| ||.When I was 11 years old my geography teacher came into
the classroom – geo is very important – this morning I was in western lake of hangzhou- I met some westerners
and I asked where are you from? – they said some nation – I said I didnt know – so they drew a map- now
I know where they are from |
thought to myself very interesting- if I can communicate with the westerners about the world- so the next day I went to west
lake looking for foreigners – for 9 years every morning whether snow rain or sun looking for foreign tourists to
become a free guide – I made a lot of friends – at that time there was no English book for me – so I asked
tourists to teach me- and one of the american lady who became a pen friend she said jack your name is difficult for westerners
to pronounce – do you need an English name? she said my father’s called jack , my husband called jack –
can I call you jack” – I said yes since then I have been using jack ma for almost 30 years
–this trained me to think differently than other
kids of my generation because everything I learnt from the tourists (of the outside world) was so different from the things
I learnt from schools, parents because we thought china and the woreld was like that but the tourists helped me find out about
a different world
That trained my thinking differently – when everyone
agrees about something , normally I take a minute to think about is that true- similarly if everyone disagrees!
When I was trying to pass exams for university
– only about 6% of students could go to university so I failed 3 times-- ..only the hunter teachers college that accepted
me – I went there and was trained there for 4 years – after graduating I was only guy assigned to teach in
a university out of 500 graduates because I was considered to be a good student the other 499 were assigned to middle school
That day when I graduate my president at teachers college said jack go to that university
and don’t leave for 5 years because he knew with my personality I might want to do something else but I made him the
promise I would do that
for 6 years – pay was bad, teachers not respected but I loved teaching –people may not realize that there were
still no ways to learn to teach English in our city- so i listened to the BBC an voice of america – there every evening
8 to 9 oclock I listened to – first book I heard about adventures of tom sawyer – so this struck me that there
are so many kids in rural, poor areas with no education – how about using the inetrenet, mobile phone, the ipad much
better opportunity to give the kids Since 1999 I
am business people leader for the ali baba group I still call myself chief education officer, everywhere I go I spend time
with young people. Sharing with them my experience my encouragement ,,, I think the ways the world is changing… I am
proud of being a teacher for 6 years – elected by students as best teacher… many of my students are co-founders
of ali baba- I taught probably 2000 students in evening school and the eldest one was 86 years old! I think you as a teacher
learn so much from the students , benefit so much from the studentrs, and everybody apart from the parents has a teacher –
and if you respect your teacher and love them , like a parent, in china the teacher is a father, the teacher is a mother ….......

we also need this letter so ian's friend can also explain why jack ma also needs to visit
sir fazle - as well as reworking on supporter networks of jim kim and gordon brown and prince charles (ie all commonwealth
connections including canadian justin trudeau jack ma's most relevant western friend, all francsican connections) - why have
their systems practically failed to connect ma and sir fazle -eg this summer ma's annual new summit in hangzhou was on girl
empowerment - there was jim kim as chief guest but no sir fazle and no bridge to pope francis even though all ultra girl empowerment
solutions are franciscan , freire based; all are urgent as far as 2 lead summits of 2018 are concerned - india's hosting of
what new development banking is for mumbai june 2018 and argentina's hosting of g20 in july 2018
meanwhile sir fazle needs to think how will brac be organised so that
the following sorts of partnerships can be discussed
1 include brac university (and its
hackathons) on same partnership network on blockchain as ma already included china's main anti poverty thinktank -nb in west
microsoft has taken over as hackathon and hub producer and is accelerating big bank blockchains, india's modi loves hackathons
but he needs chinese characteristics not microsoft characteristics
The great changes
China has experienced over the past three decades led the country to become the world's second largest ..
