Google Embarks on China Hiring Spree

Despite recent problems leading to many top engineers and execs leaving Google’s China office Google Inc have been on a hiring rampage adding more than 2000 new staff in the first quarter of the year.
Google has lost ground on local search engine Baidu and are hoping the latest recruitment drive will help the company regain its market share.
Although Google got in to problems earlier this year in China after they started to redirect users to their Hong Kong based site and accused the Chinese government of cyber attacks on their servers, they still managed to renew their ICP license in the mainland last month keeping them legal, however it does seem they may have  lost the rights to host Google maps for the mainland.
