Uber Tech­nolo­gies hits road­block in Chongqing

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

Uber Tech­nolo­gies Inc Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Travis Kalan­ick was in­dicted in South Korea and Chongqing, China’s largest city, pledged to crack down on its ser­vice in the lat­est in­stances of gov­ern­ment scru­tiny of the company. The south­west­ern city said it will “strike harder” at those who op­er­ate il­le­gal trans­porta­tion ser­vices us­ing car­book­ing soft­ware such as Uber, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment posted on the web­site of the trans­porta­tion com­mis­sion. The dec­la­ra­tion fol­lows a re­port by the of­fi­cial Chi­naNews Ser­vice last week that lawen­force­ment of­fi­cials had raided a site used by the company to train new­drivers. Uber is “ac­tively com­mu­ni­cat­ing and seek­ing clar­i­fi­ca­tion” from the mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment, it said in an e-mailed state­ment.
