Taiwanese business tycoon Terry Gou has been in the news recently. Gou is the chair and CEO of Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer. The company is the trading name of the Taiwan-based Hon Hai Precision Industry Company and counts Apple among its major clients.
Last week, Foxconn broke ground on a US$10 billion display panel plant in the US state of Wisconsin. The project is in line with the Trump administration’s policy to bring manufacturing jobs back from Asia. President Donald Trump, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan were present at the ground-breaking ceremony.
