Abstract

The closing decade of the 20th century promises investment opportunities with the opening up of the China market. However, the unresolved struggle between China and Hong Kong over the latter's status after l99J holds a special focus in global politics. Towering above all these issues is commodities trader and property tycoon, Robert Kuok, who created a family empire in Asia unrivalled in its complexity and geographical spread. He is poised to tap the vast potential of the China that is in the offing. His family history is intertwined with that of the economies of China and the adjacent lands. The Kuok family epitomises the Overseas Chinese who succeeded after leaving their impoverished natal land, building businesses in their new homeland, making their economic mark and now in the last decade of the century returning to their original homeland with undreamt of economic strength.
