Now, during the summit held at the Accra International Conference Center, Jack Ma made some very interesting statements in his welcome address. The co-founder of Alibaba Group disclosed that, his visit to Ghana was the most important one of all his trips to Africa.

“This is my fourth trip to Africa and this is the most important trip for me because I have realised that through this trip, I can really do something real for Africa, African entrepreneurs and African young people…” Jack Ma made clear.

He further continued to say that, though the government will be solely responsible for the African Continental Free Trade Agreement scheduled to kickstart in July, business leaders have a major role to play in it.

“Most people see Africa today, they say there is no e-commerce, no logistics, no payment. To me it is so similar… Africa today is like China 15-20 years ago. Because we had nothing. That is the opportunity.” He added.

Jet Li, Jack Ma and Ban Ki Moon are in Ghana, this is what brought them.

Meanwhile, Jack Ma’s flagship entrepreneur program in Africa, The Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative is great news for the continent at it is geared towards supporting African entrepreneurs. Under the initiative, 10 entrepreneurs will be awarded a shared $1M grant over the next 10 years.

Jet Li, Jack Ma and Ban Ki-Moon upon arrival yesterday, paid a courtesy call on the President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo–Addo at the Jubilee house.
