China is ascending the ranks of global economic power. This can only mean good news for the future senior executive jobs in China. Moving from its historical industrial and consumer goods strength to services -- and as companies like IBM relocate some of their research and development efforts to the country -- China is moving up the value chain. This kind of movement creates a wealth of executive opportunity, and with 400 million people living in the corridor west of the Pearl River Delta, China's demography will inevitably dominate the 21st century global economy.
Some of the larger companies in China include State Grid, Sinopec Group, Bank of China, China National Pertroleum and China Mobile Communications. The Shanghai Composite Index is currently led by Air China, Aluminum Corporation of China, Bank of China, Bank of Communications and Baoshan Iron & Steel.
