Jack Ma

At CeBIT in Hannover, Germany, Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma showed off some home-grown technology that might be a mobile-tech match made in heaven: selfies and online-payment security.

Sales by U.K. brands on China's Tmall.com and Tmall Global shopping websites surged 94 percent last year--and it's all part of Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma's plan to make his e-commerce company an international powerhouse.

Alibaba's iconic business leader followed up his company's establishment of a foundation to fund young Hong Kong entrepreneurs with some sage advice.

Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma says his e-commerce company, which raised $25 billion last year in the world’s largest-ever IPO, is still “a baby.”

With Internet usage in rural China rising faster than urban areas, Alibaba Group hopes to tap that enthusiasm in the countryside to drive e-commerce and economic growth in China's western region.

The needs of China's rising consumer class are quickly overwhelming the country's domestic resources and environment, says Alibaba Group's founder. The solution: fewer restrictions on international trade and more imports for China.

The Wall Street Journal says the generosity of the Alibaba co-founders is being viewed as "the dawn of a new era of giving" in China. Meanwhile, Ma this week was named to TIME magazine's annual list of the world's most influential people.
