Asia's 25 Richest People

86,018 views 25 items 1rerank
Making their fortunes by dominating one industry or another, these are Asia's 25 richest people as calculated by Forbes magazine in March 2013. Each are worth several billion dollars, all are based in one country in Asia and everyone comes in among the richest people in the world on the Forbes 400 list.

Lakshmi Mittal comes in atop the list of Asia's richest people with an estimated net worth of a whopping $31.1 billion dollars. Based in India, Mittal made his fortune in steel and ranks as the sixth-richest person in the world.

Just one other Asia-based billionaire, Mukesh Ambani of India, ranks among the top 10 richest in the world. Like many in the region, Ambani, who is worth $27 billion, is a leader in petrochemicals, oil and gas.

Like others who are among the richest people in the world, coming in as #25 on this list does not mean you are poor, simply not stacked with the tens of billions as others on the continent. Pretty sure many of us would be happy to come in last here, as 25th place is still a cool $10 billion bucks.
