The report, Internet Trends 2017, released by dotcom star analyst Mary Meeker, said China's technology companies are leading public market wealth creation. Chinese internet giant Tencent has been ranked inside the world's top 10 most valuable brands in the 2017 BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands ranking.
