 Ma Yun: today is the beginning of real globalization


Today, many people feel that globalization has brought about various problems. And I dont think so. I think today is the time for real globalization. Ma Yun said that today is yesterday, the original, traditional and industrial era of globalization is coming to an end. The globalization of the new, real and digital age has just opened up.

He said that in the past, globalization was dominated by developed countries and large enterprises. In the future, globalization should lead developing countries and small and medium-sized enterprises to the world. In the past 30 years, 6000 large enterprises have decided to globalize. In the future, 60 million small and medium-sized enterprises should decide globalization.

In a new round of globalization, China will change from selling and selling to buying and buying. The last globalization was driven by the consumption of 300 million people in the United States; this globalization in China is the domestic demand of 1.4 billion people, which will drive the next round of real globalization and drive the world economy. For entrepreneurs, the future opportunities are in Chinas small towns with millions of people.

Ma Yun believes that if China went out in the past, it was necessary for people to go out, machines to go out and funds to go out; todays Chinas going out needs information going out, service going out and value going out. Globalization is an ability to serve the world, not to make world money. Chinese enterprises should firmly go global instead of conquering the world.

2020 should be said to be a turning year. I have discussed with many entrepreneurs and found that we are more or less anxious. Among all the great uncertainties today, Mr. Ma said, digitization is certain. The next decade will be the last decade for traditional industries to promote digitization.

The following is the full text of Ma Yuns speech:

Im very glad to meet you all in Haikou. After the epidemic, we know that meeting each other is a very precious thing.

This is the first time that the annual meeting of green companies has been held in Hainan, and it is also the first time that so many entrepreneurs from China Entrepreneur Club (CEC) have come to Hainan collectively. When we come to Hainan this time, we have no other ideas. We just want to support the free trade port, because at this time, China needs to be more open and more in line with the world!

The year 2020 is very special, and the future must be a watershed in history. Hainans becoming a free trade port must also be a historic choice. I hope that the Hainan conference of CEC will also become a meeting across the times. After the outbreak of the epidemic, the beginning of new globalization and the arrival of the whole digital age, CEC entrepreneurs can create in this period of history Unique value.

I was in Wuhan yesterday, and I went to Wuhan with more than 30 directors of CEC. Watching Wuhan on TV a few months ago was really difficult. This time I came to Wuhan, I really felt that Wuhan was a heroic city with heroic temperament. The epidemic is over. We should think about how to revive the economy. The purpose of economic rebirth is not to go back to yesterday or to the past, but to see the future from the epidemic situation, see the trend and seize the opportunity at a higher level.

At this time, adhering to globalization is more important and meaningful than ever. Now Hainan is standing at a new historical starting point. The construction of a free trade port is not a simple opportunity for Hainans development, nor is it an opportunity for Chinas economic development, but a historical responsibility to explore new globalization for the world.

In my opinion, internationalization and globalization are two different concepts. Internationalization is more inclined to Chinese doing business with foreigners, mainly bilateral. Globalization is a major event of all countries in the world and a global issue.

First, I think today is the time for real globalization to begin.

Today is yesterday, the old, the traditional, the industrial age of globalization is coming to an end. The globalization of a new, real, digital age has just opened up.

In the past, globalization was dominated by developed countries and large enterprises. In the future, globalization should enable developing countries and small and medium-sized enterprises to go to the world. In the past, trade was the main force of globalization. In the future, science and technology will be the main force of globalization. In the past, people and goods were flowing. In the future, data and services were flowing. In the past, traditional enterprises were globalized, and the future was to make good use of Internet technology In the future, anyone with only one mobile phone can do global business. In the future, all small and medium-sized enterprises will be multinational companies. In the past 30 years, 6000 large enterprises have decided to globalize. In the future, 60 million small and medium-sized enterprises will decide to go global. Geographical expansion is business expansion, which is a great opportunity for us from the world.

Second, this is a new round of globalization driven by Chinas domestic demand.

We need to keep going out. I remember that our former people went out to find the gap. We felt that others had done a good job in this and that one. Today, many of our Chinese enterprises are going abroad, or many Chinese people are looking for feelings. When were looking for feelings, were actually going backwards.

The last globalization was driven by the consumption of 300 million people in the United States; this globalization in China is the domestic demand of 1.4 billion people, which will drive the next round of real globalization and drive the world economy. Import is not the end point. Import will ultimately force Chinas industrial upgrading and consumption upgrading, and promote the development of modern service industry.