2 form subnetwork of brilliant big data small
coders (including those bangladesh americans sal khan and the quadirs can reach at mit legatum and abdul latif) how do sustainability
generation using alipay with super mobile infrastructure interact with www.bkash.com
with low mobile and transportaion infrastructure- this question isnt just relevant to bangaldesh but the whole
china india bangladesh myanmar corridor (likely also north korea corridor too) -remember brac (in same way as ma) is
about total value chain (markets redesign) for girls empowerment finacial and ecuation and health sustem - eg knowing brac
can also review every value chain that real microcredit changed through girls networks - china and bangladesh/brac began their
race to end poverty sharing research on rice- then china was invested in by the 3rd wealthiest financial network on the planet
the chinese superport diaspora while sir fazle had to build everything from nothing other than village mothers and daughters
trust - also brac remains the hope of the worldwid banking network with value Home - Global Alliance - For Banking on Values
jack ma's 2020s challenge- half of youth jobless or half of youth microfranchising
communities happiness industries - health, green, education, communities (eg sports) for all, developing smart middle class
3 brac girl power and jack ma can help students now plant happiness industries once he has time
for that since they are all about renewing every community same way his grand plan from 2020 tokyo olympics onwards is about
-this includes quick starts on missing education curriculum that can only be peer to peer networked outside the classroom
including girls adolescent health and safety clubs and english as 10 times more affodrable second language for changing knowledge
from carbon big brother designed to green little sister communities
as well as yuxuan's rhodes connections, tsinghua is the main public policy university so can help
brac univeristy upgrade all its public servant programs; yuzuan knows the founders of aliresearch network through which jack
ma has closest relationships with tsinghua and therefore which he can introduce all chinese entreprenurs to as he chairs
that club out of beijing dresignated entrepreneurial suburb; she has also been in middle of scaling serve china
mostofa- please get me the letter from sir fazle - i will
then get it faxed to her department in oxford if neither of you have found any other way to communicate with her; I really
need this urgently to show ian too
once we have
fixed sir fazle's support of whatever yuxuan wants- we can ask sir fazle to write letter to amy at columbia assuming there
are connections that he and amy still want to build out of columbia- menawhile i need to concentrate on other problems - last
night i discovered that trump was mainly voted for to improve american infrastructure!!
mostofa after 11 years of reserach with you and muhamamd yunus on girls lift up half
the world, i cannot afford any more miscommunications between you sir fazle amy and yuxuan; i hope you understand your countrty
is an extremely difficult place because of boths sorts of misinformation networks - ; there would really be no reason why
the chinese should prioritise any time on it if it wasnt for the urgent china india bangladesh myanmar corridor (if this doesnt
get prominence among belt road summits india will likely never win-win with china in time for tere to be a sustainability
generation) and if we cant help girl students explain to jack ma that the only things he doesnt know about extreme girl empowerment
are evident in all sir fazle's work as long as its truly mooced now
I graduated from Tsinghua University with a Bachelor's degree

World Trade Platform (eWTP) should become a key policy recommendation for G20
China-EU Digital Research Center will support this initiative
Introduction by Yu Ping, Vice Chair and Sherpa of B20 China
business representatives of the G20 countries met last 17 April at the headquarters of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
in Washington DC. This meeting, coinciding with the annual Spring Meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, was the first B20
China Joint Taskforce Meeting. ChinaEU is honored to be a member of B20, which stands for the business representation in the
G20 meeting preparatory process. The B20 group discusses policy recommendations for the world economic governance that will
be submitted to the heads of state of the G20 countries when they meet in in Hangzhou, China, on 4–5 September 2016.
Several strategic recommendations are being considered, among which stands the proposal of setting up an Electronic World
Trade Platform (e-WTP).
Keynote speech by Zhu Min, Deputy Director of IMF
The Washington B20
session opened with a positive note from the IMF, who showed strong confidence in China’s economic growth. Deputy Managing
Director Zhu Min admitted that the world economy is facing downgrade with a growth rate at 3.2%, a decrease of two percentage
points compared to the IMF’s previous forecast. Government debt has especially become a serious issue, increasing by
42% in two years to reach 106%. Despite the global economic challenges, China’s growth rate was instead upgraded from
6.3% to 6.5%, showing signs of stabilization and recovery, according to both Zhu and Ma Jun, Chief Economist of People’s
Bank of China.
