Many say matchmaking activity for the rich is an insult to women

Some 300 women from different parts of Sichuan province will try to win the hands of millionaires when they take part in a matchmaking competition in Chengdu, capital of the southwestern Chinese province, on Sunday.

The organizer of the competition, the China Single Entrepreneur Club, said Chengdu would be one of 10 cities to play host to the event.

According to reports, those who join the club are single or divorced businessmen who have more than 100 million yuan ($15.7 million) in personal assets or are presidents or general managers of large companies. To maintain their memberships, they must pay 200,000 yuan in annual fees.

The competition began in Guangzhou on May 20, attracting 320 women from a pool of 2,800 applicants in the capital of South China's Guangdong province.

In the wake of the Guangzhou leg of the competition, the event on Sunday will draw about 300 women from Chengdu, Deyang and Mianyang, large cities in Sichuan. They will vie for the right to be among the 28 female finalists in the country to meet and date 20 millionaires.

Li Zhuo, an official from the club, said the millionaires who are looking for spouses are in their 30s or 40s. Most of them are divorced.
