The other deals in the sector are a $130 billion proposed merger of Dow Chemical and DuPont, and Bayer's plan to merge with Monsanto.


Meanwhile China has conditionally approved the pr...

China Unicom, with the world’s sixth-largest network of mobile phone users, is poised to announce an investment by a private-sector investor, becoming a test case in the country’s reform of state-owned enterprises.

 

In a regulatory filing late on Wednesday, Unicom said its parent, China United Network Communications, aims to push forward with implementing the central government’s so-called mixed-ownership reform plan involving investors from the mainland’s private sector.

Tencent of China Takes 5 Percent Stake in Tesla

Chinese tech giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. has bought a 5% stake in U.S. electric vehicle maker and renewable energy firm Tesla for US$1.78 billion. This is a deal that gives investors much to anticipate as the two could potentially partner on many areas.

China's 'unicorns' nearly double to 131: official
China had $131 billion worth of private start-ups by the end of 2016, nearly doubling the figure of the year before, said an official with Ministry of Science and Technology.