Keynote speech by Ma Jun, Chief Economist of the People’s Bank of China
Business leaders and economists commented on the role of B20 and G20 in restructuring the global economy. A few words
were spent also on the leadership of China, which this September will chair the G20 meeting in Hangzhou, headquarters of e-commerce
Frank Ning, Chair of Trade & Investment
Taskforce and Chairman of Sinochem, proposed that G20 can play a bigger role in rebalancing world economy by bringing more
real exchange of goods, accelerating technology and innovation, as well as giving more value to manufacturers, instead of
focusing too much on finance.
Dimitris Tsitsigaros, Vice President
of IFC, Global Client Services believed that G20 should also play a role in promoting regional integration, reducing protectionism,
improving access to global value chain and upgrading the global financial infrastructure.
As Ren Hongbin, Chair of Infrastructure Taskforce and Chairman of China National Machinery Industry Corporation,
pointed out that, to mitigate current economic challenges, reform in infrastructure is key, which is also one of the few areas
identified by IMF reports as having potential to deliver strong productive gains across all kinds of countries.
Green investment and financial inclusion involving private sector players were among the hottest
China is believed to make a successful leader
of B20 as well as G20 to deliver favorable results in addressing global challenges, given its infrastructure-oriented One
Belt One Road Initiative and the profound structural reform undergoing in the country.
The B20 has set up five taskforces, namely Financing Growth, Trade & Investment, Infrastructure,
SME Development and Employment, to brainstorm on the most appropriate policy recommendations to make to the G20 government
leaders. The taskforces met close-door to agree on the scope and drafting of these key business recommendations.
The most notable recommendation discussed in the SME Development Taskforce is the proposal
to set up an eWTP.
Jack Ma at Boao Forum in March 2016 (Source: XinHua News Agency)
idea of an eWTP (Electronic World Trade Platform) was originally launched by Jack Ma, Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group
and also Chair of the SME Development Taskforce, at Boao Forum (to read Ma Yun’s full speech in Chinese, please click here) in March this year. The platform will facilitate SMEs’ development and integrate public-private dialogue on e-commerce
The key goal of eWTP is to promote ‘inclusive’
trade. Inclusive trade refers to reducing the threshold effect, faced by SMEs to participate in cross-border e-trade. The
WTP will provide SMEs a transparent and open platform to sell their goods and services globally.
E-trade, often known as cross border electronic commerce, is an innovative trade mode, seen
in many ways as a game changer for global trade. It opens new opportunities for revenue growth through cost reduction and
reach to more customers, benefiting all businesses and especially SMEs.
problems many SMEs face today include limited access to the market, limited access to information about export opportunities
and access to trade finance, and limited access to information on legislations in different regions.
E-trade therefore offers a new and efficient channel for SMEs to conduct cross border trade
directly, and to set up seamless interactions with their customers.
brings SMEs interactive connections with significant numbers of both domestic and overseas customers, as well as highly efficient
digitalized operations. It helps lower the threshold of cross border trade for SMEs to enter as well as facilitates more efficient
flow of products, information and money. In addition to expanding consumption and promoting trade growth, it can also drive
innovation and industrial upgrade.
E-WTP proposes to bring together
all stakeholders and enable efficient dialogue between public and private sectors to address policy challenges facing SMEs,
sum up best practices and generate common industry standards.
Mary Andringa, Co-Chair of SME Taskforce, Chair of Vermeer Corporation stated, 95% of the number of firms in the G20 countries
are SMEs, generating two thirds of employment and 80% of GDP. Digital economy is key for SMEs to reduce complexity in regulations,
access to GVCs and access to finance, among which e-commerce is the only element which can make the difference.
ChinaEU is actively advocating lifting all barriers preventing European and Chinese enterprises
to interact in the digital ecosystem and advocating facilitating access to information on export opportunities and legislations.
The ChinaEU Digital Research Center, to be launched later this year in cooperation with China Internet Development Foundation
(CIDF), exactly aims at monitoring and comparing legislations and regulations in key digital areas, such as e-commerce and
cloud services, data protection, 5G and future networks. The research center will not only accelerate information sharing
between European and Chinese digital markets, but will also in the medium term help identify best practices.
