Alphabet has registered its new company in China for its autonomous car division Waymo, writes Reuters.
The company, which is the sole owner of Google's parent company, is called Huimo Business Consulting (Shanghai) Co. and has a capital of $ 509,165.
The scope of the company includes business and logistic consultancy, design and testing of self-managing cars and parts. Kevin Bradley Vossen was appointed CEO of the company.
On Friday Friday, Waymo confirmed their accession to China a few months ago, stating that they have already been recruited into the new company.
Earlier this year, China granted a license to car manufacturers to test autonomous cars on the roads of the country. One of the first companies that already do such tests is SAIC Motor Corp Ltd and NIO.
