Google To Work With Vietnamese Government In Removing Toxic Content

Due to the different laws around the world, companies who wish to operate on a global scale need to be aware of these laws and adhere by them. A good example would be Google who in a report from Reuters, will now be working with the Vietnamese Government in removing “toxic” content from its platform.

Basically content that the government deems to be inappropriate will now be removed, or at least Google will entertain the idea of working with the government in seeing what sort of content can or cannot be removed. This follows a call by the government earlier in the year which pressured local advertising firms to hold off on advertising on platforms such as Facebook and YouTube until this “offensive” content can be dealt with.

In a meeting between Alphabet’s Chairman Eric Schmidt and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, “Mr. Eric Schmidt said (he) will tightly cooperate with Vietnam to remove toxic information violating Vietnamese laws and will consider opening a representative office in the country.”

However Google has stated that they currently have no plans of opening up an office in the country. In a statement made by spokesman Taj Meadows, “We have clear policies for removal requests from governments around the world, and those policies have not changed. We rely on governments to notify us of content that they believe is illegal through official processes, and where appropriate, will restrict it after a thorough review.”
