Facebook was hoping to open a $30 million subsidiary in China's eastern province of Zhejiang. "China has wanted to control what gets into the public hands which has made Google and Facebook's entry hard there", Elazar Advisors analyst Chaim Siegel said.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been making overtures to China and its ruling officials for some time now, infamously going jogging in heavy smog in Beijing on one visit to the country.

In Hangzhou, Facebook will operate a startup incubator that will invest in, and advise local businesses. Zuckerberg's clumsy speech in Mandarin in 2015, launch of the Chinese version of its Moments app called Colourful Balloons in 2017 and the company quietly searching for an office space in Shanghai the same year-all of this seems to be a part of Facebook's plan to re-enter the forbidden land.
