• Good afternoon everyone.
  • It’s my great honor to be invited.
  • I’ve been looking forward to this opportunity to communicate with young people,
  • entrepreneurs, students for a long time.
  • Thanks for Prime Minister invitation. He said Jack please come to Vietnam,
  • spend sometimes with the young people, share your experience of doing business.
  • So, I came 2 nights ago.
  • In the evening, I walked around the streets in Hanoi.
  • I’m very inspired because there are so many young people in this country.
  • And they will... they always have great smile,
  • energetic, and they’re all playing all kinds of games on the street.
  • I was wondering why people in Vietnam are so happy.
  • One of the reasons I think is because you are very young
  • Young people
  • but the great thing is the young people is if they are ahppy for their future,
  • if they are optimistic for the future,
  • and that means they are optimistic for their country.
  • So today I come here to share some of my ideas how to do business.
  • Like most people here,
  • I was not born in a rich family.
  • I don’t have rich father,
  • I don’t have a powerful uncle
  • and i don’t have anything.
  • I failed many many times
  • in school, in finding jobs.
  • But I think this is all the great experience I have.
  • Because I failed,
  • I learn things from the mistakes, I learn things from my failure.
  • So even today,
  • Alibaba is very big,
  • but we still believe there are a lot of mistakes, a lot of failures ahead of us.
  • When we meet this kind of failure, mistakes, I never worry
  • because I know life is full of mistakes.
  • But if there’s no people to help you, don’t worry because no people help you - this is very natural.
  • People help you - this is unnatural
  • because there’s no reason why people should help you.
  • I think if you want to open a right business, a good business,
  • you should pick up a right time with the right people.
  • Right time. I think today the whole world for doing business is a right time.
  • We are at the time of the third technology revolution.
  • Every technology revolution takes out of 50 years.
  • So internet has just a past 20 years. The next 30 years,
  • those people who make full use of the internet in their business,
  • in their life, those people will be successful.
  • I feel
  • that next 30 years, the artificial intelligence, next 30 years, many things will change
  • especially in the business community.
  • Right? For example,
  • the big old way we do business in the past 100 years is called B2C.
  • In the future, it’s C2B - “Consumers-to-Business”
  • The last century, this is called the IT technology.
  • This century is called data technology. It's called the DT technology
  • And last century,
  • because of globalization only helped 20% of the developing countries,
  • globalization only helped 20% of the big companies.
  • This century, the business is going to focus on 80% of the small business.
  • This century, because of new technology, we have to rely a lot on young people.
  • So I think those countries, if they have a lot of young people,
  • if they rely on young people,
  • if they really give the trust on young people,
  • those are the countries which have great hope.
  • Every country I go, I talk to the government: please pay special attention to the following, please pay special attention to the next 30 years
  • because the nest 30 years are the most important years in humankind.
  • Please pay attention to those young people who are below 30 years old.
  • Please pay attention to the companies who have fewer than 30 employees.
  • Because small business would be the driver of this century.
  • Last century, big companies
  • big size- big money,
  • these companies will be successful.
  • This century, those companies who were small,
  • more flexible or innovative or creative or constructive
  • these people will be success... these companies will be successful.
