Alibaba sets up office in Australia to serve local businesses

Feb '17
Alibaba Group executive chairman Jack Ma inaugurated a new office in Melbourne, Australia that will serve as headquarters for the Chinese internet giant’s operations in Australia and New Zealand. The new Melbourne office is expected to help Australian and New Zealand businesses share their products with billions of customers around the world.

ANZ managing director Maggie Zhou will lead the team at the new office. Zhou is a 17-year veteran of Alibaba, who recently served as deputy general manager of cross-border B2C shopping site Tmall Global.

The Melbourne office team will support the current 1,300 Australian and 400 New Zealand businesses selling on Tmall and Tmall Global, while also working to bring new merchants onto the platforms.

“A physical Alibaba headquarters is a key step in ensuring Australian businesses have the support and information they need to succeed in China and the rest of the world,” Zhou said.

According to Alibaba, it wants to deliver more than just ecommerce services to Australian businesses and consumers. The goal is to build the entire operating infrastructure needed to enable local businesses to expand globally. (AR)
