Tim Cook Once Again In China To Discuss Apple's Future In The World's Largest Country
Tim Cook is once again in China. The Apple CEO has arrived in the world’s most populous country for the second time in 10 months, according to Bloomberg. Cook’s visit, which was announced by the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, will almost certainly take the executive to Foxconn facilities. Beforehand however, Cook is meeting with Chinese officials to discuss Apple’s business in the country. The Apple CEO’s arrival in China comes after his company increased the number of retail stores there from six to 11. In March 2012, Cook had promised “greater investment” in the world’s largest market for computers and mobile phones. In December, it was reported that Apple had sold 2 million iPhone 5s in China in just three days. Most Apple products are manufactured in China. However, the company has announced that some of this work will return to the U.S. in 2013. No doubt, this will surely be discussed during Cook's visit.
