Chinese ride-sharing giant Didi picks Australia for first Western foray

Chinese ride-sharing giant Didi picks Australia for first Western foraySYDNEY/SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Didi Chuxing Technology Co Ltd, the Chinese ride-sharing company that bought the mainland operations of Uber Technologies Inc, will begin offering its service this month in Australia, its first foray in a Western-style country. The scheduled June 25 launch in Australia’s second biggest city Melbourne sets Didi up for a showdown with the U.S. rival it bought out in China in exchange for a stake. Didi started expanding outside Asia in Mexico earlier this year, and has said globalisation is a core strategy.
