Nasdaq opens an office in Beijing that gives it legal status to solicit Chinese companies for listings directly in China. Previously, it had a presence in China that did not allow direct contact with companies. So far this year, it has listed 19 mainland Chinese companies, up from 9 last year, for a total of 52 listings with a market capitalization of $57 billion.
