Forbes put together a list of who they consider the 50 top businesswomen at work today in Asia. The talented women were picked according to “their hands-on management of profit-seeking companies.”
The list includes such stellar figures as Australia’s richest individual and mining mogul Gina Rinehart and the head of Vietnam’s largest milk company.
"This inaugural list celebrates the dynamic ways in which Asia's businesswomen are driving some of the region's most exciting growth. Through their respective realms of power and influence, these honorees span diverse industries, nations and generations, yet each has changed the face of Asian business, while creating opportunities for future leaders,"
said Moira Forbes, president and publisher of ForbesWoman in a statement.
