China's 'unicorns' nearly double to 131: official

China's unicorns are spread over 16 cities, but mostly in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Hangzhou. Half of China's unicorns are in Beijing's Zhongguancun, home to China's three super-unicorns worth over $10 billion: Xiaomi, Didi Chuxing, and Meituan. In fact, Zhongguancun is second only to Silicon Valley as the most concentrated area for tech unicorns in the world, the report says.

Dalian Wanda is King Kong in Hollywood Mr Wang has so far adopted the same Kong-like bluntness in entertainment as he has in Chinese property, building a swath of Wanda Plaza shopping and leisure centres across the country.
