New Retail Born in China Going Global : How Chinese Tech Giants Are Changing Global Commerce


A behind the scenes look at how, in only a few short years, Alibaba CEO Jack Ma's vision of "The New Retail", where 800 million consumers take for granted a world of convenience unimagined anywhere else, has become a reality. This complete integration of online, offline, technology and entertainment has changed the rules of commerce forever.
