Microsoft and Baidu join forces

Microsoft will provide English-language search results for China’s biggest search engine Baidu within the year.

It’s an important deal for both companies, following global leader Google’s withdrawal from the vastly populated country last year.

According to China Daily Zhang Dongchen – Baidu assistant president – said about ten million English-language searches are made on Baidu every day, mainly by professionals and university students in China.
