Mon Apr 22, 2002 3:46 am

The biggest companies from the Netherlands if you look at the revenues are:

1. Shell/Royal Dutch 150 billion USD
2. ING group 70 billion USD
3. Ahold 50 billion USD
4. Fortis 40 billion USD
5. ABN Amro 40 billion USD

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines isn't that big if you look at revenues, 'only' 6,5 billion USD

What are the biggest companies(and biggest airline) in your country?

Lot,
This is the most up to date list I found on the Fortune web page. Go to the Fortune.com main web page I supplied in the first post of mine, and then click on Fortune 500 on the left column and that is the same list I took the 20 companies out of.

PS-I don't know why Microsoft is not on this list.

What reason should Microshit be in the top 10 list? They are the world's largest software company, which is independent from being one of the world's largest companies. They are 72th on the list and worth only $20 billion, which is 3.5 times less than the 10th largest company on the list.