For entrepreneurs, the future opportunities are in Chinas small towns with millions of people. I dont know if you know how many cities in China have a population of over 1 million. I made a preliminary statistics in 2014. There are less than 12 cities with a population of 1 million in the United States and 167 cities in China with a population of 1 million. However, the infrastructure construction of 1 million people and the huge industry born of 1 million people are far from being well developed. With a population of nearly one million cities, maybe we will have 300 in the future, and these places will burst out with huge consumption potential. Domestic demand is absolutely not driven by the rich. It should meet the needs of every ordinary people. The pull of domestic demand of ordinary people is the real sustainable development value of domestic demand.

Third, new globalization is an ability to serve the world.

The core of globalization is to create value, create jobs in other countries and regions, and do things that cannot be done locally. If we say that in the past, Chinas going out must require people to go out, machines to go out and funds to go out; todays Chinas going out needs information going out, service going out and value going out. Globalization is an ability to serve the world, not to make world money.

Chinese enterprises should firmly go global instead of conquering the world. Many people climb mountains and think that they want to conquer nature, but nature is not to conquer, nature should be subject to. For the real value of the world, it is not expedition, but to create value.

What we want to win back is not only profits, but also respect. What we want to show is not a strong country, but a good and beautiful country. We dont want to transfer excess capacity, but to create new and different values, respect local culture, local values, local religions and beliefs, and respect for everyone There are different mechanisms and systems in different countries. We have to believe that the world is beautiful because it is different. Its all like you, its not good. Its like everybody else.

2020 should be said to be a turning year. I have discussed with many entrepreneurs and found that they are more or less anxious. In fact, everyone has anxiety, any era, any enterprise, anyone has anxiety, but some people are sensitive and some are not.

Therefore, we should face the future and solve todays problems with the methods of the future, not the methods of yesterday. Many people are very optimistic, and many people are very pessimistic. I think that over optimism and over pessimism are all because they dont see the future clearly.

Yesterdays views and actions determine the present day of your enterprise, and todays views and thoughts determine the future of your enterprise. The future doesnt mean what you will look like in two years time. The future refers to what your enterprise will become after 20 years or 30 years. Every enterprise here, your scale today, your achievements today, what we have achieved today is not what we do today, all because we believed that China will have today 20 years ago. I believe that when you judge from today what will become of the world and society in 20 years, and solve the problems in the future, I believe young people, you will have a future.

Among all the great uncertainties today, I think digitization is certain, and digitalization will transform all industries in an all-round way. Not every enterprise has to transform, but every enterprise must upgrade and complete digital upgrading. Now dont worry about the old Wang who has been competing with you for 20 or 10 years. What you need to worry about is those Xiao Li that you dont know and havent seen. These people have never appeared. They have no burden. They adopt new technologies, dare to innovate and dare to use the Internet. These young people will be the hope of China, but it may also be the pressure that everyone here may encounter. In the end, it is not the Internet enterprises that beat you, but the enterprises that make good use of Internet technology. I hope all enterprises must think about it today, and upgrade their management, organization and products by using data.

The next decade will be the last decade for traditional industries to promote digitization. In fact, 20 years ago, in many provinces I have been to, I kept talking about the impact of the Internet on the retail industry and the manufacturing industry. We didnt respond to it. Until Taobao, tmall, Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent got up, we suddenly felt that wolf was coming. In fact, wolf has always been there.

In fact, the more industries far away from technology in the future, the more industries that have not been transformed by technology, the greater the opportunities. In fact, as long as a lot of enterprises invest more technology, more talents and more ideas, the benefits and values obtained will be very certain. Today, if you are purely an Internet company, you may not have a return, but if you turn your traditional enterprise into a digital one, your return is certain.

The epidemic situation will always end, but Xinguan disease may accompany mankind for hundreds of years or even thousands of years. Now, the virus may live longer than any of us. We should learn to adapt, and our epidemic prevention should also learn to change from routine epidemic prevention to normal epidemic prevention. Perhaps in the future, most hospitals will have a new crown Department, which is a possible situation for long-term coexistence.

2020 is destined to be a year to change history. When we were in Wuhan, CEC entrepreneurs put forward the following requirements: entrepreneurs are not equal to rich people, and rich people are not necessarily entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs are the high-quality assets of a country and a nation. When the country is in a crisis, entrepreneurs do not need to be ordered to come forward voluntarily. The epidemic is a sudden disaster, and we must take the initiative to take the responsibility; entrepreneurs are also duty bound to recover the economy after the epidemic.

All enterprises, entrepreneurs here, if your enterprise has not experienced three or five disasters in ten or twenty years, your enterprise will never be able to withstand the blow. The more the world changes, the more at the turning point of history, the more entrepreneurs have to bear. We do these things not to win applause, not to win affirmation, not to win some policy support, but we believe, we like, and we believe that we should communicate with the world with a vision of the future and a strategic perspective, through us My own efforts, let the world become better and better.

Thank you!
