Growing fervently in popularity, the ride-sharing transportation service Uber has reached far beyond its San Francisco beginnings and even its American home to international routes. In China, Uber routinely serves individuals eager for inexpensive rides that rival cab fares. In fact, half of the top 10 busiest cities can be discovered in China, according to booked trips within the app. Unfortunately, however, SVP of Business Emil Michael notes that WeChat, a popular messaging app in the country, has pulled the plug on featuring Uber thanks to its owner Tenchant. Rather, the brand favors another car-booking app despite Uber’s significant spending in China. The rival transportation app is actually spending significantly more and stealing necessary ad space from companies such as Uber, which Emil Michael notes is only harming the company from doing business in the country -- a place which truly wants Uber and its services.
