In December 2012 Ken Forrest and Ella Liu travelled the 250 km from Shanghai South railway station to the Hanzhou based offices of alibaba – the journey on high speed train took less than 1 hour! They were met by Kathy Hu and Roy Huang of alibaba and given a tour of the impressive HQ facilities of this rapidly expanding Chinese business.
