Google to headquarter in Belgium

The Francophone financial daily "L'Echo de la Bourse" reports that the American-owned internet search engine Google is investing 250 million euros in its site at Baudour, near Mons, in Hainaut province.
Google first opened its offices at Baudour in 2005. The company currently employs five people there.
Much of the work for Google's Belgian site is still done in the Netherlands. Google now wants the site to become its new European business centre. The investment should create around 120 jobs in an area of high unemployment. The company has an estimated value of 48.8 billion euros.
