America is getting a piece, but India is getting the whole pie.

They would go bankrupt. I remember my favorite job in Colorado was SCI handled computer building for IBM, Dell and Others and I'll never forget the 2001 layoff speech by the director: We are sorry to inform you that we and myself have all been laid off, some of you will be selected for job offers to work in China, Taiwan, Philipines and Thailand because that is where your jobs are heading, labor in the USA has become to expensive. Please check your name on the list before you leave to see if you've been selected for overseas positions.

So if Foxconn really goes to the U.S it'll end the same way, history will repeat itself.

I have been following this, and I think it is good.

 

And I give credit to Trump. He knows not what he is doing, but the Foxconn ppl do.

 

I would go so far as to suggest that Foxconn suggested that POTUS stopped promoting an adjacent island. Foxconn are based there, they are not a PRC company.

The usual. Search “Foxconns broken promises”. It seems Fox Con should be their real name. Brazil, USA and others have fallen victims to them.

Still on the need answers and....

branching out does not mean moving out. When they shutdown factories in China, then talk about moving out

I have been following this in the press. Or at least trying to. Not much info out there.

From what I can figure out, Chinese companies are investing in USA. Last week I read about a Shenzhen tire company setting up a plant in Kentucky.

Can anyone post a link of a US factory in China closing down and the work being transfered back?

Regardless of outcome, foxconn has been great investment stock to buy and hold or trade over the years.

How will this fit in with Trumps trade war?

Is Foxconn inward or outward investment?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
