ChemChina has won more than enough support from Syngenta shareholders to clinch its $43 billion takeover of the Swiss pesticides and seeds group, the two companies said on Friday.

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.

BOC Hong Kong Holdings Ltd, a unit of Bank of China Ltd, said on Tuesday it had agreed to acquire Indonesia and Cambodia businesses from its parent for about $377 million, as parts of its push into Southeast Asia.
