Xu Jingren (Chinese: 徐镜人; born 1944) is the chairman and president of Yangtze River Pharmaceutical Group, National People's Congress delegate and honorary vice-minister in China's Ministry of Health. Xu has been an outspoken research leader in China, where he has frequently called for labor reform and business regulation. As of 2018, his estimated net worth is USD$4.6 billion, one of four family members to be listed among the world's wealthiest.
The family were noted victims of the 2015 Chinese stock market crash, during which they lost approximately 40% of their previously estimated USD$8 billion combined net worth. Despite this, Xu Jingren and his relatives continue to be mentioned as one of China's top "vampire billionaire" families with majority investments abroad.
