Wang Sicong is China’ richest, probably the world’s richest, 26 year old. He has been given 2% of his Daddy’s company – Wanda Corp owns real estate, movie theaters, yachts and hotels to the tune of $100 billion.
Sicong usually avoids the media but he has given an interview to Chinese Marie Claire, which concluded unsurprisingly that he had a clear mind and opinions with quick conclusions — so much for the impartiality of Chinese Marie Claire (July 2014). Continue reading
‘People should take advantage of their strengths. My strength is I am rich.’ Wang Sicong says. Seldom has an interview become so simple and direct.
‘People who are good looking should be actor; people who are talented with the pen should write books; people who are rich shall make use of money. Is it meaningful to compete with others by your disadvantages?’ Everything is related to ‘money’. Indeed, Wang Sicong and his father Wang Jianlin are rich. It shall be hypocritical if they talk about meanings instead of money. Continue reading
Wang Sicong currently has more than seven million followers on his Weibo account. But, he posts less frequently than before. In order to celebrate his followers were over a million, Sicong launched a raffle which almost dragged down the Weibo raffle platform.
After the famous South Beauty Word War, he was asked whether his father asked him to speak cautiously on Weibo afterwards. Sicong answers, ‘my father usually does not care about what I say on Weibo, but later on he added “Do not scold my friends”. But since he has so many friends, he added another requirement that ‘do not mention their names if you really want to scold them.’ This is because his father is unwilling to be offensive in regards to his son’s public expressions .

Having studied in the United States for many years, Kelly Zong has been trained with a frank, independent and self-confident personality. She attaches great importance to rules, regimes, and talents. Kelly says, ‘An enterprise belongs to all the staff instead of the boss only. People who is full of passion shall be given space to demonstrate their talents.’
Kelly Zong (Zong Fuli), the daughter of Hangzhou Wahaha Chairman Zong Qinghou, joined the company in 2005. Unlike other entrepreneurs who only aim to develop their own business, Kelly is ambitious to promote the Chinese food industry.
Kelly Zong attaches great importance to education. She donated Fuli Food Science and Engineering College of Xi’an Jiaotong University on May 14th, 2014, aiming at cultivating elites for China and worldwide food industry. What Kelly Zong wants to rewrite is the pattern of the global food industry. She wishes to see that within 10 years, there will be a detailed and honest ingredient list on China’s food packaging, and the global food industry norms also will have to refer to Chinese standards.
Her expectation to the Food Science and Engineering College are to control the discourse power in the food industry in the future. ‘I hope we can constantly shrink the gap between China’s food and beverage industry and the abroad by cultivating high-end talents for the food industry, and supporting the research development of food discipline and security’, says Kelly, ‘I want to present a modern China better. I want to present what we post-80s should stand for’. This is Kelly’s responsibility.
