Google eyeing operations in Malaysia

Web search engine giant Google is interested in setting up operations in Malaysia, citing the country’s technology infrastructure and strategic location, newspapers reported on Sunday. Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Google has started discussions with Malaysia’s Multimedia Development on establishing a base in the country.

“They want to make their presence felt in Malaysia. It will be a big boost for our ICT industry,” he told reporters after meeting Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Abdullah said Malaysia ranked as the top users of Google in Southeast Asia, which was another reason why it would make sense to use the country as a base for its operations. In Asia, Google has offices in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.
