Amid expansion, Google opens new office in Berlin

The American tech-giant Google has started a new office in Berlin, which it believes to offer it the space to expand in the German Capital, Berlin.

On Tuesday, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai said that the space means the company could more than a double the number of employees in Berlin to 300. Currently, Google offers employment to around 1400 people in Germany.

Mr. Pichai further said, “the city has long been a capital of culture and media. Now it’s also home to a fast-growing startup scene and an engine for innovation.”

In Europe, Google has faced regulatory headwinds and was fined EUR 50 million ($57 million) on Monday and in France over accused violations of European data privacy rules.

Central Europe’s Vice President of Google, Philipp Justus did not directly addressed the fine but said that the tech giant committed to clarity and transparency on what data is collected and how it is used.
