The story of Lippo Group and modern Indonesia: Mochtar Riady's story (1)

The group's founder and chairman shares his history in this exclusive series

| Indonesia

From a small bicycle parts retailer in 1950s Indonesia, Lippo Group has grown into one of the country's biggest and most diverse conglomerates. Best known as a property developer, Lippo is involved in everything from malls and hospitals to banks and blockchain technology. The group's diversity and success --- it churns out some $7 billion in revenue a year -- is largely down to its founder and long-serving chairman, Mochtar Riady.

The 89-year-old recently opened up to the Nikkei Asian Review about himself and his sprawling group. In this 30-part series, he recounts the history of both a man and a business, from their humble beginnings in Indonesia to their success on larger scale.
