この号は保存版として購入するところが多いと見越してか、日本政府が19ページに渡って日本を売り出す広告を出していることも毎年恒例のことです。巻頭のキャッチは以下の通りで、水素の燃料自動車などの新技術を中心に紹介しています。

As companies restructure to focus on areas of growth, government is proposing bold strategies to foster everything from clean energy use to greater social inclusiveness. Japan is changing – for the better.

The Global 500 is Fortune’s ranking of the world’s largest companies, ranked by revenue for their most recent fiscal year. It’s the ultimate scorecard for big business around the world.

In sum, the total revenue of the companies on this list was $28 trillion dollars. That’s equal to about 37% of global GDP. And the Companies in the Global 500 earned a total of $1.5 trillion in profit.

The result is a list of companies that are shaping the way people all over the world work, live, play, shop.

The number one company on the Global 500 this year for fourth in a row is Walmart. It’s the only company on the Global 500 with more than $400 billion in revenue and it’s pushing $500 billion. That’s followed by three Chinese companies, State Grid, Sinope Group and China Natural Petroleum.

The United States had 132 companies on this year’s list. That’s down two. It’s kind of held steady around that number for a while. China, on the other hand, gained six companies last year and came in at 109.

One trend that we see in the Global 500 this year is that we saw in the Fortune 500 is continued weakness in the energy sector. Companies like Royal Dutch Shell, and Exxon Mobile, they’r still in the top, but they’re sliding a few spots this year.

There are 33 new companies to the list this year. Most of those are technology companies. You have Facebook making Global 500 for the first time. Tencent out of China, Alibaba out of China. Hewlett-Packard Enterprises, Dell made a comeback this year. And in terms of profit and revenue growth, technology sector leads both of those numbers.

I think one thing you can take away from the Global 500 this year is there’s a lot talk and debate about globalization. But the really big companies, the multinational companies, continue to grow and thrive in the global economy.
