Kari ReynoldsJan 24, 2017

If the development of this factory takes place, it will most likely create 30,000 to 50,000 jobs for the USA citizens.

Trump promised to bring jobs to the USA and repeated singled out Apple for its use of Chinese manufacturers - Foxconn among them - in stump speeches across the country during his campaign. After this announcement, Foxconn briefly stated that it was in preliminary discussions to expand its operations in the U.S. Later on, Gou confirmed this news in Taiwan about the plans of setting up the Foxconn display factory.

The factory would build flat-panel screens under the Sharp name-Foxconn bought Sharp around this time past year for $5.1 billion. In a December meeting with Donald Trump, Son pledged to invest $50 billion in the USA, and the next day, Foxconn declared its plan to expand its us operations but offered no details.

Taiwanese iPhone manufacturer Foxconn is considering a $7 billion joint investment with Apple to establish a display manufacturing facility in the United States, it was reported on Sunday.

In December, Dan Panzica, a manufacturing analyst with IHS Markit, who worked for Foxconn for several years, told the Journal that bringing Apple-related manufacturing jobs to the USA would be hard because the United States lacks the population centers to support major manufacturing operations like the ones that exist in China.

Gou added that Foxconn would also remain active in China, dispelling talk that Beijing may be pressuring Foxconn about its investments.

The deal will hinge on whether or not the USA can attract Foxconn.

Trump, who took oath as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, criticized Apple and other American companies for making products in Asia.

Any investment in such a project by Apple would create a victory politically for President Donald Trump.

Foxconn employs about a million people in China.

Foxconn was also rumored five years ago to be scouting the United States to build a display screen factory for its Apple business, and may have considered NY state at that time.

"In the future they may be paying some $500 more for [U.S.] products, but those do not necessarily work better than a $300 phone", Gou explained.

The greatest reason for increasing investment in China is due to the Far East nation's ample availability of cheap and reliable resources, especially its labor. The company pounced as soon as it spotted an opportunity to invest on the mainland, buying land in Shenzhen to build a factory.

In the USA, it has a plant in Virginia for packaging and engineering which employes over 400 people.
