Beijing: An uncanny encouragement is made by Jack Ma, the founder and Chairman of e-commerce giant Alibaba to the employees. The key message from Ma in the year to the newly wed employees is to have more children. Jack Ma said “the first KPI of marriage is to have results. There must be products. What is the product? Have children’’.
Jack Ma’s remark comes out in the backdrop of Chinese government easing rules on one -child policy. Owing to the declining labor pool and ageing population China made laxity over the child policy by allowing couples to have more children in 2016. But relieving of the rule would not have made instant result and now the country is campaigning to have more children. China marked a birth rate of 15 million in last year, the lowest rate since 1961.
Asking his employees to follow 669 in their private life the billionaire said “what is 669 to refer to having sex six times in six days”. Earlier Jack Ma’s hailing of 996, Chinese work shift from 9 am to 9 pm, sparked controversy.
