Starting from this year, Foxconn technology will be starting the mass production of Apple's iPhones in India. The facility is expected to create 13,000 jobs.

The founder isn't stepping down or relinquishing his chairmanship, said Louis Woo, special assistant to Gou.

Reuters reports that Terry Gou is halting his career there "to pave the way for younger talent to move up the company's ranks".

He is reportedly the company's largest shareholder, according to Forbes. Foxconn boss Terry Gou hinted Monday he would soon step back from frontline operations while remaining at the helm of the major Apple supplier.

It is unclear how Apple's foray into manufacturing in India will affect its relationship with China, which has been its production hub for years with Foxconn and other partner companies.

Gou said that his company is talking with the government about investment terms.

"We are the primary assembler after all", Gou said on Monday. On Xiaomi's Indian website, the Redmi Note 7 has a price of 9,999 rupees ($143), which is about a 10th the price of Apple's iPhone Xs in the country.

Also known by its official name Hon Hai Precision Industry, the firm is the world's biggest contract electronics maker and assembles Apple's iPhones as well as gadgets for other global brands.
