Woman on Top! China Rich List


Who says its a Man’s World?

A female scrap paper merchant worth $3.4 billion has been named as China’s wealthiest person, the first time a woman has topped the annual rich list.

Zhang Yin, 49, leapt to the number one spot from 36 last year after her company, Nine Dragons Paper, was listed in Hong Kong in March, according to the Hurun rich list compiled by the Shanghai-based accountant Rupert Hoogewerf.

 

 

Zhang made her money from recycling scrap paper brought in from the USChina for the retail sector.

Described as a self-made woman, she is now richer than American TV hostess Oprah Winfrey and Britain’s JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series.

She overtook Huang Guangyu, the founder of electronics retailer, Gome, whose fortune is estimated at $2.5 billion.
