Mr. Ambani is looking to make Reliance the next biggest tech giant in the world market. He was recently reported to be on a deal-making spree throughout the pandemic. He has racked up tens of billions from the spree elevating his wealth to $92.9 billion. This made him Asia’s richest man and ranked 11th richest person in the world.
