Chinese entrepreneur Zong Qinghou, CEO of eastern Hangzhou's Wahaha Group, is the wealthiest person in the Chinese mainland, according to a rich list released Wednesday by Forbes Magazine.
The tycoon, with his $7 billion beverage empire, ranks 103rd in the 2010 world's richest list, while Mexico's Carlos Slim, the son of an immigrant shopkeeper and major stakeholder of the New York Times, claims the top throne with his $53.5 billion fortune.
According to Forbes' counting, the richest person in Hong Kong is Li Ka-sing with a fortune of $21 billion. The richest person in Taiwan is Terry Tai-Ming Gou, founder of one of the world's largest electronics manufacturing service company Hon Hai, with a fortune of $5.5 billion.
Energy sector, of 'strategic importance' in China is still dominated by state owned enterprises like Sinopec or PetroChina.why there are so few Chinese from the energy sector making the list??
They have just one telecommunications provider who's operations are split between China by 3 regions.So the energy sector is still a state owned enterprise this is something which is common thru out the world even when private corporations run companies in the energy sector they are usually partners with the government like US govt and EXXON working together in Iraq.
No. There're a few in telecom... most prominent are China Telecom, Unicom, Netcom and Tietong........They have just one telecommunications provider who's operations are split between China by 3 regions.
