Warning! As of 20 September 2021, the EU lobby register has changed format. Temporarily, the register is no longer providing daily data updates of all lobby data which means that the figures on LobbyFacts cannot currently be kept up-to-date. If, for example, you see a company, trade association, or lobby consultancy with "no figure available" for EU lobby costs, open the data card, and click the link to the EU lobby register where you will find the updated registration including EU lobby costs declaration. Regretably, under the lobby register format, NGOs and think tanks are no longer required to provide a figure for EU lobby costs. We will update LobbyFacts with the new data as soon as possible.
WARNING: As this organisation lists one or more EP accredited lobbyists, it is highly improbable that its lobbying costs are lower than €10,000.
WARNING: The lobbying costs declared by this organisation are extraordinarily high and may therefore have been over-declared.
No figure available
Lobbyists declared: 1.25 FTE (3)
WARNING: The number of full time equivalent lobbyists declared by this organisation are extraordinarily high and may therefore have been over-declared.

Lobbyists with EP accreditation
The above number reflects Alibaba employees who are engaged in the activities described under heading 9. However, we have excluded from this figure Alibaba executive officers who spend a de minimis percentage of their time in covered activities, such as occasional meeting attendance.
In addition, Alibaba employs the service of a public affairs firm, and a consulting firm, whose staff provides a limited amount of support for those activities, approximately equivalent to a .5 FTE. Those external resources are also not included in the figure above.
