Guo Guangchang, the Chinese tycoon caught up in Beijing’s anti-corruption drive, has emerged in public for the first time after four days out of sight while assisting a judicial investigation.
Mr Guo appeared on Monday to address an annual internal conference of his company Fosun, which is one of China’s largest private conglomerates. He made no mention of the investigation.
His appearance in Shanghai sparked a sustained round of applause and came as a surprise to representatives of the conglomerate’s European portfolio companies.
