From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a Chinese name; the family name is Shi.

Wen-long Shi[1] (traditional Chinese: 許文龍pinyin: Xǔ Wénlóng) is a Taiwanese businessman and the founder of Chi Mei Corporation, the largest maker of ABS resin in the world. Shi has been ranked among Forbes' World's Richest People.[2] He was a chairman of Chi Mei until 2004, when he resigned as chairman, though he still holds significant stakes in the company and sits on its board.

Shi was a senior advisor to Chen Shui-bian during his presidency and is known to support pro-Taiwan independence causes, a stance which has made him unpopular with Mainland China.[3] He has claimed that Taiwanese women who acted as comfort women during Japanese rule were not forced to do so, which created much controversy[4].

Shi is an amateur performing concert violinist.[5] He founded the Chi Mei Museum, in which he collects several valuable string instruments made by Antonio Stradivari or Guarneri del Gesù.
