China’s ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing announced today a strategic partnership with Taxify, a leading ridesharing company in Europe and Africa.

Under this partnership, Didi will invest in and collaborate with Taxify, according to a company statement. But the firm did not disclose the specific amount involved. Taxify will utilize the funding to expand its presence in core markets in Europe and Africa, the statement noted.
