澎湃News reporter Zhou Ling Comprehensive report
Zhang Huafeng, deputy head of the delegation and a member of the financial services sector, quoted Ma Yun as saying after the meeting that Ma Yun liked Hong Kong very much. He also had a lot of investments in Hong Kong, saying that "it seems to be a pity that Alibaba is not listed in Hong Kong." Zhang Huafeng asked Ma Yun whether he would consider listing in Hong Kong. The other party responded: "I hope to be listed in Hong Kong." "
Alibaba had stated in its early years that Hong Kong was the preferred location for Ali listing. However, due to the different ownership structure of the Group, it did not meet the listing rules of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in the same year. In September 2014, it chose to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Today, the Hong Kong capital market has been open to accept the same rights structure.MilletCompanies such as the US and the "shares with different rights" have been listed in Hong Kong, and there is no biggest policy obstacle for Ali to return.
