He spoke in Nailab, the technical incubator in Nairobi, where he held talks with young entrepreneurs.

Ma also is a special adviser for young entrepreneurs and small businesses to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.

"I come here today not to sell Chinese products but to share with you the entrepreneur spirit," Ma said. "What is important is that you should make your dream realized, step by step. Make sure your employees and your clients are happy."

Ma shared his ideas and experiences with the African entrepreneurs and explored opportunities to participate in global trade. He said he aspires to make it easier for young entrepreneurs and small business, particularly in developing countries, to take part in global trade.
