With global e-commerce continuing to grow at eye-watering levels, the increase in reports of security breaches and data leaks are a concern for policy-makers around the world.

So what steps are needed to keep the internet economy on a stable footing and allow for future growth?

Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma discussed these issues in the session “Future Proofing the Internet Economy” at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2015.

Here are a selection of his best quotes from the session.

“We should govern the internet like a zoo”

“We should have an e-WTO for the internet age”

“We want to make the internet the positive power and energy for the future”

“Nobody is going to help you if you don’t help yourself”

“Small businesses don’t benefit from globalisation”

“We should give small businesses tax-free imports and create millions of jobs”
