Taipei, Jan. 22 (CNA) Terry Gou (郭台銘), chairman of Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., the world’s
largest electronics contract manufacturer, confirmed Sunday that he had considered investing in the panel sector in the United States, but said such investment depends on the new U.S. government’s relevant policies.
Gou made the remarks in an informal meeting with local and foreign reporters at Hon Hai’s year-end weiya earlier in the day.
He was responding to SoftBank Group chief executive officer Masayoshi Son’s revelation of Hon Hai’s intention to invest in the U.S. during his meeting with then-U.S. President-elect Donald Trump in December last year.
Confirming that he and Son had spoken on the phone before Son’s trip to the U.S., Gou said they both talked about SoftBank’s plan to invest in the U.S. [FULL STORY]
