China's ride-hailing giant Didi to launch in Australia

China's ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing is set to launch in Melbourne, Australia, from 25 June as it continues its international expansion. Didi is the world's largest ride-hailing app and is best known for driving Uber off the streets in China. Didi says the service it will offer in Melbourne will be its core ride-sharing arm, Didi Express. "What I can say is that Melbourne drivers are continuing to respond exceptionally well to the product we are offering... in fact, nearly 100 drivers attended a driver registration day on Wednesday," a Didi spokesperson in Australia told the BBC. The firm's app can be downloaded in Australia from Friday 15 June, and riders will be able to receive 50% off their trip from 25 June until the end of July, the firm said. Didi claims to have some 550 million users across its app-based transport services, which include premier taxis, express cars and food delivery.
