Alibaba executive chairman Jack Ma, a former teacher, is planning to make a return to the education sector, China Press reported.

He was quoted as saying that he did not rule out the possibility.

"Education can leave a very deep impact," he said, adding that a forum on education on Sept 5 brought great benefit.

He said the participants shared their knowledge with other teachers who then "spread it out to thousands of students".

"When I was starting Alibaba, education helped me a lot," he said.

Ma said he liked to give talks and attend events.

"I will only attend events held by people who had helped me as I want to return the favour, and the other is for functions I pledged to attend," he said.
