Google’s chief executive, Sunder Pichai, said his company, which left China in 2010 to protest Beijing’s strict censorship policies, would not re-launch its services in the country without “proper conditions.”

Google faced fierce anger last year when it was said the company might have been looking forward to launching the search engine in China, the world’s second-largest economy.

In an interview with CNN, The CEO Google Sander Pichai said the company was not actively working to develop a new Chinese search engine, although it admitted that Google was ignoring China and millions of Internet users. “There are no plans for us to consider re-launching our services in China. ” Pichai said.

“Google is committed to following international laws and regulations, although China does not share Google’s free and open internet value, but reaching more users” is always a set of ongoing conversations with Google. ”

Pichai said Google would need “appropriate conditions” for restarting in China, and that the internet without censorship was “an important condition” for making this decision, but declined to exchange further details. “I do not want to speculate on a default position. You know, we do not spend time in that. ”

China has long been a dilemma for technology companies, which are attracted to the vast user base and the thriving online shopping market. The CNN report said human rights abuses and tightening the ruling Communist Party’s authority on freedom of expression and information forced companies to face ethical issues.
