Rachman Halim (30 July 1947–27 July 2008) was a Chinese Indonesian businessman.

Halim was born Tjoa To Hing ([3]; Hokkien: Chhoà Tō-hêng) in Kediri, East Java to a prominent Chinese Indonesian (Hokchia totok) family.[3] He was the first son of Surya Wonowidjojo, founder of Gudang Garam, a major Indonesian kretek (clove cigarette) manufacturer.[3]

Halim succeeded his father to become the CEO of Gudang Garam in 1984, and expanded the company into other fields.

Forbes, an American business publication, ranked him and his family as the richest in Indonesia for a number of years[4] and listed them in 2005 as having a net worth of US$2.8 billion.[5]

Halim lived in Kediri and died at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore in 2008 after a week of treatment for a coronary illness.[4]
