Still no settlement between Google and Beijing


Amid the ongoing speculation, its being claimed a group of advertisers has written to Google demanding to know what plans to do in China.

It follows reports that the internet company intends to close its Beijing search operation, after a sophisticated hacking from inside China.

Google has only said it is no longer prepared to offer a censored search engine.

while there has been no sign of a compromise from China’s internet regulator who said, “I hope that Google will abide by and respect the Chinese government’s laws and regulations. But if you betray these, it means you are unfriendly, irresponsible, and you will have to pay the consequences.”

With 384 million people online, China is the world’s biggest Internet market.

Google has about a third of the country’s search market, with 60 percent run by a Chinese company.

Users have warned the loss of a competitor could slow the industry’s development.
