Chinese brands go global

Chinese brands are spreading all over the world as the government spares no effort to implement its “opening-up and going-out” policy.

The first Chinese Brands Day on May 10 was part of that undertaking.

As a prelude to what is actually a three-day celebration, the first exposition on China Indigenous Brands is being held in Shanghai, with the theme of “China Brand World Sharing.” The expo has attracted over 800 participants from around the world as well as 500 well-known brands.

A list of the 100 most valuable Chinese brands was also jointly unveiled by public and private Chinese organizations ahead of the Chinese Brands Day. The list shows that the top 100 have a combined value of about five trillion yuan.

Guess who are the big winners among the 1,346 companies in the ranking? Internet giant Tencent is the most valuable brand, with an estimated worth of 308.4 billion yuan, closely followed by rival Alibaba, two billion yuan less.

Chinese brands in financial sectors contribute the most in terms of value, at 1,721 billion yuan. That means they account for about 30 percent of the total value of top 100 brands.

Analysts say such data signal Chinese brands already occupy the market step by step, domestically and abroad. They add that quality paired with global communication is a key to the success of Chinese brands in foreign markets.
