BEIJING: As Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke of plans to expand manufacturing operations in India, China apprehends that it could lead to possible exodus of Apple production chain and loss of tens of thousands of jobs, Chinese state-run media said.
"It seems the time has come for China to consider whether it is ready for the possible exodus of Apple Inc's production chain," an article in Global Times said, referring to Cook's comments during his India tour.
Cook had discussed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi the "possibilities of manufacturing".
"Cook shared Apple Inc's future plans for India. He spoke of the possibilities of manufacturing and retailing in India. He appreciated the breadth of young talent in India and said the youth have significant skills which Apple would like to tap," an official statement had said.
Now Modi haters can see the result of Modi''s effort.
Lets wait for their first Made in India I-phone then we can start praising....
Lets see the result.....
Apple, for its own interest, is trying to find a cheaper alternative to China to be more cost competitive and perhaps India meets the bill. This has nothing to do with Modi. India''s per capita income is far behind China, so is the labor cost!!!
Please read the article, Apple is not considering planning to come to India because of Modi. It is because of increased cost of manufacturing in China.
This may negotiating tactics of Apple keep modi just like a bait for catching fish.
The wheels of India''s development has been moving before the BJP, Feku Modi just wan''t to take credit for it because he has idiots supporters like you who will believe when he says, cow dung is food,. eat it.
China and India should fight for bread crumbs.
Modi is a liar !

I dont think its Modi magic. Its the economic conditions in China playing in favour of India
It''s not Modi , Apple wants to lower the manufacturing cost, so planning to move out of China. Read the article properly
Its Time to ban all Chinese products now :-) U.S. should slowly shift all manufacturing to India :-) Ha Ha Ha ! So Chinese ambition in South China Sea will end :-)
APPLE IS SUFFERING NOW AND NEED DOCTORS. INDIA CAN CURE IT SO COOK IS HERE.
