Who is China’s former premier Zhu Rongji?

Zhu managed China’s economy through a difficult period when wasteful state-owned enterprises were reformed or shut down, leading to massive layoffs.

He was also a key driver behind China’s entry to the World Trade Organization in 2001.

In 2013 and 2014, Zhu donated a total of 40 million yuan ($6.5 million) to support education in poor areas, making him China’s most philanthropic retired politician.
