Donald Trump says he’s planning to work with the founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba to help boost small businesses.
US President-elect Donald Trump has held what he said was a “great meeting” in New York with Jack Ma, chairman of the e-commerce site Alibaba.
After the meeting Mr Ma said that both had agreed that US-China relations “should be strengthened, should be more friendly and do better”.
Trump tells reporters during a brief appearance in the Trump Tower lobby the pair had “a great meeting” and called Ma a “great, great entrepreneur.”
Mr Ma said he would help US businesses create a million new jobs by using his website to sell to China.
