Wu Yajun Career

Wu was born into a typical family in 1964 in Chongqing. She worked at the Qianwei Meter Factory from 1984 to 1988. She was a journalist and editor at the China Shirong News Agency from 1988 to 1993. At the time the paper was constrained by the Development Department of Chongqing Metropolitan Government, which demonstrated fundamental for her in developing her organisation in the public authority and business world to then send off her profession in the land business.

Wu and her former husband, businessman Cai Kui, established Chongqing Zhongjianke Real Estate Co. Ltd. in 1995 with a 10 million yuan initial investment. Longfor Properties was later adopted as the company’s new name. The endeavour developed quickly from that point, extending from her home in Chongqing to incorporate significant urban communities like Chengdu, Beijing, Shanghai, Changzhou and Dalian. In 2007, she joined the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business as an alumni.
