At an investor conference at its headquarters in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, Alibaba said it expects to record CNY 6 trillion ($912 billion) in gross merchandise volume (GMV) in fiscal 2020, nearly double CNY 3.09 trillion in fiscal 2016.
Echoing that growth, Ma said Alibaba expects to have 2 billion consumers on its books by 2036, up from 423 million active buyers in 2016.
Addressing concerns about the company's efforts to remove counterfeit products from its online platforms, Ma said Alibaba will do "anything to stop the fake products". The company has been dogged for years by accusations that its shopping platforms were conduits for counterfeiters.
"I promise you guys that counterfeits, fake products, and intellectual property theft - we are more and more confident than ever that we can solve the problem," Ma said.
