Chinese authorities have renewed Google’s Internet Content Provider (ICP) licence to operate a search page in China, Reuters reports citing a Google spokeswoman. China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also confirmed the licence renewal. The company’s subsidiary Guxiang was included in a list of more than 200 companies that had their licenses renewed, which was posted on the ministry’s website. Google said last week that it would stop automatically rerouting users to its uncensored Hong Kong-based search page Google.com.hk as Chinese authorities had indicated it would not renew its ICP license if it continued to do so. Google warned in January it might quit the country, saying it would not provide the censored search results that China requires. In March, Google began to redirect visitors to its China website to a search site in Hong Kong that provided uncensored results.
