The relationship between China and Google has been a rather turbulent one. The search giant was forced to stop work in the region for quite some time, was blocked and eventually restored and now, the relations are somewhat normal between the two. However, now the Chinese authorities have blocked access to Google’s freshly-launched cloud storage service called Google Drive.


The Chinese regime tends to enjoy the export of its products and services to the rest of the world but when companies from the rest of the world try to enter the country, Chinese authorities have often obstructed it, only so that local Chinese companies may not face any competition.

It is nearly the same situation in this case too. Of course the officially stated reason by China would be that services such as Google Drive or Drop box are somehow a security threat (that’s the easiest and most effective excuse) and thus, they can’t be allowed into the country. On the contrary, local cloud storage services such as Baidu’s Wangpan is all right and allowed to be offered in the region. Wangpan is currently offering 25 GB of free online storage.

China needs to understand that opening up can’t be one-sided. Whereas yes, the West in particular has also profited a lot from low-cost Chinese production mode, China is still to adopt a more open culture towards overseas technological companies. It seems to be guarding its own technological companies by resorting to elimination of competition, which is a rather unfair way of blocking access to multiple services for people.

    It is not only Google Drive, but also Google Docs, that seems to be blocked on Internet in China: I have two Google accounts, one for which I switched to Google Drive, the other one for which I remain on Google Docs: both have the same problem, with whatever web browser. I don’t know whether the reason is technical or political or both. Anyone having the same problem with Google Docs (without having switched to Google Drive)?

       Paul Y Gloess Sometimes, I can enter my Google id and password, but then there is always an error message such as (example using Google Chrome on a Mac under Mac OS X Lion):Page Web inaccessible
