Their governments may be at loggerheads, but it hasn’t stopped China’s and the US’s Walmart investing half-a-billion dollars in a new joint-venture, according to The South China Morning Post. The money is earmarked for logistics services company Dada-JD Daojia, comprising two businesses, in which both parties have already invested heavily. The first is a network of 5m delivery people, while the second supplies one-hour delivery services for groceries and other items. Despite already being a part-owner, it appears Walmart is responsible for the bulk of the additional investment, pouring in some $320m, adding to its initial $50m investment made in 2016.
