Baidu is about to outsource its financial news channel to
Hexun.com, one of the top-ranking financial news portals
in China, under an agreement signed by the two parties.
Hexun.com has reportedly prepared for taking over the
job by setting up 30 booths for Baidu employees.
Baidu's financial news channel was founded in October 2007
after it gained a news reporting license at the end of 2006.
