Jack Ma, founder and chair­man of China’s e-com­merce gi­ant Alibaba, said on Tues­day that his com­pany was go­ing to work with the Thai gov­ern­ment to help small busi­ness in the coun­try to de­velop and also to boost e-pay­ment. Dur­ing a speech at the Thai Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs, Ma said he ear­lier had a talk for more than two hours with high rank­ing of­fi­cials of the Thai gov­ern­ment, dur­ing which they agreed to work on sev­eral ar­eas to­gether in­clud­ing of­fer­ing help to small busi­ness and train­ing them for on­line trade. “We want to hire at least 30 Thai young peo­ple to work at the Alibaba head­quar­ters in Hangzhou for one or two years and send them back, so they un­der­stand our sys­tem and can sup­port more peo­ple here,” Ma said.
