Ng Lap Seng

This profile was compiled from Washington Post and washingtonpost.com staff reports. Click on linked names to read other profiles, or see the full list of key players.

Ng Lap Seng owns real estate in Texas, restaurants in Hong Kong, and the 19-floor Fortuna Hotel in Macao. One of Ng's business partners is Wang Jun, the chairman of one of China's largest financial conglomerates, who also heads one of the country's leading arms firms.

From The Post:
The Curious Cast of Asian Donors, Jan. 27, 1997
Ng said he hooked up with Little Rock restaurant owner Yah Lin "Charlie" Trie several years ago and that it was Trie who introduced him to the world of American politics. In 1994, the two men sought unsuccessfully to renovate a hotel in Little Rock. Later that year, Ng's Little Rock firm, San Kin Yip Inc., gave $15,000 to the DNC – just 10 days after the company was incorporated.

The Macao developer said he believed that giving money to Clinton and the Democrats would buy him access to the U.S. market.
