Search engine Google has announced to invest a whopping amount of $7 billion in order to establish new offices and data centres in the next 1 year.
According to the details, Chief Executive (CEO) Google Sundar Pichai has detailed that this investment will help strengthen the US economy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic crisis globally.
Sundar Pichai has stated: “Google wants to be a part of that recovery. That’s why we plan to invest over $7 billion in offices and data centres across the U.S. and create at least 10,000 new full-time Google jobs in the U.S. this year.”
“We project that our $250 million investment fund will help create 24,000 housing units by 2029,” he said.
The latest investment by Google will expand data centres in Nebraska, South Carolina and Texas.
The expansion in its offices includes Atlanta, D.C., Washington, Chicago and New York.
However, the investments would properly create 10,000 new full-time Google jobs, added Pichai.
Google currently employs more than 84,000 staff in the United States (US).
Earlier in 2020, the tech giant had contributed to $426 billion of economic activity in the US, said the CEO.
