But first, it’s important to mention that…
But… Let’s get to the actual topic.
Here are the stories of various Chinese entrepreneurs who have been recognized worldwide for their achievements in the business world.
4 Chinese Entrepreneurs Who Are Successful With Their Businesses
1. Li Ka Shing
He is the third richest citizen in Asia and one of the most famous businessmen in the world.
In addition, according to Forbes magazine in 2009, Li is considered the 11th richest man in the world.
Li started selling jewelry in a small business in Hong Kong markets.
But it turned out so well that after six years on the road, the owner put him in charge of a small part of the business.
He learned very quickly and just two years later founded his own company specializing in the production of artificial flowers.
But that’s not all!
His big break came in 1979 when the so-called Chinese Revolution took place.
Many businessmen subsequently sold their businesses to the highest bidder, and Li befriended political leader Deng Xiaoping, who allowed him to act as an intermediary between China and Hong Kong.
As a result, their companies enjoyed absolute monopoly for ten years.
Great! Do not you think?
At the same time, the original Cheung Kong company specialized in real estate development and artificial flower business and is now valued at $100 billion.
In addition, the company, currently run by the Chinese tycoon, is present in 54 countries and employs more than 220,000 people.
In addition, thanks to his involvement, his personal fortune is $16.2 billion and he owns about 14% of the market value of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
A living example of success!
Known as the “King of Gambling”, Stanley Ho reflects how the government has provided great opportunities to the gambling industry for more than 35 years.
Today, according to Forbes, he is the richest person in Macau and one of the richest in Asia with an estimated net worth of $7 billion.
In addition, Stanley Ho owns many properties in Hong Kong and Macau.
And he’s been involved in many types of businesses, including entertainment, tourism, shipping, real estate, banking, and aviation.
But that’s not all!
In fact, he is also a famous industrialist in Asia and has held various senior positions in many companies in Hong Kong and Macau.
Their opinions and their level of development as well as their commercial statements have a significant influence on the market.
3. Richard Li Zar Kai
Chairman and CEO of PCCW Limited and Pacific Century Group in Hong Kong.
Also Chairman of Singapore-based Pacific Century Regional Limited and Non-Executive Director of Bank of East Asia.
But it doesn’t end here!
Thanks to his visionary spirit, Li is a member of various non-governmental organizations, of which we can mention:
