Alibaba is one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the world and became the first Asian company to break the $400 USD billion value mark but the MD of Alibaba Group ANZ Maggie Zhou still insists ‘small is beautiful’.
In her key note speech at a recent Melbourne expo, she said the group will always take care of small and medium-sized businesses. “At Alibaba Group, we know and understand the opportunities, the struggles, and the daily challenges that confront small businesses around the world to survive and grow. We believe small is beautiful,” she said.
Meanwhile, David Gulasi, one of China’s most successful Key Opinion Leaders with more than eight million fans across his Chinese social media platforms, said: “We’ve only just seen the beginning of China’s market growth and I believe the best way for Aussie brands to take advantage of this is through Alibaba.
“As brands explore this opportunity, it’s important they also find the right ambassador. I’ve worked with many Australian companies and I can tell you, it’s not only about how many followers you have, it’s about what you stand for.”
