Our founder & MD Philip Bateman went to Hangzhou, China, to participate in the Alibaba ‘B2B and B2C Executive training’ aka the ‘Alibaba Dream-Trip’ – his third trip to China, the first being as part of his Masters Degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, during an Asia Pacific Business Study tour, the second exhibiting Bravo Charlie at the China International Fair for Investment and Trade in Xiamen, now (March 2017) spending a week visiting colleagues, the famed West Lake in Hangzhou, Song Cheng theme park (for business purposes, obviously) and then 4 days at the two 20,000 + employee Alibaba campuses, located within 10 kms of each other.  An amazing, eye opening trip.

   

   

The Alibaba story itself is quite amazing and something we highly recommend you take a look at, it will indeed shape the future of the world (and is already doing it).  You can also find specifics about Alibaba and the Export Opportunity for Australia in our Toolkit available.
