06:09 PM February 23, 2018

Welcome to Alibaba. Globe leaders take time off at the Alibaba headquarters in Hangzhou, China. 

Globe Telecom Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala together with Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu led the company’s 120 key executives in doing extensive immersions at Alipay, Alibaba and Huawei Technologies last January 2018 at Hangzhou, China. The immersions provided unique opportunities for Globe to understand new digital technology developments, holistic market applications of financial technology, scaling up e-Commerce play and 5G technologies.

Hangzhou is the capital city of Zheijang Province in east China, and an emerging technology hub. Hangzhou serves as the headquarters for the Alibaba group, the world’s largest retail e-commerce company, which introduced cashless payment to the city. Hangzhou is now considered by many of its citizens as a cashless society.
