Microsoft China Offices Raided By Government Officials, Investigation Reasons Are Unknown

Microsoft is not having a good time in China in the recent months. Following the ban of Windows 8 and Office in some government offices, Microsoft offices in China were raided today by Chinese government officials for unknown reasons. China’s State Administration for Industry & Commerce made the visits to Microsoft offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu.

Microsoft provided the following statement to the media regarding these raids,

“We aim to build products that deliver the features, security and reliability customers expect and we’re happy to answer the government’s questions,”

Recently, Chinese government agencies warned US tech companies to stop helping US government in stealing Chinese government data. One good news for Microsoft China is that JD.com has started taking pre-orders for Xbox One today.
