Jack Ma, board chairman of the Chinese ecommerce giant Alibaba, reiterated the importance of Laiwang for the whole group in an internal email to all staff. The letter comes shortly afterwards Lu Zhaoxi, CEO of the company, announced an ALL IN strategy for wireless Internet sector, which takes Laiwang as a breakthrough point.
