Foxconn owner mulls $1 billion Indonesia investment

Reading Time: 1 minute

Hon Hai Group, the Taiwan-based owner of Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer, is mulling over the possibility of making a $1 billion investment in Indonesia, the company announced on July 13.

Group Chairman Terry Gou was in the country from July 6 to 10 on an invitation from the government to assess what potential the establishment of a production base in ASEAN’s largest economy could offer, the Taipei Times reported .

The vast archipelago has many attractive traits for investors: Indonesia is the fourth most populous nation in the world with over 240 million people, 50 per cent of which are under the age of 30.

Beyond favourable demographics, politically stability and impressive economic growth are likely factors that Gou will have to consider. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s democratically elected government, which took office in 2004, has since ushered in a new era of market-economy reforms that have cleaned up messy tax codes and an over-segmented banking sector.

The construction of manufacturing facilities born from the proposed investment are estimated to create one million jobs, a prospect that has lead the Indonesian government to consider tax breaks.

Hon Hai Group employs over one million workers in China, where iconic gadgets from Apple, Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Sony are assembled.

Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, the flagship corporation of Hon Hai Group, also recently announced a $111 million investment in Jiangsu province to expand facilities there, according to the Taipei Times.
