Alibaba Founder Jack Ma to Attend Vietnam E-Payment Forum in Hanoi

Eccentric billionaire and Alibaba founder Jack Ma will attend Vietnam’s E-Payment Forum in Hanoi next month.

According to Vietnam News, the executive chairman of the e-commerce giant is expected to speak on November 6, joining government leaders, experts and business owners to discuss his experience turning Alibaba into a multi-billion-dollar company as well as general discussions on e-commerce and mobile payment.

Ma’s real-time net worth comes in at US$39.9 billion, making him the third-richest person in China, reports Forbes. The 53-year-old entrepreneur is a former English teacher who enjoys martial arts, owns a vineyard in France, and now devotes much of his time to social causes.
