Given the CCP’s overriding priorities of rebuilding a strong domestic economy and maintaining robust supply chains against external threats, it is unlikely to embark on an extensive campaign like it did in 2020 and 2021 to rein in technology platforms.
Lin Li-he, deputy chief editor of South China Morning Post, who was forced to resign for criticizing the Chinese government, says in an interview with AFP that Jack Ma's Alibaba Group and the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have a close relationship. It is hard to imagine that Ma will tolerate any criticism toward the CCP or the Chinese political system.
Alibaba executive vice chairman Joseph Tsai points out, executive chairman Jack Ma found out from talking to Taiwanese entrepreneurs that the common concern is a lack of young successors. In order to help young people build start-ups, Alibaba will give out NT$10 billion (approximately US$ 307 million) of venture funds.
