Taiwan was home to 312,000 millionaire households in 2012. The island, whose economy relies heavily on the export of electronics, machinery and petrochemicals, has largely recovered from the recession even though its GDP rose by just 1.3 percent in 2012. The richest Taiwanese citizen is Tsai Wan-Tsai, who owns publicly listed Fubon Financial Holding.
