Daniel Alegre, Google's President for Japan and Asia-Pacific, insists that his company is "locally relevant", as it tries to appeal to the different tastes and internet capabilities of the hugely diverse Asian region.
"We don't see ourselves as a Silicon Valley company, we see ourselves as a Japanese company in Japan, a Singaporean company in Singapore," he says.
It signals a shift in the centre of gravity of cyberspace, as Asia becomes the biggest and fastest growing region for the internet.
