Warc published a story on Monday, 7 May 2012 reporting that Baidu was seeking to enhance its presence in Australia. We have since received clarification from Baidu that the source material for this piece was inaccurate.

The story should have reported that China Search International, a search marketing reseller operating in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Macau under trademark licence from Baidu, has opened an office in Sydney.

However, Baidu is not affiliated with, and does not own any stake in, China Search International, and is not itself expanding into Australia. We are pleased to make this correction.
