Didi plans to expand this year, the company said on Thursday, as the regulatory crackdown on the Chinese ride-hailing giant eases.

The Beijing-headquartered company said in an online statement that it plans to work with partners in 2023 to launch more diversified products and services. It also said it plans to cover more cities with its services.

Didi said it is seeing a “rapid recovery in travel and consumption” across China and in recent months the number of push orders has increased. China scrapped its strict “zero-Covid” policy in December aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus through measures including mass testing and lockdowns.
