Top 10 Companies in the World 2011

Four months back Forbes listed the world's leading companies of 2000. Forbes always uses a tremendous amount of research and surveys before listing the top shots. I believe in Forbes, and hence thought of placing the top companies in the world in terms of their global strength. In short, we are going to see the world's biggest public companies.
