Google to Act on China
Google Inc. (GOOG) is expected to announce its next steps in China this week, according to a person briefed on the matter.
The details of the Internet company’s plan, reached after talks with Chinese officials failed to make progress, remain unclear. The person briefed on the matter said the announcement could come as soon as Monday.
A Google spokeswoman declined to comment.
The announcement could end months of suspense over the fate of Google’s Chinese business, which has been in jeopardy since January, when the company said it would stop censoring its search results after it was hit by a cyber attack it traced to China. Google said at the time it was increasingly troubled by China’s attempts to limit free speech.
