Robin Lee told the local media that Baidu has
initiated a nationwide campaign to construct
websites and optimize web content for
500,000 small and medium enterprises free of
charge. Shen Haoyu, vice president of Baidu said
that SMEs have become an important force for
China's economic development, but quite a number
of them do not have a website or have a very simple
website even though their business has already
expanded to the whole country or even the whole
world. According to Shen, Baidu has built websites
or optimized website content for free for over ten
thousand businesses. Lee disclosed that Baidu will
invest over CNY100 million to provide the free
service and relevant training.
