Hon Hai Precision Industry Co (鴻海精密), known internationally as Foxconn Technology Group (富士康科技集團), is in talks to build a US$9 billion chip plant in Zhuhai, Guangdon Province, China, Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review reported on Friday.

Hon Hai, a major iPhone assembler for Apple Inc, plans to start the construction as early as 2020, with most of the investment expected to be subsidized by the Zhuhai city government, the report said, quoting people familiar with the matter.

The Taiwanese company is expected to join in the venture with the city government and its subsidiary, Japanese electronics maker Sharp Corp, it added.

The plant would produce chipsets for ultra-high-definition 8K TVs and camera image sensors, as well as sensor chips for connected devices and industrial use, hoping eventually to produce advanced chips for robotics and autonomous vehicles, the report said.    [FULL  STORY]
