At the end of the interview he even hence that they will be willing to take on these retail giants on the international stage in the very near future.
One of the things that Richard Liu is most proud of is his ability to keep JD.com competitive. Early on in his career, he learned how important it was to remain invested in his business.

While this was very long ago and when Richard Liu was in college, he still uses it as a lesson for his future business decisions. He tells David Rubenstein that he wants to always remain invested in his business. David Rubenstein asked him where JD.com came from. Initially, JD.com was Jingdong Mall. Jingdong Mall was Richard Liu Qiangdong’s second attempt to start a business. With this business, he took everything that he learned from his restaurant and applied it. Jingdong Mall did much better. He eventually moved the business to the web when SARS became a major issue for Chinese citizens.
Today, there is a lot for Richard Liu Qiangdong to remain thankful for. He has expanded his business to heights that he could once only dream of. This has enabled him to adequately care for his family and the Chinese community.
