ChemChina clinches landmark $43 billion takeover of Syngenta
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 trend toward market consolidation has triggered fears among farmers that the pipeline for new herbicides and pesticides might slow.

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.


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.

U.S. electronic payments company MoneyGram International Inc said on Monday that peer Euronet Worldwide Inc's offer could result in a superior proposal compared to the one from China's Ant Financial Services Group.
