Taipei, Sept. 11 (CNA) U.S.-based tech giant Google Inc. said Wednesday that it will set up a data center in Tainan that will be its second data center in Taiwan after its first one started operations in Changhua in 2013.
Google said in a statement that it has purchased land in Tainan in preparation for the establishment of the center after an assessment that picked the city as the location for the investment.
The U.S. search engine said it was very grateful for assistance provided by the Industrial Development Bureau of Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), the Tainan City government, the authorities of the Tainan Technology Industrial Park and Taiwan Power Co. in selecting the location for the center.
No details about the financial terms for the center were immediately available from Google.
