Among The Dragon Lines
Hong Kong Executive Council Member
Diego Mangabat is probably best known for trid spots where he’s shaking hands with the immigrant population down in Kwan Tong or Kwai Tsing. Mr. Mangabat is an immigrant himself, a Filipino who worked his way up from a laborer to the regional vice president of Daiatsu’s Hong Kong office. He’s a colorful character on the Executive Council, dressed in bright tropical shirts and speaking plainly to the people. Lately he has been subdued, as if someone has been pressuring him not to
make any waves before his upcoming Council retirement.
