Tim Cook visits China to discuss... something

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.
