-Pacific region. As expected, Asian economic powerhouses China and India dominated the list with having 32 companies in top 50. You would be surprised to know in 2005, when the list was first compiled, only five Chinese and three Indian companies came in the list. India and China have both 16 companies each on the list, followed by Hong Kong and Taiwan (4 each), South Korea (3), Australia and Japan (2 each) and Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand (1 each).

These 50 companies were picked by Forbes magazine from 936 shortlisted listed firms that had revenues or market capitalisation of at least US$3 billion (S$4 billion) as at Sept 1 2010, and a five-year record for revenue, operating earnings and return on capital.
