A high-level delegation from the government of Karnataka on Wednesday met Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn) chairman Young Liu at the company headquarters in Taiwan, and held discussions about investment plans in the Indian State.
The delegation consisted of Gunjan Krishna, Commissioner for Industrial Development and Director of Industries and Commerce, and Kedarnath Mudda, Senior Advisor to Basavaraj Bommai, Chief Minister of Karnataka.
Foxconn’s spokesman James Wu, Chief Investment Officer James Tu, and some more executives were also present on the occasion, an official release said.
”Foxconn’s potential investment in Karnataka will be a testament to the State’s industrial landscape. We are working towards building the best electronics and manufacturing ecosystems, which will attract further investments in the sector.

Foxconn is said to be the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, with a total revenue exceeding NT$ (New Taiwan dollar) 6 trillion in 2022. As of last year, it ranks 20th in the Fortune Global 500.
Foxconn has 173 campuses and offices in 24 countries or regions around the world.

”With a strong and stable industrial policy, our aim is to make Karnataka a key electronics and manufacturing hub. With Foxconn’s potential investment, the State is gearing up to be the topmost in the country to attract many other global electronics companies,” said Large and Medium Industries Minister Murugesh Nirani.
Gunjan Krishna said the government would like to extend full support to Foxconn and is thrilled to see Karnataka being considered as a potential investment destination. ”Our investment-friendly policies and processes will further facilitate them to grow in the State,” she said. PTI
