Both the mainland markets and Hong Kong could be options for the potential listings. But Li ruled out splitting off China Mobile's Hong Kong subsidiary as doing so would contradict the company's strategy of integrating its mobile businesses
A state-owned enterprise directly controlled by the government of the People's Republic of China and also a public company which is listed on the NYSE and the Hong Kong stock exchanges,China Mobile has dominated Chinese mobile services since its inception. As of 2010, China Mobile controled the vast majority of its domestic mobile services market with a 70% market share. China Unicom and China Telecom have 20% and 10% shares, respectively.
Incorporated in 1997 as China Telecom (Hong Kong) Limited,China Mobile was born from the 1999 break-up of China Telecommunications Corporation.

Established in 2000, CMCC is China Mobile Ltd's current parent company as of 2011.
China Mobile operates a GSM network which encompasses all 31 provinces, autonomous regions, and directly administered municipalities in Mainland China and includes Hong Kong, too.
