Foxconn is moving an iPad and MacBook assembly to Vietnam from China at the request of Apple, Inc. as the firm has diversified production to lessen the impact of the Sino-US trade war. 

The development has occurred when the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump urged firms in the United States to shift production out of China.

During Trump’s term, the United States has targeted electronics that were made in China for higher import tariffs.

Supplies were restricted as well to Chinese firms because they saw it as a national security risk.

Foxconn Chairman Liu Young-way informed that the investors of the Sino-U.S. trade war had split the world into two. 

He added that his firm aimed to provide “two sets of supply chains.”
