Couple of highlights:
- This year's expansion push will be Beijing, Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan;
- In Taiwan will be selling inventory through Taiwanese player Eztravel. [BOOT note - EzTravel is part owned by Ctrip - who in turn used to be, but are no longer, part owned by Rakuten. But back in 2007 Rakuten sold out of Ctrip and in 2008 announced further plans for pushing into China ; and
- To enter the US market through setting up an office in Hawaii "next month". [BOOT note - we presume this is for inbound only].
