Pegatron could start making iPads & MacBooks in Indonesia as early as June | Apple Insider
Less reliance in one country is probably a good thing. As the saying goes, don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Sana sa Pinas na lang!
Why is that so? Is it because of cheap labor? Of Indonesians making better gadgets?
This is a big oof for PH tech manufacturing. We know we can do it competently and competitively, our gov't and private sector dropped the ball here.
U.S.-China trade war is the most likely reason.
"Manufacturing in Indonesia was Islam dunk decision."
"The next MacBook and iPad will be mo' slim."
Mm....if the trade war worsens, it is possible that Apple will shift part of iPhone production to other countries to avoid tariffs for iPhones bound for the US market.
Pegatron is shifting iPhone, Mac and iPad production into Indonesia, Vietnam and India. Plenty of cheaper-than-China labor. Foxconn will also produce the iPhone in India.
China’s loss is India’s gain.
Sadly our government chooses the wrong side at the wrong time. Also it is not feasible already to put up a manufacturing plant here due to the upcoming Trabaho Bill aka Train 2 Law.
Against Indonesia, easiest I can think of is our minimum wage is higher and we get 1 more month maternity leave
If he factory is set up in Batam, Apple execs can stay at Singapore and take a 1 hour ferry to the island
Bigger issue than minimum wage is that our electricity rates are high.
