If you want to get FOXCONN to relocate to Henan, THIS IS PROBABLY AN OPTION.

Since it cost Rmb35 billion to do it - your own data!

Look, does a provincial government really have to pay a company to set up factory in its jurisdiction?  I doubt it.

Tax breaks or temporary tax excemptions is the order of the day and at the same time the workforce, which earns some nice money, is enabled to consume more. A win, win situation.

YES!

Happens in many parts of the world!
Happens when we first started in 1980's!
You were still in "diapers" when that happened. I was in the first few teams!

Very impractical..........not good!

First industry to move from Guangdong was probably the cotton spinning mills.
No cotton in Guangdong!
Other high labour percentage trades is next.

Low labour input trades are not really plausible!
Foxconn appears to be "labour supply contractor" for Apple, Hewlett Packard etc.
It's profit is only stated at 2% of it's revenue - very low margins!

ha ha ha

Being direct is easier, instead of slowly showing you the underwear!

Could be but this does not answer the question. Does Foxconn relocate out of GD or is it only a streamlining process? I understand that they do not give up the entire production line in GD, or do they?

Trying to figure out the MINDSET of a Industrialist, aren't we?

ha ha ha

I have just look at the pictures of their Shenzhen campus at Foxconn site, It's marvellous!
and probably be 15% of the Industrial workforce in the City of Shenzen as well!

Boy! YOu guys DO ALL THE UNPOPULAR STUFFS!

The easiest would be THE SEWING OPERATIONS, labour intensive operation with lower logistic cost!
IMAGINE, if labour cost is only 2%, that means it's buying a lot of INTERMEDIATES from around Guangdong, Taiwan,Malaya, Singapore, Korea or Japan!

Moving it deeper into the interior means more cost with transport, new investments easily outstrip other consideration!

BUT I RECKON, they'll move to HENAN like what Alex said!

WA HA HA HA
