China Railway Construction Corporation and China Railway Group are the world's two largest contractors, according to International Construction's provisional 2010 ranking of the world's 200 largest construction companies. They displaced French companies Vinci and Bouygues, which have held the top two places for a decade.

Elsewhere in the top ten, China State Construction & Engineering (CSCEC) has moved up two places from last year to fourth position, while China Communications Construction Group is also up two places to eighth.

The highest placed US company in the top ten is Bechtel, down two places from last year at no. 7, while fellow American company Fluor was unmoved from last year in tenth position. Germany's Hochtief and Spain's ACS complete the top ten in eight and ninth positions respectively.

The full league table of the world's 200 largest contractors will be published in the July-August edition of International Construction. As well as the league table, the feature will include analysis of global and regional industry trends.
