After he was feared to be “missing” for nearly three months, Chinese billionaire, Alibaba founder Jack Ma has finally made an appearance via a live video meeting on Wednesday.
In a video of the event circulated online, Jack Ma was seen addressing teachers via live stream Wednesday during an annual event he hosts to recognize rural educators.

It can be noted that Ma had not appeared in public since October 24, where he blasted China’s regulatory system in a speech at a Shanghai forum that set him on a collision course with officials, leading to suspension of a $37-billion IPO of Alibaba’s financial affiliate.
