China has once again dominated a list of global self-made woman billionaires.

Half of the top 10 richest self-made women in the world are from the Asian superpower.

Zhou Qunfei, who founded a firm that makes glass used to cover laptops and smartphones, was the world’s richest self-made woman, with $9.8bn (£7.1bn).

Her company Lens Technology has contracts with some of the biggest technology firms, and counts Apple and Samsung as its main customers.

Qunfei recently ranked in Forbes list of the world’s 16th richest woman overall, with her richer counterparts having inherited or married wealth.

Chief executive of Vietnamese airline VietJet, Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, is the highest new entrant on the list.
