Happy 18th year Anniversary for my company Alibaba Group.
We grew from 18 founders into 54,421 ppl with about 25,000 of it are Tech related. We threw up a big party to put as much ppl as we can in one place to show the appreciation to every one that worked for the mission we believe: "Make it easy to do business anywhere 让天下没有难做的生意"
I love the part of this event when they show us how the Chinese businessman struggled during the offline to online or OEM to Branding tranformation and how we work together in the ecosystem. We also use this opportunity to thank to our family that supported us a lot while we are "too busy" to be with them, Jack himself flew 870 hours last year while all Aliren spent 680,000 hours ( i think i contributed quite something too). Jack's speech today keep reminding us to be humble yet proud of what we have done before. Customer First, Partner Second and Team come after that. Enjoy Life, Work Hard and Believe your dream is the way we can have long lasting.
I am proud to be Aliren and i thank myself for all the effort these years. #alibaba#alibabagroup#jackma#ecommerce#internet#annualparty#hangzhou
