Apple’s plan to start manufacturing in India

Apple wrote to India’s industry ministry in Dec 2016 seeking lower import and manufacturing duties. Apple’s plan towards a bigger slice of Indian sales has encountered challenges due the India’s policy whith requires at least 30% of components to be made locally before a foreign company can sell through their own outlets. Provided that Apple makes most of its products in China, Apple doesn’t meet that criteria.

Thanks to the “Make in India”policy, Apple wants to start another round of discussion with the tax department on the future liability on its India earnings.

If this new plan is going to happen, the biggest impact will be on the Foxconn Technology Group – Apple’s main manufacturing partner in China. Most iPhones are put together in China by Foxconn.

蘋果在2016年12月寫信給印度工業部,尋求降低進口和製造職責。蘋果在印度增加銷售額計劃實在遇到了挑戰,因為印度的政策要求國外公司有至少30%的組件在本地製造,才可在店舖銷售。但蘋果公司大部分產品都在中國製造,因而不符合這一標準。

多得“印度製造”政策,蘋果將再與印度稅務部門就其收益的未來責任展開新一輪討論。

如果這個新計劃將要發生,受最大影響的將是富士康科技集團 – 蘋果在中國的主要製造合作夥伴。大多數iPhone都是是由富士康在中國製造。
