China's richest woman is worth $6 billionA 48-year-old property developer in China with a
fortune of 38 billion yuan ($6.12 billion) has topped this year's Hurun rich
list for women.
Wu Yajun was followed by two other real estate developers -
Chan Laiwa, 71, and Yang Huiyan, 31, according to the list published by the
Hurun Research Institute Friday.
The combined wealth of all 50 women on the list amounted to
440.6 billion yuan, down by 7.7 percent, compared to the previous year.
The fortunes declined due to the weak global economic
climate and the nation's sluggish property market, the China Daily Saturday
quoted the publisher as saying.
Wu's personal wealth decreased by 10 percent from last
year's 42 billion yuan.
According to a sub-list of the Hurun Report called the
Global Self-made Rich Women List, 30 of the women made their own fortunes.
"Of the top 22 self-made rich women in the world, 11
are from China," said Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman and chief researcher of
the Hurun Report.
