Will Google Leave China On April 10th Forever?
Bloomberg News references reports from the China Business News paper, where they said Google will likely announce their plans to pull out officially on March 22, this Monday. In that announcement, it is expected that Google will say they will be completely out by April 10th.
Peter Lui, formerly Google’s financial controller for the Asia Pacific region, said that if they do pull out, “there is no way Google can ever come back.” He said it would be a “burnt bridge” that could never be repaired.
