Nanning plant to consolidate firm's 'moving inland' strategy

Experts said the latest investment, reportedly worth 5 billion yuan ($802 million), in Nanning, capital of the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, will enable Foxconn to consolidate its "moving inland" strategy. This is in line with the city's plan to boost electronics industries.

Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, Foxconn's parent, has signed an agreement with the local government to build a tablet and smartphone plant in the city, China Business News reported on Friday.

The investment aims to win Nanning a reputation as a modern manufacturing, commercial and logistics center in the region, it quoted Foxconn chief Terry Gou as saying.

Liu Kun, a Shenzhen-based spokesman for the company, declined to confirm the report, saying that all ongoing projects on the Chinese mainland will be announced through the Taiwan Stock Exchange, on which Hon Hai is listed.

But he told China Daily that Shenzhen, Zhengzhou and Chengdu remain the key hubs for Foxconn. The three cities serve the country's southern, central and western markets.

Nanning's economic planning body has said it wants to attract companies like Foxconn to the city.

"Electronics is definitely a prioritized industry in our economic outline," said Cao Xiaojun, an official with the city's development and reform commission, who oversees industrial planning.

Cao said companies like Foxconn will create a win-win situation by bringing in more capital and consolidating the industrial chain.

Cao said investors can make full use of Nanning's geographic advantage as a gateway to member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

"As a result, we are seeing a growing number of companies setting up their regional bases in Nanning," she said.

The government will provide incentives to encourage emerging industries to come to Nanning, Cao added.