By the end of May this year, CCPIT (China Council for the Promotion of International Trade),
in cooperation with the OECD, will co-organize an e-commerce summit during the China Beijing International Fair for Trade
and Services which takes place from 28th May to 1st June. Representatives from both B20 and WTO will attend, sharing constructive
views on the implementation of e-WTP. This meeting will be followed by the Second B20 Joint Taskforce Meeting, to be held
in Paris on May 31st.
www.valuechaingeneration.com is a great web site- and its take on taobao is certainly instructive to the western eye
Posted in Uncategorized
Taobao Marketplace is China’s premier online consumer-to-consumer market place. It is owned by the Alibaba Group, a company that grew in fame for its online wholesale platform. Recently, Taobao was covered byThe Financial Times in an article describing how the marketplace spurs entrepreneurship in rural areas.
Village epicenters called Taobao villages, where 10% or more of the families are involved in e-commerce operations
with joint revenue of over 1.5 million USD, are mushrooming. Entrepreneurs are investing in order processing operations, and
hiring people to make sure that products are packaged properly and on time for shipment. There are even reports of youth returning to the village from the city after their studies to help grow the business.
Taobao advertisements are seen in Qinghe village, Hebei province. Photographer: Tianyi Li/Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. via Bloomberg
What’s under the hood?
One element that drives success for the platform
is a demand for authentic and healthy products, directly from the countryside with Chinese rural consumers. A backlash following the stream of food scandals in the country’s food industry. The platform can now link producers and consumers directly together, and they
are able to forge deals based on trust.
But this is not
the most compelling element of the platform. What the FT article also mentions is that poor and less-developed rural areas
are spurring sales growth the most. What I thus suspect to be the real driver underlying these new rural business models is
revealed by what this rural e-shop owner says in this short video. As the most import problem that Taobao solves, he states:
“With a real shop, the worst thing is that customers pay
on credit. The advantage of Taobao is that you can’t pay on credit”
Instantly you can see the value that the platform has been able to create. Before, a rural
shopkeeper’s market was tightly geographically constrained to where the influence of the next village took over. No
wonder that many of its customers could get away with putting their purchases on the tab. With the internet enabled marketplace,
this geographic constraint is lifted. Shopkeepers are now able to filter out rural dwellers who have cash in hand to directly
pay for their purchases, amongst a population of a couple of 100 million people.
Through creating new and expansive market connections, the internet has been able to accommodate
a new revenue stream, and to accelerate cash flow within a rural economy. It is a classic mechanism that creates economic

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan
Mission: 100 million new jobs
already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.
The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an
even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the
global economy to create a more equitable world.
It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement
of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.
In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the
past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented"
figure - before looking to the future.
"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means
one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.
But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's
online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread
evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".
are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing
models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.
"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical
infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and
a host of other fields."
The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all
Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.
It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.
THE NEW 'NATURAL RESOURCE'
It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in
the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.
"Over the next 30 years, with computing
power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services,
manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.
"The internet revolution is a historical
inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.
mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future"
and "help companies all over the world to grow".
"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China
- marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale
to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."
Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud
hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.
'100 MILLION NEW JOBS'
Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment,
as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.
"In the coming years, we anticipate
the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single
value chain," he said.
"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business,"
pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."
A shift to mobile revenue was one such
change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese
retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.
"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a
major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.
Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app,
which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects
the company aimed to focus on.
"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower
10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult
journey than the one behind us."

- who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the
online commerce platform Ali Baba.
Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country,
which he says is loved by many Chinese.
"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're
all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."
"I asked what they do
apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."
It wasn't all
social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.
Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He
determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese
entrepreneur he could valuably link into.
Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that
was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest
retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..
the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating
concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big
corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed
story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural
ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)
His other mall was pitched at the
more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive
retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually
rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)
consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise
with global image or local cultural joy
Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel.
It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal
reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and
most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.
ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in
china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership.
AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement
Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours
on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of
youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding
(as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's
future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
