Beijing: Chinese billionaire Jack Ma, suspected to be missing following Beijing’s aggressive crackdown on Alibaba Group, resurfaced on Wednesday.
“#JUSTIN: #JackMa not disappear, here we go: Ma just had a video conference with 100 village teachers on Wednesday morning, saying: after #COVID19, we’ll meet each other again,” tweeted Qingqing Chen, Chief Reporter of Global Times News, a China state-affiliated media.
Ma had mysteriously disappeared from the public eye after Beijing’s aggressive crackdown on his business empire.
She further added that Jack Ma met with 100 rural teachers in the country through video conferencing.
“Ma, who used to be an English teacher and founder of #Alibaba, also gives wishes to village teachers via a video on Wednesday,” tweeted Qingqing Chen. China state-affiliated media also shared a video in which the billionaire can be seen addressing the gathering.
Ma generally interacts with rural teachers in Sanya, Hainan every year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this meeting took place via video conference this year.
