Beijing's master plan behind China's tech crackdown

Hong Kong (CNN Business)Didi said Friday that it would “immediately” start delisting from the New York Stock Exchange and instead prepare to sell shares in Hong Kong, just months after its disastrous IPO.

“After a careful study, the company will start delisting on the New York Stock Exchange immediately, and start preparations for listing in Hong Kong,” the Chinese ride-hailing firm wrote Friday on its verified account on Weibo, a popular Twitter-like platform in the country.
In a separate, English-language statement, the company said that its board of directors has authorized the company to file for delisting in New York, while ensuring that its shares “will be convertible into freely tradable shares of the company on another internationally recognized stock exchange.”

    The board has also granted permission for Didi to list its shares in Hong Kong, the statement added.

      This is a developing story and will be updated.

      Malaysia detects first case of Omicron Covid-19 variant

      KUALA LUMPUR (REUTERS) – Malaysia has detected the country’s first case of the Omicron coronavirus variant, health minister Khairy Jamaluddin said on Friday (Dec 3).

      It was detected in a foreign student from South Africa who arrived in Malaysia via Singapore on Nov 19, he said.

      The student is currently under quarantine along with five others who were on a bus together from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh, Perak, news portal Malaysiakini reported.

      Mr Khairy said the student entered Malaysia before the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared Omicron a variant of concern.

      Kia’s names its three-row model Carens

      The Kia Carens name has been confirmed for its upcoming 7-seater, which is set to be revealed on December 16. Internally known as the KY, Kia’s fourth model for the Indian market is expected to share its underpinnings with the Seltos, but with a longer wheelbase to accommodate a third row of seats.

      The name Carens is not new for Kia, as the brand has had a people mover with the same name on sale overseas. The name will see a comeback on this all-new model, which will be sold in India and overseas. Kia has been testing its upcoming three-row model for a while now, with images of test mules doing the rounds of the internet. These images reveal a model with a design in line with the Seltos but with a larger glasshouse and a longer wheelbase. The Carens is set to be longer than the Seltos, with dimensions expected to be similar to the Hyundai Alcazar.

      A teaser video of the exterior also gives a glimpse of the car’s profile, with details such as the unique design of the LED daytime running lights, tail-lamps with a triangular light-guide pattern, and what looks to be a light bar running along the width of the tailgate. Inside, similar to the Sonet and Seltos, the Carens dashboard will be crowned with a high-set touchscreen flanked by a digital instrument cluster that is similar to the one in the Hyundai i20.

      While engine details will only be confirmed following the debut, the Carens is expected to use the same 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines as the Seltos. Gearbox options too are expected to be shared.
