Reuters exclusively reported that Chinese authorities are set to allow Didi Global’s ride-hailing and other apps back on domestic app stores as soon as next week, in another signal that the country’s two-year regulatory crackdown on the technology sector is ending. Reuters reported the lifting of the new user ban and app resumption for its ride-hailing services and other business could take place before the Lunar New Year which begins on January 22. The Reuters news was confirmed in two separate public announcements this week, with Reuters checks today showing Didi’s domestic ride-hailing app returning to some Android app stores. Didi has been awaiting approval to resume new user registrations and downloads of its 25 banned apps in China as a key step to return to normal business since its regulatory troubles started in mid-2021.
