Li Jinhua, who is known as the "iron-handed auditor-general" of the National Audit Offi, won the top prize in the awards.

A report led by Li brought to light 1.4 billion yuan of the government' 2003 budget that was misused or wrongly appropriated by 41 of 55 government offices, revelations that have sparked a nationwide storm of close audits for further misappropriations.

The nine other figures recognized by CCTV were: Ma Yun, chairman of the Alibaba auction Web site; Yang Yuanqing, CEO of Lenovo Group; Mai Boliang, president of China International Marine Containers (Group) Co.; Hu Maoyuan, president of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp.; Li Dongsheng, president of TCL Group, Hou Weigui, chairman of ZTE Corp; Wang Xianzhang, general manager of China Life Insurance (Group) Co.; Guo Guangchang, chairman of Fosun High Technology Group; and Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People's Bank of China.
