Jack Ma lays out plan to create 1 million jobs for Trump
Alibaba aims to bring farmers and small businesses onto its platform to sell to Chinese consumers over the next five years
Alibaba’s Jack Ma told incoming US president Donald Trump about his plans to create a million US jobs by bringing farmers and small businesses onto its platform to sell to Chinese consumers over the next five years, an Alibaba spokesman told Reuters.
“We had a great meeting,” Trump told reporters on January 9 as he accompanied Ma back down to the lobby of his Trump Tower headquarters after the meeting. He hailed the 52-year-old self-made Chinese billionaire as a “great, great entrepreneur, one of the best in the world,” AFP reported.
Trump, who made job creation a core of his election campaign, said the two would do great things together.
