McDonald's fixes Website on Taiwan identity
Updated: 2004-12-02 08:45

Mcdonald's headquarters released a press release on Tuesday saying that its official Website had been revised after it wrongly listed Taiwan into its own select country list, but failed to give a reasonable explanation, according to The Beijing Times yesterday.

On November 24 and 25, international big name companies, including McDonald's, Audi, Benz, GE and Siemens, drew intense response from Chinese media and leadership for including Taiwan in the list of countries on their official English Websites.

Siemens made an immediate revision of their site, and GE and Benz followed suit.

On Monday, McDonald's declared that its official Website had made the correction.

Now on the McDonald's Website, the original "select country" feature in its search engine has been changed to "select country/region," to include Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Audi has not made the correction.
