Yang Huiyan (杨惠妍)

Yang Huiyan is the majority shareholder of Country Garden Holdings and one of the wealthiest people in Mainland China, with an estimated net worth of $7.4 billion USD as of March 2009.


  • When she was studying in middle school, as she used to attend board meetings.But she did not discontinue her education on her own, she pursued studying. At the school, she never revealed her family background. She was also unrelentingly diligent in her studies, even winning the honor of the school president presenting her diploma to her in person.

    While attending the university education, she inherited the Country Garden from her father and at that time, she had to stop her education.


  • She is not an inspiring woman for the Chinese female community; she is only a symbol of lucky person for them, as Chinese are very hard working people, and they believe more on struggle and effort, than in good luck. She did not get the image of heroine among them, because she got her wealth due to her father.
