Forbes Magazine has released a list of the 2,000 largest global public companies in the world in 2020.
Six of them included in the list are Indonesian companies.
From Indonesia, the six companies on the prestigious list, four of which are state-owned enterprises, the rest are telecommunications companies, and cigarette companies.
Forbes said the list this time was released amid the impact of the COVID-19 corona virus pandemic.
So it is not surprising that many companies have experienced a deep decline in performance.
To measure company performance, Forbes uses a number of indicators.
Namely sales, profit, assets, and market value. All company performance indicators used are based on first quarter 2020 data.
The Indonesian companies that entered ‘Global 2000: The World`s Largest Public Companies’ for this year have not changed compared to last 2019.
Bank Rakyat Indonesia Company or Bank BRI is still at the top, while Bank Mandiri, which was in second place in 2019, was displaced by Bank BCA.
In the next position, the order of the companies is still the same as in 2019 and is dominated by BUMN.
Namely Telkom Indonesia, followed by Bank BNI, and Gudang Garam in sixth position.
