Google Inc., the world’s biggest Web search engine, said on Friday it is looking to hire more engineers in Japan to develop new technologies in one of the most advanced markets for mobile technologies.

“We hope to be much bigger in Japan,” Omid Kordestani, Google’s senior vice president in charge of global sales, told a conference in Tokyo. “We want more innovation in this market.”

Mountain View, California-based Google is trying to expand its presence abroad, from where more than 50 percent of Google.com traffic comes. Kordestani said he is aiming to raise international sales to more than half of Google’s total revenue, from 42 percent in the recent quarter.
