Inviting giants like #Apple, #Samsung & #Foxconn to set up mobile phone manufacturing facilities in India could prove to be a double edged sword for well established Indian contract manufacturers like Dixon Technologies for various reasons. Key among these are....(contd)
(2/8)
Key reasons for concern:
1. COST COMPETITIVENESS
Giant scale manufacturing could mean lower costs which in turn could increase cost competitiveness and reduce margins for existing manufacturers

2. "ATMA-NIRBHAR COMPETITION"
Government providing financial and policy help could encourage existing clientele to start their own distributed manufacturing hubs and control and future proof their supply chains

"Merci Amazon", ou le fantasme du profiteur de crise

Avec ce #thread, faisons un retour sur un petit pamphlet anti-@amazon, qui masque mal derrière de jolis mots une totale incompréhension du sujet qu'il traite.

A dérouler⤵️⤵️⤵️
Cette chronique, signée du romancier/essayiste/consultant @paul_vacca, a été publiée le 23 avril dans le magazine belge Trends Tendances.
Elle est sobrement intitulée « Merci Amazon » : un titre dont on comprend vite l'ironie, car il s’agit - bien évidemment - de dénoncer.
La thèse ? Pour faire simple : le covid19 est le meilleur allié d’#Amazon, un environnement "mieux que le business-as-usual", une "aubaine", un "écosystème idéal".

Et accessoirement, Jeff Bezos est un salaud, concentré sur son business et sans souci pour le bien commun.⤵️

APPLE is one of many giant corporations with supply chains linked to the Chinese state's Uyghur forced labour schemes.

Join the protest from home 2pm Tuesday 14/4! Contact Apple by phone, twitter & insta to demand an end to #AppleForcedLabour.

Stand in solidarity: #FreeUyghurs! Image
Please share this 👆 far & wide! Next Tuesday, let's flood their phone lines and social media with the call to cut ties with forced labour.

And remember - it's Apple's bosses who are responsible, not call centre workers, so please be polite!

#AppleForcedLabour #FreeUyghurs
The labour programmes coercively transfer members of the persecuted Uyghur minority to factories across China.

These include O-Film, #Foxconn, Dongguan Yidong Electronics & Highbroad - all connected to Apple's supply chain: aspi.org.au/report/uyghurs… #appleforcedlabour #freeuyghurs ImageImage

#China struggled to reopen today- especially firms in the #globalsupplychain. Manufacturers dealing with a tangle of conflicting requirements that vary province to province, city to city. Most being asked to provide extensive prevention of #coronavirus before they can reopen.
#GuangdongProvince requires 4 steps:
1) set up prevention/control protocol 2) quarantine non-local/migrant workers
3) supply protective gear for all workers
4) conduct routine temperature checks/disinfection
Factories meeting demand can apply for approval from local authorities.
For those with factories in #Shenzhen, the city explains its application process here: sz.gov.cn/cn/xxgk/zfxxgj… #coronavirus

We are back from a really awesome trip to #Taiwan. In hindsight, delighted that we picked Taiwan, instead of the more common places that Indians typically go to.

Noticed a lot of things that struck us as unique in this trip, so here is a compilation #PPinTaiwan (1/n)
(2/n) How did we choose Taiwan? @AirAsia was running a sale last August when Preethika noticed a good deal, and in a spur of the moment decision, we decided to go there. Yes, the flight tickets were bought 9 months ago. #PPinTaiwan
(3/n) Firstly, getting a visa to Taiwan is pretty easy, especially if you have had a US, UK, Schengen etc visa in the last 10 years. Yes, even if it is expired, it is fine. More details here: passingports.com/taiwan-visa-fo…
Thanks to this, visa for the both of us was free #PPinTaiwan

.#Wisconsin story. The #Foxconn boondoggle, by @AustinCarr. I fear @GovEvers & his successors will be doing damage control on this Scott Walker legacy for many years to come.
More on the #Foxconn boondoggle -- I don't disagree with anything @SykesCharlie says here. We should be clear, though, that although Trump does a cameo at the end of this story, this massive corporate welfare project was a Scott Walker production.
Right from the start, Walker as governor took the view that state government was there to serve business: to cut their taxes, make labor and environmental regulations easy to live with (or dodge), and ladle out incentives with a smile in exchange for the promise of jobs.

Even if my hands were dirty, I wouldn't wash them in this water."

Foxconn has a history of dumping heavy metals into rivers that supply drinking water.

@wisgop has given Foxconn permission to do whatever it would like to #wisconsin rivers and streams.
