The global online event was seen as an opportunity to discuss how the public sector, private sector and civil society can work together to realize the potential of digital technologies for advancing human well-being, while mitigating the risks.
Mr Ma, who is the executive chairman of Alibaba group and co-chair on the UN High Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, said that in the digital age, the bigger you are, the bigger responsibility you should have.
Mr Ma said that his job has been “chief education officer,” as he has been engaged in educating customers and government officers, and trying to convince them to keep abreast with technology development.
“If you do not pay attention to privacy, if you do not pay attention to data security, if you do not pay attention to human rights, if you do not pay attention to the interest of society, you might disappear very quickly,” Mr Ma said.
