We always believe that young people will be more than we can create the future, because they are our future. Investment is young people invest in their future.
today, Mr. Lu and I was very proud to announce that after years of efforts, the alibaba group can already handed over leadership overall to after 70.

Speaking ashamed, I used to say, surely not afraid afraid of CFO CEO, and free and unfettered CFO is born. (ha ha, anything there is always a surprise, and this accident is so amazing.) Happy, of course, not only easy child such outstanding leaders, more standing behind him after a group of 70 in Athens, B2B Wu Minzhi, tao is the Zhang Jianfeng line (epilepsy), ali cloud xiao-ming hu (sun), rookie TongWenGong, mobile Internet ucweb CEO, and his place in midfield battle-hardened Jiang Peng (mitutoyo), kardashian (Su Quan), Eddie wu (east evil), Jiang Fang… After these years of efforts, alibaba’s management in 70 accounted for 45%, after after 80 managers accounted for 52%, while only 3% after 60, we are lucky, there are 3000 after 90 young people to join the alibaba group.

It is two years alibaba group business by leaps and bounds for two years, and I was able to concentrate more on strategy, culture and talent cultivation for two years. After Mr. Lu as group vice President of the board, and, together, vice President of Mr. Tsai in this new post with my work, focus on the growth of young people, focusing on the CEO of alibaba group N future handover shift system construction.
platform sales over $one trillion over the next five years, over the next 10 years to complete the global electronic commerce network construction
ali, each generation has its own glory, and every generation has its own mission and tasks. Over the past 15 years, ali people with their own persistence and action proves that e-commerce can change and affect our life, we created a unique business model. But we shouldn’t be satisfied with today’s achievement, more can’t live in other people’s praise or self-righteous success, especially today, we should not only live in the outside world to our quarterly earnings expectations, we must still like the past 16 years, live in their own ideal, live in the customer and market expectations for us. 70 after ali, therefore, the management will lead us in the next decade, catch the opportunity of Internet + era, fully into the era of cloud computing and big data.
I believe, alibaba will be in five years, in 2019 (the 20th anniversary of the founding of alibaba), become the world’s first platform sales over $one trillion in the company. Of course we can’t just be a company in the world today the most sell goods, but hope that through our electricity, finance, logistics, data, cross-border trade… Platform and services such as to establish a real open and transparent business ecosystem of prosperity, can let the countless enterprise convenient to engage in business activities. We trust and hope in 2019-2024 in the five years, alibaba’s business ecosystem will further globalization, through cloud computing and big data technology, can set up a service on a global scale, 2 billion consumers and tens of millions of enterprises “global buy, sell” global business platform, let the small and medium-sized enterprises of the whole world can through creativity, innovation and creation, really participate in the fair, free, open, equality of global trade.
we strongly believe that the next 30 years is the Internet technology really profound changes in all aspects of the social era, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, intelligent city, biological engineering… Will make countless dreams come true. This is our time, but also the era of young people.
like apple, mercedes-benz, such as samsung, alibaba in the future will also be like these respected as the global icon. Ali don’t complain or struggle with criticism and criticism, but must be accompanied by in a better return for society, to meet customer expectations and demand. Insist on for the future is not equal to today, we have to give up, but if we don’t change for the future today, we won’t see also belong to our future.
there is no omnipotent enterprises and entrepreneurs, only in people, value creation, cultural organizations and other transmission mechanism on the progress and breakthrough, is likely to make enterprises and entrepreneurs in market competition. Ali people, no matter how time change, how the world changes the temptation, we still need to be focused on the original starting point, there is no difficult to do business!
