Google plans £1bn investment in ‘incredible’ Britain

Technology company Google is to build a headquarters building in King’s Cross, London, and create up to 3,000 jobs by 2020, the company’s chief executive Sundar Pichai has announced.

In an article published by the BBC on 15 November, Pichai is quoted as saying that the UK is an attractive place to do business despite Brexit. But he said that open borders and free movement for skilled migrants were “absolutely” important to the success of technology companies in the UK.

“The innovation we see here, the talent we have available here and how on the cutting edge of technology we are able to be here makes it an incredible place for us to invest,” Pichai is quoted as saying.
