The article provides information on the top 40 richest people in China. China's richest person, Yung Huiyan, is worth $16.2 billion, seven times the $2.3 billion net worth of 2006 number one Wong Kwong Yu. Wong added $1.3 billion to his fortune in the past year. Half of the tycoons are new to the top 40, including three energy billionaires and four who jumped into the top 10. Those four include Beijing real estate developers Zhang Xin and Lu Zhiqiang and solar-power magnate Xiaofeng Peng, who took his LDK Solar public earlier in 2007.
