Alibaba launches US$1.5 billion fund to help fight poverty in China

PUBLISHED : Friday, 01 December, 2017, 8:40pm
UPDATED : Friday, 01 December, 2017, 9:50pm
Tech giant Alibaba Group on Friday launched a 10 billion yuan (US$1.51 billion) fund to support China’s ambitious poverty alleviation campaign.
At a conference attended by the company’s 36 partners at its headquarters in Hangzhou, executive chairman Jack Ma announced it would set up the Alibaba Poverty Relief Fund, with the money to be donated over the next five years.
The company has set philanthropy as part of its strategic goals and will establish a “supporting coordination system” to push the cause of reducing poverty – including assigning its top executives to lead a specific programme to help farmers.
China has already lifted more than 500 million people out of poverty after three decades of economic reforms on the mainland and President Xi Jinping has made it a policy priority with a plan to eradicate extreme poverty by 2020.
Poverty in China is defined as having an annual income below 3,000 yuan (US$450) at current prices.

“Our company is perhaps the one that’s put the most serious effort into studying the 19th Communist Party congress documents,” Ma told the conference. “We studied it in order to find an answer to the question: what can we do to implement the spirit of the 19th congress?
“The anti-corruption campaign and poverty alleviation are both idealistic,” he said. “We’ve decided to make our contribution to achieving the goal of wiping out poverty.”
Ma said his commitment to poverty relief had also been inspired by late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping, chief architect of the nation’s reform and opening-up.
“Without Deng Xiaoping, there would be no us,” Ma said. “He called on the people who become rich earlier to help others who are still poor. Now that we are rich today, we should fulfil this commitment and help more people get rich.”
Company executives will be assigned to work on projects including education, poverty relief among women, developing sales of rural products from impoverished regions, and initiatives combining poverty alleviation and environment protection. All of them will have that poverty work included in their performance evaluations.
Ma said all companies within the group would also be given a poverty relief project to handle.

He said he hoped that the fund could help rural Chinese to stay in their hometowns rather than having no choice but to leave their families behind and become migrant workers in the cities.
“I hope farmers won’t have to leave their villages and they can instead become agricultural workers or forestry workers,” he said. “I think they should return to the land ... and develop their business.”
The Alibaba Foundation, the group’s charity set up in 2011, will contribute to the fund, but most of the money will come from Alibaba’s 36 partners and its employees.
Alibaba is the owner of the South China Morning Post.

  • China in the New Era

    China's 19th CPC National Congress set ambitious domestic goals for tackling poverty while reaffirming its commitment to further opening up to the world.




    Is the world ready for China?
    Then big financial story of tomorrow is going to be all about China, says Jin Keyu, Professor of Economics at LSE. It's the first time a county with only 25% of the GDP of the US is leading in many areas of tech.
    It's also the first time that the world's second-largest economy is a middle-income superpower. As we encourage China to open up, are we prepared for the shocks and volatility that even a tiny tremor in China could cause?
    China and the West: a clash of cultures?
    The future, analysts say, appears to be one of systemic dissonance between two incompatible economies, says James Kynge in the Financial Times.
    The centennial goals
    In his three-and-a-half-hour speech to the Chinese Communist Party in October, President Xi Jinping reiterated China’s two aims.
    1. To wipe out poverty by 2021, the 100th anniversary of the Party’s founding
    2. To turn China into a ‘fully developed nation’ by 2049.




    Participants discussing China's "new era" include:
    Angel GurrĂ­a, Secretary-General of the OECD; Jin Keyu, Professor of Economics at LSE; Li Sixuan, China Central Television; Mark Tucker, Group Chairman of HSBC; Xiao Yaqing, Chairman of State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC); John Zhao, Founder and CEO of Hony Capital Ltd.

