Following the China’s vice premier promised Tim Cook that the country would boost intellectual property protection during Cook’s second second day of meetings in the company’s biggest potential market, Apple CEO took a trip to Zhengzhou to check out the new Foxconn manufacturing facility and its iPhone production line.

“Apple has had a string of negative publicity this year with Foxconn factory issues,” said Mark Natkin, managing director of Marbridge Consulting Ltd., a Beijing-based market research firm. “Apple is trying to demonstrate how seriously they take these issues, and how strong their commitment is to China.” The plant, located in the Foxconn Zhengzhou Technology Park, is the world’s largest smartphone production base, having 95 production lines, and employing about 120,000 people.
