Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow

Mr Wang Chuanfu has just been named as the richest man in China.

His net worth is estimated at $5.1 billion. His company BYD began in 1995 supplying lithium-ion batteries for mobiles, before moving into the automobile sector. His company is now looking at developing electric cars.

In second place on the list is Madam Zhang Yin, now worth more than $4.9 billion, the richest woman in the world. Her business is paper recycling.

Interesting that both billionaires have taken the ‘green route’.

The future’s bright, the future’s green…?

Thought for the day:

‘A pat on the back is only a few inches from a kick in the pants.’
