SHANGHAI -- Alibaba Group Holding founder Jack Ma has left China for his first overseas trip in more than a year, after his near-disappearance from the public eye in late 2020.

Ma is visiting Spain on an agricultural "study tour," the Alibaba-owned South China Morning Post reported Tuesday. He traveled to Hong Kong shortly before that to spend time with family, the newspaper said.
