Jimmy Lai still dashing to freedom in Hong Kong

HONG KONG -- Jimmy Lai, 67, is the founder of Giordano, a pioneer in the fast fashion industry, and Apple Daily, an influential Hong Kong newspaper. He is a fighter for Hong Kong's democratization and an entrepreneur who changed the region's apparel and media businesses. 

     China has been exerting stronger control over the media lately. One notable example is the disappearance in recent months of five people related to a Hong Kong bookstore that sells books critical of the Chinese Communist Party. The Nikkei spoke with Lai to learn about how he plans to continue his struggle to protect freedom in Hong Kong.
