China’s riches

October 10, 2007

With a $16 billion fortune, 26-year old Yang Huiyan is China’s richest person, Reuters reports.

Huiyan is the daughter of a former farmer whose firm, Country Garden’s Home Co., floated in Hong Kong’s stock market in April, making her an instant billionaire.

Asia’s richest woman is a graduate of Ohio State University and serves as the executive director of her father’s developing firm.

Also, according to Reuters, China has now more billionaires than any other country except for the United States.
