Just before Mr. Ma disappeared, 'Financial regulations in China are hindering technological innovation and reforms are needed for economic growth,' said a meeting attended by financial tycoons and government officials. Since he publicly accused the Chinese authorities, the theory that 'Mr. Ma's disappearance was due to the Chinese authorities' also emerged. It was also reported that Mr. Ma disappeared due to a tongue-in-cheek because this statement was said to have triggered the cancellation of the IPO of Ant Group , which operates the electronic payment service 'Alipay' under Alibaba.
However, on January 20, 2021, Mr. Ma broke the silence for about three months and attended an online ceremony for teachers in rural areas held by the self-funded charity 'Jack Ma Public Interest Foundation'. He showed himself up for a short time of about 50 seconds, and released a visit to a school supported by the Jack Ma Public Interest Foundation on January 10.

Mr. Ma did not mention the disappearance issue in the movie, but mainly mentioned philanthropy related to education. Based on his background as an English teacher before the founding of Alibaba Group, he told the 100 award-winning teachers of the foundation that he intends to 'focus more on philanthropy in the future.' In addition, the Alibaba Group acknowledged that the credibility of this movie was genuine.
The news that Mr. Ma has reappeared in public seems to have been good news for investors, with Alibaba's share price skyrocketing 8.5% in the Hong Kong market and 5% in the US market.
