“We’re definitely going global,” Didi Chuxing president Jean Liu said Thursday at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit, in conversation with Alibaba president Michael Evans. “If there are no existing local players, we’ll go there by ourselves. We will play a global game.”

In May, Apple poured $1 billion into Didi. But Liu side-stepped a question about the significance of Apple’s investment, responding by talking about Siri integration in Didi rides. 

Last year, Didi entered into a global ride-hailing alliance with Grab, the Indian company Ola, and Lyft, whose relationship with Didi appears more complicated following the Uber China deal. 

Just days after Didi's merger with Uber China was announced, Didi partnered with Softbank to lead a massive $600 million investment round in Grab, Uber’s most powerful rival in Southeast Asia.
