Google Refuses to Answer Senators' Questions About China Plans

Google refused to answer specific questions from U.S. senators about plans for China, saying it’s too early to know exactly what the company’s path forward in the country will be. Google has always been interested in expanding its presence in China but it’s "unclear" if the company will restart a search engine there, Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai said in an Aug. 31 letter to six senators, including Virginia Democrat Mark Warner, whose office provided Bloomberg News with the letter.
