Two Vietnamese businessmen back on Forbes billionaires list

Fish sauce magnate Nguyen Dang Quang and steel tycoon Tran Dinh Long have reappeared on Forbes’ list of billionaires.

Quang, chairman and founder of private food producer Masan Group, is 2,109th on the real time billionaires ranking updated by the U.S. magazine Friday with a net worth of $1 billion.

This data is updated based on changes in the price of MSN shares on the stock exchange, which account a majority of Quang's assets.

Quang made it to the Forbes list for the first time last year with a net worth of $1.3 billion. He founded Masan, a major producer of fish sauce and packaged foods, in 2004.
