He was among the creators of the famous 'Big Dragon Project' which launched the chess burst in China, and today we all can see the outstanding results of this undertaking as China gradually turns into a chess superpower. His brightest chess event in Malaysia - the Malaysian Chess Festival - is another successful brainchild. His contribution to the chess movement in Asia was extensive. I had the greatest respect for him.
Everything he did he was doing it with great talent and passion and no surprise that all his undertakings were big success no matter to which domain they belong: chess, construction or horse-race.
He will always remain in our hearts. He is a big loss to the sports world.
We join his family in mourning.
