Foxconn Factories Abandoned as Apple Shifts Production Out of China [Video]

Posted April 29, 2024 at 5:33pm by iClarified
New footage out of China shows that Foxconn's industrial park in Nanning has been largely abandoned as Apple shifts more of its production to Vietnam and India.

The closure of various Foxconn production facilities over the past few years has had a ripple effect on local economies, impacting retail, housing, employment, suppliers, and more.

In video posted to YouTube, China Observer takes a closer look at the importance of these factories and future of Chinese manufacturing.

Recently, aerial footage taken by a netizen in Guangxi showcased the vast expanse of the Foxconn industrial park in Nanning, which is now eerily deserted. A local man remarked, "The Foxconn plant in Nanning once required massive daily resources, including 60 tons of rice, 280 pigs, 1.2 million eggs, and 80,000 chickens to cater to its workforce. Its dining hall could accommodate 12,000 workers at a time, and the facility employed 50,000 people. Amidst criticism, this industrial behemoth has now shifted its operations to Vietnam, marking a broader trend affecting Foxconn facilities across the country. This move serves as a reminder that even the most substantial operations are subject to change."
