Chinese firm partners with African countries to advance tech

Baidu, a Chinese multinational tech company specializing in internet-related services, products and artificial intelligence (AI), said it would partner with African countries interested in advancing technologies.

Mr. Gon Lei, head of public communications for Baidu companies based in China, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Beijing.

The program included 90 journalists from 67 countries under the auspices of the China-Africa Press Center (CAPC) 2022 Program, organized by the China Public Diplomacy Association (CPDA).

Gon said, “Maybe in the future we will have investment policies in African countries, but not yet; at present, we are not ready to foster cooperation in Africa, maybe in the future.

“Gradually we can make plans, reach some countries first and then move to other continents like America.

“It is not our project at the moment, as we do not have a plan, but we welcome African countries and governments to contact us to seek our cooperation on technological advancements in the future.

Baidu, a company headquartered in China, has strategic departments engaged in expanding technology business operations and investments not only in Africa, but also in Latin America and Europe.

He said the organization was established in January 2000 by Robin Li and Eric Xu, to simplify the complicated world through technology.

He described Baidu as the world’s second largest search engine, saying the organization had become the first Chinese company to be included in the NASDAQ-100 index.

He also said that it has become the first Chinese company to join the American IT ethics consortium Partnership on AI.

NAN reports that the curriculum also included cultural activities centered on experiencing traditional Chinese “Tai Chi” culture.