  • A one-on-one with Zimbabwe's Emmerson Mnangagwa

    Mishal Husain from the BBC interviews newly appointed Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa in a post-Mugabe world.
    Mnangagwa took over from Robert Mugabe after 37 years in power. The new president, after two months in office, says he will focus on Zimbabwe's economy. "We are now open for business," he says, inviting foreign investors to the country.
    "Going into the future we want to embrace the international community," he says. "Today, Zimbabwe is ready for investment."
    At the time of independence, Zimbabwe was once a regional food basket. But the African nation has long suffered a food security crisis, with more than 4 million people believed to be malnourished. Mnangagwa says the country should be able to produce enough grain again. "We now have a food surplus."
    On the Mugabe reign, marked at times by political violence, the president says he has set up a national peace and reconciliation commission to try and heal the issues of the past did not commit to a formal apology.
    Mnangagwa tells Husain that there will be new elections this year, probably after July, and invites the international community, including the EU, to observe. "We will have transparent elections, free and fair."
    His adds that his ZANU-PF party will respect the outcome of the election, and whichever party is the winner will proceed to take the reigns of power.
    On relations with Trump and his recent comments about African countries, he says he would still talk with the US president, invites him to build golf courses near Victoria Falls!
    In other relations, he says Zimbabwe is ready to rejoin the Commonwealth, and looks forward to listening to the UK's Theresa May in Davos.
  • Jack Ma: If trade stops, war starts

  • Meet the Leader - Jack Ma

    In Davos, Alibaba founder and Executive Chairman Jack Ma spoke openly and at length about some of the key challenges facing the world, delivering a stream of unique perspectives and guidance.

    On the impact of technology

    "We are very lucky because the world is in a big transformation because of technology. This new technology will create a lot of successful people, interesting careers but honestly every new technology will create social problems.
    "The first technology revolution caused the First World War and the second technology revolution caused the Second World War - and now we have the third.
    "If there is a Third World War I think that should be a war against disease, pollution and poverty, not a war against ourselves.
    "If we don’t align together , human beings are going to fight each other, because each technology revolution makes the world unbalanced."

    On the key to success

    "To gain success a person will need high EQ; if you don't want to lose quickly you will need a high IQ, and if you want to be respected you need high LQ - the IQ of love."

    Great leadership qualities include :
    -Positive
    -Never complain
    -Have different view than normal people
    -says Jack Ma of @AlibabaGroup at

    On women in business

    "Women balance-wise they’re the best. If you want your company to be successful; if you want your company to operate with wisdom, with care, then women are the best.
    "37% of senior management in Alibaba are women. Part of the 'secret sauce' of our success is because we have so many women colleagues."

    On globalisation

    "I think globalisation cannot be stopped - no-one can stop globalisation, no-one can stop trade. If trade stops, the world stops. Trade is the way to dissolve the war not cause the war.
    "It’s our generation’s job - we have better technology and better knowledge of globalisation and it’s our generation’s responsibility or opportunity to improve it. Tell me, how can you stop globalisation?"
    "Global trade must be simple and modernised; it must be inclusive so everyone has the same opportunity. The next generation of globalisation must be inclusive."

    On artificial intelligence

    "Artificial intelligence, big data is a threat to human beings. I think AI should support human beings. Technology should always do something that enables people, not disable people.
    "People like us - we have the money, resources - we should spend money on technology that enables people, empowers people and makes life better.
    "Human beings will compete with machines - on knowledge you don’t have a chance. The computer will always be smarter than you are; they never forget, they never get angry. But computers can never be as wise a man.”
    "The AI and robots are going to kill a lot of jobs, because in the future it'll be done by machines. Service industries offer hope - but they must be done uniquely."

    On learning from failure

    "Learn from your mistakes - no matter how smart you are you will learn from them. We must share the mistakes with others.
    "My thinking is that - if you want to be successful, learn from the other peoples’ mistakes, don’t learn from success stories. The book I want to write is "Alibaba: 1,001 Mistakes".
    "It's not about what you achieve, but how many tough days you go through."

    On the value of teamwork

    "You don’t need to know a lot of things, but you need to find the people who are smarter than you are. My job is to make sure smart people are working together."
    "The best way to promote your company is through your product or services, or employees.





    "Have a philanthropy heart and business mind. Don't have business heart and philanthropy mind " said Jack Ma to young communities @wef @AlibabaGroup

    On the education challenge

    "A teacher should learn all the time; a teacher should share all the time. Education is a big challenge now - if we do not change the way we teach thirty years later we will be in trouble.
    "We cannot teach our kids to compete with the machines who are smarter - we have to teach our kids something unique. In this way, 30 years later, kids will have a chance.

    On the responsibilities of tech giants

    "Google, Facebook, Amazon and AliBaba - we are the luckiest companies of this century. But we have the responsibility to have a good heart, and do something good.
    "Make sure that everything you do is for the future."





    I had a fascinating conversation with Jack Ma from Alibaba on financial inclusion, empowering youth and creation of jobs.
