Mr. Mittal began his career working in the family's steelmaking business in India, and in 1976, when the family founded its own steel business, he set out to establish its international division, beginning with the buying of a run-down plant in Indonesia.
In 1994 he branched out on his own, taking over the international operations of the Mittal steel business, which was already owned by the family.
On 20 December 2007 it was announced that the Mittal family had purchased a 20 per cent shareholding in Queens Park Rangers football club joining Flavio Briatore and Mittal's friend Bernie Ecclestone.
Despite the economic downturn affecting the steel industry, Laskshmi Mittal remains the fourth richest man in the world.
