GOOGLE'S CHIEF EXECUTIVE, Eric Schmidt announced yesterday that the company remains committed to its operations in China and is in ongoing talks with the Chinese government.
Off the back of posting robust revenue growth in the final quarter of last year, Schmidt tackled the Chinese situation head on in an Investor Relations Q409 earnings question and answer session.
"Our business in China is today unchanged. We have made a strong statement that we wish to remain in China, we like the Chinese people, we like the Chinese employees, we like the business opportunities there," he said.
However, while not quite toeing the red party line, Schmidt continued, "We continue to follow their laws, we continue to offer censored results but at a reasonable short time from now we'll be making some changes there."
He added, "We'd like to do that on somewhat different terms than we have but we remain quite committed to being there." µ
