Didi has been given the green light by the Chinese government to resume registering new users for its ride-hailing app and downloads through app stores after it made a “comprehensive rectification” over the past year, the company announced on Monday. This marks the official end of China’s 18-month investigation into Didi for alleged cybersecurity compliance issues, which began on July 2, 2021, just two days after the ride-hailing giant went public in the US. The company was delisted from the New York Stock Exchange last June and fined $1.2 billion by Chinese regulators a month later. [Didi statement, in Chinese]
