"U.S. internet companies are generally very, very dominant (in Europe). For the search market, Google has a very high market share in Europe; higher than what they have in the U.S., (so) I think European countries are frustrated that they don't have enough number of choices. That actually creates opportunities for companies like us," Baidu CEO Robin Li told CNBC on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hangzhou.
"In terms of technology, at least in the past, it's pretty much U.S. companies dominating everything. Now, Chinese internet companies are coming up and we will be able to provide viable alternatives," he said.
He added Chinese companies are often innovative in solving problems that come up in China and can take that technology overseas.
