Alibaba said Monday that its China retail marketplace platforms surpassed 3 trillion yuan, or about $476 billion, in gross merchandise volume with ten days remaining in the company’s fiscal year ending March 31.

“If the platforms we operate were a province, we would rank as the sixth-largest provincial economy in China,” Joe Tsai, executive vice chairman of Alibaba Group, wrote in a blog post on Alibaba’s corporate Web site.

The Chinese company saw a better-than-expected 32 percent spike in revenue for the quarter ended Dec. 31.

As reported earlier this month, the Chinese e-commerce giant secured a $3 billion loan for “general corporate purposes.”
