20+ Photos Of Carlos Ghosn With World Top Leaders

NIKKEI Asia | VozPopuli

We all know the fame of Carlos Ghosn. In the past year, he became dubbed as the most famous fugitive as his incredible escape from Japan made the headlines for months (and still does).

However, Carlos Ghosn reached great fame long before that and was greeted with respect by world leaders, including kings.

His reputation achieved stardom in the business world and beyond, way before all this scandal, which could possibly come to be proven a plot against him, as he and his lawyers claim.

A business genius in his own right, Ghosn did dedicate his remarkable talent to companies that weren’t his. One could only wonder why didn’t he take off on his own, building his own empire like others of his caliber have done quite successfully.

Ghosn didn’t only build or save empires for others, empires that are now adamant to condemn him, but he also built good relationships, some even close, with top world leaders and personalities.

Friends in high places, he is said to have. Or so he had until he was struck by this alleged conspiracy.

“When you’ve been in business as long as I have, you build a global network of contacts and receive invitations to events dealing with global issues,” Ghosn wrote in his book My Personal History: Carlos Ghosn.

It is to note that Carlos Ghosn, who has been painted as a villain by his opponents and the media worldwide, is actually a multi-award recipient, among which the Action Against Hunger’s Humanitarian Award, and the Legion d’Honneur of the Order of Knights of France.
