Foxconn to invest $ 1 billion in India to ease Apple’s dependence on China

Apple is not very happy with the economic problems that have been arising since Donald Trump started a war against China. The company managed by Tim Cook is in the crossfire, being American but relying almost exclusively on the Asian country to produce its devices.

As a result, Apple would be encouraging its suppliers to change the production lines of iPhones, iPads and others to countries where it is possible to maintain low production costs, but which does not cause so much trouble with the US government. With that, Foxconn started to erect a plant in India, which will have a total cost of US $ 1 billion.

The engineering project aims to increase Foxconn’s presence in Sriperumbur, where it already has a production mat for the iPhone XR that in the future should house other models from the Cupertino giant. The project should take up to three years to be fully implemented, and until then the logistical transition would be gradual.

Thus, in the coming years, Apple intends to transform India into its next productive hub, at least according to information from Neil Shah, of Counterpoint Research.

In the coming years, Apple is expected to encourage other partners to change their production hubs, but it is known that the movement negotiated with Foxconn should generate at least 6 thousand jobs in India.

How the Chinese government will react to such a strong blow in its industrial chain remains to be seen. Mainly because India has allied itself with anti-China efforts recently, banning TikTok and so many other apps from Asia.

What about you, what do you think of this move, which is rather clever on the part of Apple and its partners? Tell us in the comments!
