Taiwan’s Foxconn, an Apple supplier has stated that it is trying to seek Indian partners to cooperate in fields like chips and electric vehicles, as reported by CNN. The announcement came after Foxconn, Hon Hai Technology Group, chairman and CEO Young Liu ended his visit to India.

“India is a country with a large population,” CNN quoted Young Liu as saying.
“My trip this week supported Foxconn’s efforts to deepen partnerships … and seek cooperation in new areas such as semiconductor development and electric vehicles,” he added.
As per the CNN report, Foxconn will thrive to talk with the local government of India to seek practical development possibilities for the company as stressed by Young Liu.
