Jack Ma announced in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday that Malaysia would host Alibaba’s first Electronic World Trade Platform outside of China. Ma envisions the platform as a way to offer a gateway into global ecommerce, lowering barriers into new markets, and would provide small business with easier access to financing. The platform will be run as a partnership with state-run Malaysia Digital Economy Corp.
