This week, Apples CEO Tim Cook, said, “ We talked about the president’s desire to see manufacturing in the country, and it’s something that we will look at. I think the investment ability in Indonesia is endless. I think that there’s a lot of great places to invest. And we’re investing. We believe in the country.” Tim recently expressed the company's openness to exploring manufacturing opportunities in Indonesia following a meeting with President Joko Widodo. This move comes as Apple aims to diversify its manufacturing base beyond its heavy reliance on China. Cook emphasized the potential for investment in Indonesia, highlighting the country's abundant opportunities. With the ongoing global pandemic revealing vulnerabilities in the supply chain, particularly in China, Apple has been actively seeking alternative manufacturing locations. Vietnam has emerged as a significant manufacturing hub for Apple, with products like MacBook, iPad, and Apple Watch being produced there. Cook's recent visit to Vietnam underscores the company's commitment to expanding its manufacturing footprint in Southeast Asia.


Furthermore, Apple has been strengthening its manufacturing presence in India, doubling its iPhone production in the country compared to the previous year. This strategic move not only mitigates risks associated with over-reliance on China but also aligns with Apple's broader agenda of diversification and expanding its global reach. As the tech giant continues to navigate the evolving landscape of global manufacturing, exploring new markets like Indonesia while deepening its presence in existing ones such as Vietnam and India remains pivotal to its long-term growth and strength in the face of unforeseen challenges.
