KUALA LUMPUR: Prominent business and corporate figure Tan Sri Dr Yeoh Tiong Lay has been bestowed with the Order of the Rising Sun, Goldrays with Neck Ribbon by the Emperor of Japan in recognition for its efforts in promoting economic cooperation between Malaysia and Japan.

He also described Yeoh as a very humble and generous philanthropist, tireless in his effort to contribute to the good causes of society. 

Yeoh is the founder of YTL group, which was the first Malaysian company to be listed in the Tokyo Stock Market in 1996, thus inviting Japanese investors not only to YTL, but indirectly exposing them to other Malaysian companies listed on Bursa Malaysia. 

Yeoh is also an active member of the Malaysia Japan Economic Association. – Bernama
