He also put some light on other necessary information. Rudiantara expressed that the Cupertino-based smartphone manufacturer would confirm the proper location for the project in the next month. Following this, the construction and recruitment will eventually roll out in 2017.
According to the Minister, the Cupertino biggie has also discussed the value of the investment for the project. But due to the secrecy of the project, the government could not reveal the figures to the media.
Apple has most of its development centers in its home, Cupertino. But still, it does back numerous satellite offices across the country. The purpose of putting these satellites is practical usage like tapping into local expertise. Moreover, there is a political frame as well like ensuring good relations with countries that require the approval of the import or sale of Apple products.
As per MakeMac, Apple is establishing the RD center in the region for which it will get a license in return for selling its LTE devices in Indonesia. On the basis of population, Indonesia stands at the fourth place in the world with in excess of 260 million people. On the first position China is standing, then India and right after that the USA takes third place.
Therefore, Indonesia seems to be a big market for the Apple products as well as an Apple RD center.
