Mumbai: Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani has became the first Indian to enter the global top 10 richest billionaire list complied by Hurun Research.
According to the Hurun Global Rich List 2019 released on Tuesday, Ambani broke into the top 10 in the world for the first time after a $9 billion or 20 per cent surge in his wealth to $54 billion.
“The only Asian in the Top 10, Ambani’s wealth is based on telecom, retail and energy, and bucked the poor stock market trend in India last year,” Hurun Research said in a statement.
“Ambani’s flagship Reliance Jio Infocomm announced the launch of international roaming between India and Japan, a first for India’s 4G mobile operators to provide VoLTE-based international roaming services in India.” (IANS)
