Alibaba's Jack Ma says can't meet promise to create 1 million US jobs
Updated : September 20, 2018 06:57 AM IST
Ma had met US President Donald Trump two years ago and laid out the Chinese e-commerce giant's plan to bring one million small US businesses onto its platform to sell to Chinese consumers over the next five years.
Ma said on Tuesday that trade tensions between the United States and China could last for two decades and would be "a mess" for all parties involved.
Trump on Monday imposed 10 percent tariffs on about $200 billion worth of imports from China, and threatened duties on about $267 billion more if China retaliated against the US action.
