Chinese regulators are reportedly in the final stages of their probe into Didi, with plans to lift the ride-hailing giant’s year-long ban on registering new users as early as this week, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal on Monday. The report, citing people familiar with the matter, shows that Beijing is easing its crackdown on the country’s tech sector to boost the economy battered by strict Covid-19 control measures. The investigation into Didi by China’s internet watchdog over alleged cybersecurity risks of its US IPO has been ongoing since last July. The company’s shares were up 24.3% to $2.3 on Monday.
