BEIJING — China’s National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ), also known as the “new third board,” has seen a turnover of over 113.8 billion yuan (about $17.3 billion) so far this year.

From Nov 23 to 27, its turnover increased by nearly 10 percent from last week, reaching 2.25 billion yuan.
