MyStartr announced earlier today that over 800 attendees participated in the Alibaba Global Course 2018, which was co-hosted by Alibaba Business School at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
MyStartr is one of the few official Malaysian training partners of Alibaba Business School, the education partner of the Selangor Information Technology and E-Commerce Council (SITEC).
Officiated by Dato’ Teng Chang Khim, Executive Councillor with the Selangor State Government, the conference aimed to forge stronger ties between the e-Commerce communities of China and Malaysia, with local merchants able to tap their expertise in global e-trading, while making their products available to the Chinese consumer market.
“We know that a number of Malaysian brands such as biscuits and snacks, 3-in-1 coffee, and furniture are already well-received in China, and we want more Malaysian and Selangor brands to be as successful as well”, said Teng.
Lewis Lew, Vice President of Training College at Taobao University said: “Our mission is to make it easy to do business anywhere and the Alibaba Global Course is a natural extension of that.
“We are committed to addressing the shortage of e-commerce talent in important markets and, by empowering entrepreneurs around the world to understand and learn how to succeed in this dynamic industry. We aim to train 1,400 e-commerce individuals each year.” added Lew.
