PDD, the owner of budget shopping apps Temu and Pinduoduo, has changed its offshore jurisdictions and principal executive offices to Dublin, according to its corporate filings to the US securities regulator the SEC. The adjustment comes as the company pushes hard for its international commerce business Temu, which is already available in ten countries after first launching in the US last September. A PDD spokesperson told Chinese media outlet Caixin that the Dublin office was established out of the need for European operations and compliance, while emphasizing that the company’s Shanghai operation remains PDD’s head office. Pinduoduo and Temu recently deleted mentions of each other in the “About Us” sections of their official websites, a move regarded as Temu downplaying its connection with its Chinese sibling.
