Alibaba has no competitors
In the candid interview Jack Ma had a lot of wisdom to share.

At least in China by far there are no competitors for Alibaba franchise.
Jack Ma was in USA because of Us SME forum being held in Detroit. The forum attracted more than 3000 guest from 48 states of the US as well as from around the world.
Speaking about Amazon that is a much similar e-commerce franchise as Alibaba, Jack Ma replied that there is no competition between the two as Amazon is a business company while Alibaba is a commercial infrastructure. He said the main aim of Alibaba infrastructure is to help small businesses and franchises in participating towards globalization and making their mark in the world economy, thus bringing prosperity to themselves and to their country.
When Charlie Ross suggested that Ma has learnt a lot from his experience as a teacher, Jack Ma whole heartedly agreed.
