The Great Brands of China

By Published on .

As we like to say around the office, China is a big country with a lot of people. Sure, many of them are poor and oppressed and even the few who CAN afford to go near a computer to do a Google search don't get the same results we would (because Google's definition of "evil" turns out to be heavily influenced by Chinese money).

But we're not here to talk about that. We're here to provide you with business insights. Anyhoo, BusinessWeek has a list of China's Top 20 Brands and an article to go along with it.

If your favorite Chinese brand isn't on the list, there might be a good reason for that: "In this survey, Interbrand looked only at listed companies with solid financial data, and assessed such characteristics as brand loyalty, geographical reach, and forward-looking industry trends. Hence some powerful state-owned companies weren't eligible. In addition, Chinese brands acquired by foreign companies were excluded."
