Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani is no longer Asia’s richest man. He also dropped the list of the 10 richest people in the world. Today, Zong Shanshan, owner of a Chinese company that makes bottled water and vaccines, wrested the position of Asia’s richest man from Mukesh Ambani. According to the Forbes real-time billionaire ranking, Shanshan is now seventh in the list of the 10 richest people in the world, while Ambani has slipped to 12th place. This morning, they were in 10th place. Alan Musk, on the other hand, is second on the list and is on the verge of snatching the crown from Jeff Bezos, CEO of the world’s richest Amazon.

Who is Zhong Shanshan?
On the one hand, the global economic situation is deteriorating due to the Corona virus outbreak and the industrialists are suffering huge losses, while on the other hand, Zhong Shanshan’s wealth has grown very rapidly over the past year. As a result, he became the richest businessman in Asia. Zong, 67, is also known as the lone wolf in China.
In April, he developed the vaccine for the Beijing Ventai Biological Pharmacy Enterprise Company, and a few months later, the Nongfu Spring Company bottled water-making canary became the most popular in Hong Kong.
