Li Ka-shing officially steps down

HONG Kong tycoon Li Ka-shing yesterday officially stepped down as leader of a business empire after showing up as chairman of CK Hutchison and CK Asset at the two companies’ annual general meetings.

Li, who will turn 90 in July, was succeeded by his elder son, Victor Li Tzar Kuoi, 53.

After retirement, he will serve as a senior adviser of the companies and focus on his charity foundation which was set up in 1980. The changes are in line with his announcement made in March.

“Tomorrow, I will continue to go to office as usual. A lot of work needs to be handled in the foundation,” Li said.

Born in July 1928 in Guangdong Province, Li started his career in 1950 as a plastic-flower maker and gradually built a global conglomerate in real estate, infrastructure, ports and telecommunications.
