Alibaba Founder Jack Ma Resurfaces After Months

Months after he disappeared, Alibaba and Ant co-founder Jack Ma has resurfaced. He addressed scores of teachers on an online conference Wednesday, part of an annual event the billionaire hosts to recognise the achievements of rural educators. His appearance, first reported in a local blog, was confirmed by people familiar with the matter, Hindustan Times reported.

It may be recalled that Ma went out of public view in November when Chinese regulators torpedoed Ant’s $35 billion IPO, tightened fintech regulations, then ordered an overhaul of Ant and launched a separate antitrust probe into Alibaba.
