Yogesh Mehta once admitted that he had to sell his wife’s jewellery to pay his debts in his 20s. But, arriving in Dubai 1990, he set about building a billion dollar empire and now the owner of the region’s largest chemical distributors. “When I was younger I never thought I would be recognised even by my neighbour but life gives you chances, you work hard and somewhere there is a reward,” he told the audience at the Arabian Business Achievement Awards 2019.
