The CEO of Google and Alphabet  Sundar Pichai announced that the technology company plans to invest 7 billion dollars to expand its network of offices in the United States, which would create 10,000 new jobs in the country.

The largest investment would go to California, where the technology company would invest a billion dollars. However, this action would include the extension of the technology company in 19 other US states, according to Pichai.
