Report: Apple’s increased focus on manufacturing in India has created 20,000 jobs

And 200,000 jobs could be created over the next five years

A new report from the Financial Express says Apple’s increasing focus on manufacturing in India has created 20,000 jobs. And the Indian government says that 200,000 jobs could be created over the next five years.

The Financial Express says that Apple suppliers Foxconn and Wistron alone have hired 7,500 workers each. The article adds that it’s estimated that the vendors supplying inputs to those two companies, like Sunwoda, Foxlink, Salcomp and others, have also hired approximately 5,000 additional employees. This is in an effort to support the manufacturing of the two contract manufacturer firms.
