The vice-president of news at the technology giant, Mr Gingras emphasised his employer's interest in supporting a healthy media environment in a briefing with journalists on Tuesday.
His message, which sought to counter accusations Facebook and Google are siphoning advertising dollars away from the news industry, is a timely one.
While in Sydney, Mr Gingras will speak with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), which is considering the effect digital platforms like search engines and social media are having on media competition.
