One of his early years crazy deal was to sell Japanese robots to German car makers in China, Shanghai Volkswagen. The Germans were shocked to see this young Singaporean breaking tradition mindset in China in 1997. The Germans were so proud of their technology and its almost unthinkable to see Japanese robots in a German car assembly line.
