Google says it may end operation in China

GOOGLE said on its official blog that it is considering to stop operating in China and to shut down its offices in China, reported People's Daily online.

The blog entry signed by David Drummond, SVP, Corporate Development and Chief Legal Officer of Google, said the company is not willing to continue filtering search results on its Website as it once agreed to impose on itself when the Chinese-language Website was launched in 2006.

"We will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine," the blog said. "We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down, and potentially our offices in China.

"We want to make clear that this move was driven by our executives in the United States, without the knowledge or involvement of our employees in China," it said.
