Foxconn has list of requirements for Brazil

EMS-giant Foxconn is said to have a list of requirements for the Brazilian government when it comes to a possible USD 12 billion investment there.

Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo reported on a list of requirements from the company. These - apparently - have to be met before Foxconn will agree to the billion USD investment. The list includes such item as: - Large property to house more than one division of Foxconn - Export priority shipping at São Paulo (and other unnamed) airports. - Financial support from the Brazilian National Development Bank, BNDES. Special transport and logistic permits are also requested. In response, Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff has also issued a list of requirements: - to hire a primarily Brazilian workforce - transfer of technology - basic respect for Brazilian labour rights and laws There is no immediate and clarified schedule for the project. However, media reports suggest that the Brazilian government is looking at a 8-24 month time-frame to meet Foxconn's demands. The new facility - if being build - is said to be solely focussed on the production for Apple. Foxconn already operates manufacturing facilities in São Paulo, producing hardware for Sony and Dell.
