MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Google said Thursday it will be opening two new offices in Sao Paolo and Mexico City.

"The online environment in Latin America is changing rapidly with the infrastructure for high-speed Internet access expanding, and with it e-commerce," Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, vice president of Asia Pacific and Latin America operations, said in a news release. "Google's Latin America teams will partner closely with businesses, advertisers and agencies throughout the region to enable them to capitalize on the significant opportunities this brings."

The Mexico operation will be led by Gonzalo Alonso, while in Brazil, Alexandre Hohagen will take the lead.
