“For Baidu, we choose not to come to the U.S. market first because this is a market that is very different from developing countries,” said Robin Li, chief executive officer of Baidu Inc. “For a company to be successful internationally, they don’t need to be successful in the U.S. The U.S. is just one part of the world.”
