This has created a solid foundation for their Japanese branch. Furthermore, Idei Nobuyuki, the ex-chairman of the Sony Group, was appointed as the company's independent director, thus showcasing their great ambitions regarding the Japanese market.

Speaking of future developments, Robin Li said that Baidu's Japanese branch would focus on developing local customer-targeted search products and would make preliminary probes into business modes for Japanese-language search engines.
