    China's billionaire list tops 100: reports


    HONG KONG (MarketWatch) - The number of mainland Chinese making it into the ranks of U.S. dollar billionaires climbed seven-fold in the past 12 months, according to a report in the China Daily newspaper, which cited data from Shanghai-based data group The Hurun Rich List. There are currently 106 mainland billionaires, up from 15 last year and zero in 2006, the report said, citing data released by the Hurun Rich List earlier this week. Of the 10 richest, nine individuals own listed companies, the report said. Six of the top 10 reportedly have business in construction and real estate. The report added that China's 800 richest individuals have net wealth of $459.3 billion, equivalent to 16% of China's gross domestic product last year.
