The meeting was so secret that it wasn’t even listed in the president’s public schedule. An Alibaba representative confirmed that there was a closed-door meeting, but declined to reveal the nature of the meeting aside from the fact that they had lunch together.
When approached by reporters on the way out, Ma simply said that his meeting with Obama was “very good.”
