BREAKING: Alibaba founder Jack Ma resurfaces in Hong Kong after nearly a year’s lying low

Alibaba and Ant Group co-founder Jack Ma has reportedly met with business associates in Hong Kong in the past few days, Reuters reported, a move that comes at a time when the Chinese billionaire has largely kept a low public profile ever since Beijing’s regulatory crackdown on his business empire last year.

Ma is in Hong Kong—where Alibaba is listed—for the first time since last October and he met “a few” business associates over meals last week, Reuters reported, citing unnamed sources.

The previously outspoken billionaire has maintained a low public profile ever since he angered authorities in Beijing last year by criticizing China’s financial regulators in a speech in Shanghai.

Prior to his reported visit to Hong Kong, Ma made a limited number of low-key appearances in mainland China, including a video call with rural teachers in China back in January and a visit to Alibaba’s Hangzhou campus in May.
