KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong, the founder of the Genting Group and one of the worlds richest men, died Tuesday. He was 90.
His son Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay said his father died at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre where he was admitted two days ago.
The funeral will be held on Monday. more
Lim Goh Tong was renowned for his vision in transforming Genting Highlands from an unexplored hilltop to one of the world’s most successful casino resorts. The fifth child in a family of seven children, Lim migrated from China’s Fujian province in 1937 at the age of 19 with only a small suitcase and US$175.
I really salute him for his effort and his idea of Geting Highlands. If without him, I think Malaysia is not as well know as now and we can’t enjoy ourselves in Geting for holidays.
Hope his son will continue his footsteps.
