Alibaba to give e-commerce class for Rwandan students

(MENAFN) China's e-commerce giant Alibaba will launch an student program this September to register students from Rwanda, which is establishing a knowledge-based economy.

The Alibaba Business School said its "International Business Cross-border eCommerce" class will sign up 30 students this year, who will spend four years in Hangzhou, where Alibaba is based, studying subjects including the Internet, international trade and cross-border e-commerce.

The project is a major part of the deal signed last year between the Rwandan government and Alibaba to set up the Electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP).

The eWTP initiative was introduced by Jack Ma, executive chairman of Alibaba, in 2016, to promote public-private dialogue to improve policy and business environment to allow small and medium-sized enterprises to participate in cross-border electronic trade.
