HANGZHOU – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with global business-to-business markeplace giant Ali Baba’s CEO Jack Ma on Saturday to discuss with him the best wholesale deal to procure letters to be produced in court.
“I obviously want a bespoke solution, which is what I did back when I had the Qatar letter written,” the prime minister said to Jack Ma. “But that is costly, it is going to cost me an arm, leg and lots of Houbara Bustard wings.”
“So I think it would be better to have a wholesale rate, specially since I am going to be needing them so much in the near future,” he said. “But there are so many sellers, each one of them promising to be better than the last. Yes, I knew there are a lot of billionaires in China that can testify to having given me money, but I really didn’t know there were so many of them.”
“I really want the best deal here. That doesn’t necessarily mean the lowest cost but the best quality for low cost. And sustainability and reliability.”
“Don’t worry about it,” said Jack Ma. “We have orders of such scale handled.”
