Google has been planning for a long time to emerge on the Chinese market with a search engine specially designed for the Asian country. Now, the giant Internet company confirmed its entry on the Chinese market.
That would mean that Google will be the first substantial Western technology company to operate across China with Beijing’s approval.
And that’s not for nothing, as the Internet censorship in China is a reality in the day-to-day life of the Asian nation’s users. That means that the search engine that Google hopes to launch in this country will have to comply with the laws and regulations imposed by the Chinese government.
Sundar Pichai, Google’s CEO, has finally spoken of the company’s plans to emerge in China, a market of more than 1.3 billion users. Until now, everything we knew about Google’s project for the Chinese market came from rumors and leaks and triggered controversies between the US government and the company.
For Sundar Pichai, the opportunity to enter China is a golden opportunity. If China opens up to the global Internet market, its large population will become potential consumers of companies that are beginning to see their user base stagnating.
Google to emerge on the Chinese market finally – Sundar Pichai confirmed that Google considers that
Google CEO Sundar Pichai affirms, without debating the Chinese censorship of the Internet, that Google in China would satisfy not less than 99% of the Chinese citizens. Google CEO also defines the Chinese market as one that’s “important to explore.”
“We wanted to know what it would be like if Google had a presence in China. It’s still too early, and we don’t know if we can do this in China, but we think it’s important that we explore this market. It’s critical to us considering that it’s a significant market with many users,” Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, said.
Pichai’s statements seem to indicate that the so-called Project Dragonfly is within in its early stages of development, but further internal sources suggest that Google search engine for China will be up and live within the next nine months.
