Investments will continue for the next two years, as confirmed by the chairman of Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn’s most official name), Young Liu.
“We have gradually raised a supply chain and a distribution network for electric vehicles“Liu added. The company will continue to expand its borders and, after the United States, look at Europe.
