BEIJING - China's National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ), also known as the "new third board", saw the debut of six new small and medium-sized enterprises last week.

Including the newcomers, the total number of companies on the board now stands at 10,802, according to the exchange.

Turnover hit 1.37 billion yuan ($197 million) last week, down 13.36 percent from the previous week.

The NEEQ was launched in early 2013 to supplement the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges, and is seen as a more beneficial financing channel for small businesses, with low costs and simple listing procedures.

China has worked to build a multi-level capital market that satisfies growing funding demand from all kinds of companies, no matter how big or small, with measures taken to reform the stock market and encourage direct financing.
