Recently, Apple has been banned to sell its iPad in China due to infringement of trademark.

Tim met to labors at Foxconn Zhengzhou Technology Park –presently, the company has 120,000 people.  Foxconn is a largest manufacturer of Apple’s global supply chain–manufacturing and assembling most of iPhones and iPads in China. Foxconn has been litigated for improper labor practices in the homeland by activist groups. There is very tough working conditions in the Apple’s largest contract manufacturer’s  factory, upshot a strings of workers committed suicides in recent years.

China’s Vice Premier—Li Kegiang—said, “To be more open to the outside is a condition for China to transform its economic development, expand domestic demands and conduct technological innovation,”

However, China’s Vice Premier promised the CEO to help Apple in the country for intellectual property protection on Wednesday.   For selling iPhone in China, Apple has tied-up with China Telecom and China Unicom. The company is also more likely to persuade China’s largest mobile carrier vendor “China Mobile” for selling of its iPhone in the country.
