The most recent Forbes list, which ranks 2,000 large global enterprises, includes 136 Chinese companies, making China Asia's second-largest contributor to the list, behind Japan.
The list was compiled on the basis of companies' sales, profits, assets and market value. U.S. company ExxonMobil was ranked first on the list.
The U.S. also has the most companies on the list, with 543, followed by Japan and China with 258 and 136 respectively.
The magazine said that the number of Asia-Pacific region companies making the list increased by 32 to 733 this year, largely due to the positive progress made by Chinese and Korean enterprises.
