Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA) reported a 22% increase in its revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 backed by solid performance of its domestic retail businesses as well as robust cloud computing revenue growth. This is despite a challenging quarter due to reduced economic activities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic in China.
