The authoritative edition of the Nikkei, citing its own sources reported about the negotiations between Apple and its production partners. According to reports, the cupertinos are asked Foxconn, Pegatron and Wistron to evaluate the effects of the transfer of 15-30% of production capacity from China to Southeast Asia.
The reason for such displacement is ongoing trade war between the US and China. However, even if the situation begins to improve, then Apple will still need to think about the transfer of the production from China to other regions. This will allow the company to avoid problems in the future.
According to available data, kupertinovtsy applied to virtually all production partners. In addition to Foxconn, Pegatron and Wistron corresponding request from Apple received more than a dozen companies. Sources say that cupertinos suggest partners to transfer up to one third of production capacities in India, Indonesia or Malaysia.
Last month a representative of the Foxcomm announced that the company has sufficient capacity and resources to transfer part of the production outside of China. Most likely, other large companies also have the proper resources.
