DiDi, a Chinese transportation technology platform, has officially launched its services in Middle East and will begin providing Waslny, Waslny Plus and Didi Express services in Alexandria on September 13, according to a statement.
According to a CNBC report, Uber owns a 12% stake in China’s Didi, making it the second largest investor in the company after SoftBank.
The entry of the Chinese intelligent transport giant should increase competition in the Egyptian market, especially after the recent entry of the Russian application, InDriver, which limits control of Uber after the acquisition of Careem.
Didi said it will offer a welcome package worth £ 150 which includes discount coupons for new users and will also offer free travel worth £ 25 every Thursday for 4 weeks to its customers.
