It was recently announced that the Chinese giant Didi Gobal Inc has decided to suspend its launch in the UK and Europe.
Indeed, the company stated that it would be reporting the launch plans for at least a year following the backlash over data privacy in China. It also stopped all hiring in Britain and employees working on the planned launches were told that they would be facing possible redundancy.
The organization declared that it was currently exploring new markets, liaising with relevant stakeholders before introducing its services to a new country. As for now, it was reported that Didi is under a cybersecurity review as China is under scrutiny regarding its privacy and data security rules.
