Baidu CEO Robin Li told the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco yesterday that his company is ready to expand to other countries beyond China and Japan.
The Financial Times reported Baidu "is planning to expand into new countries and offer more languages to users beyond the dominant Chinese search engine's two-year-old foray in Japan".
Beyond the company's geographical ambitions, Li hoped to see "a box appear instantly on any internet-connected device that could offer not only search but the ability to publish to the web and to launch applications. He said the company was working on the technology to do just that."
