China's Leading Entrepreneurs and Enterprises Li Ka-Shing and Cheung Kong Holdings: A biography of one of China's greatest entrepreneurs - Yan Qicheng (Paperback) 06-05-2021
China's economic rise and influence has been one of the most significant developments in the global economy of recent times. A driving force behind this expansion has been the private entrepreneurs and companies of China, some of which have literally redefined the economic and business landscape, both inside and outside of China. Nicknamed 'Superman', Li Ka-Shing is one of the most influential entrepreneurs in Asia. Born in 1928 in Chiu Chow, in Southeastern China, Li left for Hong Kong with his family to avoid the perils of war. Forced to leave school before the age of 15, he worked in a plastics factory before starting his own company and is today the 11st richest person in the world. Today, his Cheung Kong is influential in many sectors (including transportation, real estate, financial services, retail and energy). This is the story of an outstanding entrepreneur whose rise is legendary.
