Aiming to get past the tax problems

Hon Hai Precision Industry said on it will set up a new production complex to make tablets, smartphones and components in Brazil. The company said that it will invest $500 million and create about 10,000 jobs.

In a statement, Hon Hai, the world's largest assembler of electronic devices, which trades under the Foxconn name, said the new complex in Sao Paulo will house five production sites. The company said it will sign an agreement with Sao Paulo city tomorrow.

It did not say which brand of products the site would make. Production will start in 2014 and reach full capacity in 2016.

Most of Hon Hai's plants are in China, but the company, Apple main manufacturing partner, has sought to expand in Brazil and Indonesia. It currently has eight plants in Brazil.

One of the advantages of making products locally is that they are less likely to be hit by crippling import taxes.
