Tim Cook visits China to discuss... something
Apple CEO Tim Cook is paying China a visit once again. The executive will be meeting with China's head of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Miao Wei. Exactly what the two of them are going to discuss is a mystery, but we can be pretty sure that Apple's business in the country is going to be one of the main topics.

China is an important market for Apple for two reasons. First, it is a major emerging market, which means it's recognized as a big opportunity for business growth by almost all device manufacturers. Apple's investments in the Chinese market have been expanding lately, as the company has significantly increased the number of its retail stores there. Second, China is where Apple's profitable iPhone and iPad get assembled, and as you've probably heard, there have been a number of problems lately with the factories working on Apple's devices. The latter has also been among the reasons for Tim Cook's previous visits to China, when he personally examined the work conditions in some of those factories.

That should be the question China asking Tim Cook.
Unfortunately, he won't be answering, so i'll do the honors.
Tim Cook visited China to learn the art of 'cheap phone making 101'.

Perhaps put more pressure on Foxconn? I've seen a fair few Iphone 5s about which rattle and have 'loose weights' inside when you shake it slightly. Quality control hasn't been the greatest.

Maybe he went to join THE Communist party to stop selling android phone in china since the phone is not salling well in china.
