Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is making a visit to China today, reportedly to discuss the country's long-running anti-trust probe against the company with government officials.


China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce raided Microsoft's offices in four cities in mid-2014 as part of its anti-trust investigation. The agency claimed at the time that Microsoft's products may be in violation of the country's anti-monopoly law due to issues with "compatibility, bundling and document authentication" but it never discussed the specific charges.

Reuters reports, via unnamed sources, that Nadella is in China to discuss the ongoing probe with officials. However, a Microsoft spokesperson would not confirm those reports:

A spokesman for Microsoft declined to confirm whether Nadella is meeting with government officials and said his China visit will include attending a Microsoft Developer day and Tsinghua Management School event.

Nadella is making a tour of several countries in Asia, including his home country of India, which he visited on Monday.
