Uber threw in the towel at the killing ride-hailing wars in China, but that does not mean Uber is out, especially on a global level, says Andy Mok, managing Director at Red Pagoda Resources, especially on a global level, he tells Bloomberg. “They want to be the Cisco of the physical world.”

Bloomberg:

By shedding its losses in China, the move may clear Uber’s path to an eventual initial public offering. And as part of its deal, Kalanick joins Didi’s board — literally gaining a seat at the table as the effort to dominate the world’s largest ride-sharing arena unfolds.

So never count Uber out, at least on a global level, said Andy Mok, Managing Director at Red Pagoda Resources in Beijing.

“They want to be a Cisco of the physical world, the network that routes physical people and objects,” said Mok. “In a way, this frees up space for more technology development.”
