Who is the richest man in the world today?
Zhong Shanshan is one of the few billionaires able to succeed in China beyond the technology sector. Unlike Jack Ma, or the current second richest man in the country, Ma Huateng (nicknamed Pony Ma), founder of Tencent, owner of WeChat, the app that in China is practically everything, Zhong does not showcase his success. He has never acquired exorbitant properties and continues to live in an apartment in his hometown. Precisely this discretion, much appreciated by Xi Jinping, is probably the secret of a triumph that goes back a long way.
In 1993, Zhong founded Yang Sheng Tang (today’s YST Group), a pharmaceutical company that produced so-called ‘turtle pills’, supplements based on turtle shells to combat erectile dysfunction. In the mid-1990s the product began to work, so much so that the entrepreneur managed to earn his first million. The breakthrough came in 1996, when Zhong discovered a reservoir near his hometown in Zhejiang province. Combining his previous experiences in the beverage and wellness sectors, he founded Nongfu Spring.
