In the world!

I remember when I was a kid the Golden Gate was #3, and now there are four longer than the Golden Gate within 200 miles of Shanghai. However as far as the Akashi Kaikyo getting passed, it will still be a long time. There aren't that many spans left in the world that would warrant a bridge with such a span. Either its not worth the trouble, ie Gibraltar, Messina, Sunda etc. Or you could just do multiple spans like Qiongzhou, Shanghai-Chongming

Out of the 50 longest suspension bridges, the following in China were built before 2000;

8) Jiangyin Bridge (1999)
33) Xiling Bridge (1996)
35) Humen Pearl River Bridge (1997)

So yes, it's basically a post-2000 China bridge party.
