Wang Jianlin

Wang Jianlin, founder of China’s biggest commercial property firm Dalian Wanda, ranks 18th richest in the world and first in China. Dalian Wanda has since diversified into hospitals, Indian real estate and theme parks. The $3.2 million Wanda Citypark, which opened in Nanchang, paves the way for 15 more planned theme parks and entertainment projects in China. Wang is vying to unseat Disney in China to dominate the country’s $610 billion tourism industry, which is expected to double by 2020.
