By BERNAMA

24 October, 2007

The founder and life president of the Genting Group, Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong, 90, died of old age at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre today. He died at 11.20am, after being warded for two days, his son, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, said.Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi described Lim as a hardworking entrepreneur who had contributed to the country’s economic development in various industries.“He is also a well-known philanthropist. I believe his death is a loss not only to the nation but also to the business and entrepreneurial community in the country,” he told reporters in Ipoh.Abdullah extended his condolences to Lim’s family and said that he would pay his last respects later.Lim leaves a wife, Puan Sri Lee Kim Hua, eight children and 19 grandchildren.According to Forbes Asia magazine, Lim is Malaysia’s third richest man with assets worth US$4.3billion (RM14.6billion).The Genting Group which he founded in 1965 is now involved in diverse activities including plantation, paper manufaturing, power generation, oil and gas, electronic trading and information technology development.

I guess everyone had heard the news of the passing of the famous entrepreneur who found Genting and had brought up Genting from scratch.I have had always looked up to him as he could have had build something so big from totally nothing.at the beginning,Genting wasn't producing profit.it wasn't producing profit for 7 years if i'm not mistaken.and now,look,how successful is it.

my condolences to his family..at least he died peacefully...
