Alibaba.com to host online summit to prepare Malaysian SMEs for post Covid-19 recovery

Alibaba.com will be organising its first online summit via live-streaming aimed at helping Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia prepare for the post Covid-19 recovery.

The summit will feature speakers from the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE), Alibaba.com and several SMEs.

The ” Go Export 2020: Alibaba.com Malaysia Online Seller Summit “, will be held online via live-streaming from 2:00pm to 3:30pm on May 21. Noraslan Hadi Abdul Kadir, Director of Transformation & Digital Trade Division, MATRADE will share more on the e-commerce landscape and support available for businesses.

Stephen Kuo, Head of Asia Pacific for Alibaba.com, will then introduce efforts by the platform to support firms during this period of economic uncertainty, sharing an overview of the global e- commerce market and valuable insights including buyer behaviours, trends, and how business can effectively access millions of global buying market audience via Alibaba.com.

“The impact of the pandemic means businesses worldwide have to rethink their business priorities, innovate, and reposition themselves. Thankfully, Malaysian businesses are uniquely placed to recover faster by leveraging cross-border opportunities given the established infrastructure available here, including the very first overseas Electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP) Hub,” said Stephen Kuo, Head of Asia Pacific for Alibaba.com.

“We hope to help meaningfully in the crucial recovery phase, and hand businesses here with the right confidence and capability to do so.”

The summit will also feature sharing sessions by Malaysian SMEs who have successfully leveraged Alibaba.com to keep their business thriving, sharing experiences from their own digital transformation journeys during the pandemic and how they developed innovative online business strategies to identify and unlock new opportunities.

Since the launch of eWTP in Malaysia in 2017, Alibaba Group has been a strong partner of leading government agencies and local businesses here, working closely together to introduce Malaysian products to Chinese consumers and wholesale buyers from around world through our various platforms such as Tmall Global and Alibaba.com. Last year, Alibaba hosted its second annual Malaysia Week in China, successfully introducing more than 800 Malaysian products from over 100 brands to the vast Chinese market.
