(14 April 2014, Pasay City, Philippines) SM Investments Corporation (SM) was cited as a winner of the "2013 Global Chinese Business 1000" by international affairs magazine Yazhou Zhoukan.
The Global Chinese Business 1000 Awards assess all listed Chinese corporations around the globe based on their market value and award pioneers with outstanding business operations.
Founded in 1987, Yazhou Zhoukan is the world's only Chinese language international affairs magazine. It pinpoints and analyses political, economic and cultural news from around the world. Readers of Yazhou Zhoukan are mainly from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and mainland China. The majority of readers belong to the high income and educational level brackets as well as senior management personnel and entrepreneurs.
“Our founder, Mr. Henry Sy, Sr. has always envisioned SM, with its Philippine roots, as a global market leader. It has been Mr. Sy’s dream to bring world class facilities, products and services to millions of Filipinos. That dream has now taken flight with SM expanding beyond the Philippines to China in just a few decades largely due to Mr. Sy’s core values of hard work, prudence which we all try to emulate,” SM Prime Holdings Inc. Vice President for the Premier Malls Division Steven Tan said.
