Alibaba’s executive vice chairman Joe Tsai is hopeful of an even brighter 2016. The company has invested in various global ventures and aims to maximize its profit in the financial year 2016-17. Tsai further described the various challenges the company had gone through in the past 13 years and the alternative form of retailing which founder Jack Ma adopted. “We used 13 years to demonstrate the power of a different business model compared with brick-and-mortar retailers,” he said while speaking to a Chinese daily.
