Dhanin Chearavanont (1): The Thai company with Chinese roots and a global vision

| China

Thailand's Charoen Pokphand Group would not be the company it is today without its long-serving chairman, Dhanin Chearavanont. Over the course of nearly five decades, he has transformed a small seed shop founded by his father into one of Southeast Asia's largest private corporations. His family is now ranked as Southeast Asia's wealthiest.

Though he rarely grants interviews, the 77-year-old chairman recently opened up to the Nikkei Asian Review about himself and the sprawling "CP empire." In this 30-part series, Dhanin recounts the history of both a man and a business, from their humble beginnings in Thailand to their success on a global scale.
