3,000 jobs to be created by google outside the US

Google has set out plans to create more jobs for many. The high tech company is  "committed" to the UK and wants to extend its London headquarters at King's Cross thus creating up to 3,000 new jobs.

The chief executive Sundar Pichai made this astounding remark  on his first visit to the UK as the technology giant's chief executive.He reiterated that  Google plans to build a new 10-storey, 650,000 square foot complex alongside its new complex in Pancras Square.

It will be the first wholly owned and designed Google building outside of the US.

Mr Pichai, in announcing the plans, said: "Here in the UK, it's clear to me that computer science has a great future with the talent, educational institutions, and passion for innovation we see all around us.
"We are committed to the UK and excited to continue our investment in our new King's Cross campus."

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan called the announcement a "vote of confidence" in the city and expressed gratitude also welcoming Google's commitment to London.

Google was recently criticised during he elections in the US when its search engine was also allegedly sent a misleading and 'fake news', including a story that suggested President-elect Donald Trump had won the popular vote against Hillary Clinton , despite votes still being counted in some states.

Google apologised, and Mr Pichai reiterated that the firm "does not have all the answers" but will play a role in "addressing these challenges"
