It seems that Apple is all set to make its way to the world's most populous market, China, as news of the new chief executive of Apple, Tim Cook, making a visit to China caught the attention of media. It was confirmed that he has met many Chinese government officials there.
"Tim is in China meeting with government officials. China is very important to us and we look forward to even greater investment and growth there”, said an Apple spokeswoman in China, though she didn’t divulge more details about the visit.
As of now, Apple has only five stores in mainland China and one in Hong Kong, but there are fair chances that the numbers may ramp up in the time to come. China, being the world's largest mobile market, has been a hot spot for many companies since so many years and perhaps that’s why it has always got so much attention in terms of business expansion from giant companies.
Of late, Apple has been facing tough competition from Samsung in smartphones and that’s why Apple is quite determined to make a comeback there to capture the lost glory. There are fair chances that it will soon unveil the latest version of its top-selling iPad in the country.
