Kuala Lumpur (VNA) - Alibaba Group has opened its office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, marking a new chapter in the company’s strategic cooperation with the nation, reporting the local daily newspaper The Star.

At the opening ceremony of the office on June 18, Jack Ma, executive chairman and founder of Alibaba Group, expressed his confidence in Malaysia’s small businesses and youths.

He said the new office will be a training centre for Malaysians. It will serve as a one-stop solution centre and help Malaysian businesses identify global cross-border trade opportunities and provide cloud computing services.

In November last year, Alibaba launched its first overseas electronic world trade platform (eWTP) in Malaysia as part of its cooperation project with the local government.

The eWTP aims to facilitate exports for Malaysian SMEs and create the infrastructure to support global trade, with services including e-commerce, logistics, cloud computing, mobile payments and training of talent.-VNA
