27 firms debut on China's New Third Board
BEIJING, June 17-- A total of 27 small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) went on China's New Third Board over the past week.
The newcomers brought the number of companies listed on the National Equities Exchange and Quotation (NEEQ) to 11,302.
Turnover on the board totaled 4.6 billion yuan (about 675 million U.S. dollars) from Monday to Friday, down 5.15 percent from the previous week.
The NEEQ, also known as the "New Third Board," debuted in 2006 as an experimental platform for small, non-listed high-tech enterprises in Zhongguancun Science Park, Beijing. The present system was officially established on Jan. 16, 2013.[ Editor: Zhang Zhou ]
