News Politics: According to Nikkei Asia, Apple is in discussions to produce Apple Watches and MacBooks in Vietnam for the first time as the US tech giant attempts to diversify production away from China. In order to manufacture the device outside of China, Apple suppliers Luxshare Precision Industry and Foxconn, according to the publication, have begun testing manufacturing of the Apple Watch there.

Regarding the production of the MacBook, Apple has asked suppliers to set up a test production line in Việt Nam. However, progress in moving mass production to the country has been slow, partly due to pandemic-related disruptions. Việt Nam is already Apple’s most important production hub outside of China, producing a wide range of flagship products for the American company, including iPad tablets and AirPods earphones.

The number of Apple suppliers with facilities in the Southeast Asian country has increased to at least 22 from 14 in 2018, according to Nikkei Asia’s analysis of Apple’s latest available suppliers list. Many other major electronics manufacturers like Google, Dell and Amazon have also set up production in the country to diversify beyond China, the newspaper added. — VNS
