Google CEO confirms China search engine plans

Google CEO Sundar Pichai publicly acknowledged on Oct 15 about the company’s plans to re-enter the Chinese market with a censored search app, which could "serve well over 99 percent of queries."

Speaking at the Wired’s 25th anniversary summit in San Francisco, Pichai confirmed the early stage efforts in experimenting how such a product could work through blacklisting search results on issues deemed sensitive by the Chinese government.

Pichai said on stage, in any country that Google operates, it always balances between its value of free access to information and expression, with obeying the local laws.
