London: Google is willing to pay more tax globally, Sundar Pichai, the chief executive officer of the largest business unit of Alphabet Inc., said on Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“We are happy to pay more tax, whatever the world agrees to," Pichai said. But he said the question was where Google should pay it.

Critics have accused large US technology companies like Google of paying too little tax outside their home country, despite deriving a large portion of their revenue from other nations.

Pichai said that as Google hired more engineers globally—for instance, in France, where Google it said this week that it would add more engineering and research staff—it would equalize the distribution of its tax payments across countries.
