Money Talk Business Breakfast
This week Anna Fenton introduces Hong Kong's Sindhi community. Historian and author Jason Wordie explains how from humble beginnings as refugees when Sindh province became part of Pakistan in 1947 following partition, the Sindhis have become pillars of Hong Kong's business community. They are renowned not just for their resourcefulness, hard work and tight-knit communty, but also for their distinctive sense of style and glamour. We meet three leading members of the Hong Kong Sindhi community: Bhagwenti Mohan, Angelina Sadhwani (pictured) and Roshan Melwani.
From There To Here, Saturdays at 8.30am from November 19.
Presented by Anna Fenton and produced by Phil Whelan
