Chinese Officials Uncertain Whether Google Will Leave China

Xinhua, the official Chinese news agency reported  January 13, 2010, that, “An official with China's State Council Information Office Wednesday [January 13, 2010] said Chinese Internet authorities were seeking more information on Google's statement that it could quit China. See “Chinese gov't seeking clarity, expert casts doubt on Google intentions.”

“The high-ranking official, who requested anonymity, made the remarks in a phone interview with Xinhua, a day after Google's corporate development and chief legal officer, David Drummond, posted a statement Tuesday [January 12, 2010]on the company's official blog, saying it was to "review the feasibility of our business operations in China," according to the report.

"’It is still hard to say whether Google will quit China or not. Nobody knows,’ the official said,” according to Xinhua.

Xinhua said, “Google's possible retreat from China has prompted the company's 700 China staff to fear for their jobs.”
