Trump vill tvinga Apple att tillverka sina datorer i USA skriver 99mac:

”Under ett möte vid Liberty University i Virginia i veckan tog Donald Trump upp Apple som ett exempel på hur han ämnade ta tillbaka tillverkningsjobb till USA, rapporterar 9to5mac. Trump sade att om han blev president skulle han tvinga Apple att tillverka sina produkter inom USA:s gränser. Trump gick dock inte in på detaljer hur detta skulle ske, men sade:

”Vi har såna fantastiska människor i det här landet: smarta, skarpa, energiska, de är fantastiska. Jag har sagt att vi ska göra Amerika stort igen, och jag tror verkligen att vi kan säga nu, och jag tror verkligen det, att vi kommer att se saker hända… Vi ska få Apple att börja bygga sina jäkla datorer och saker i det här landet, istället för i andra länder.”

Apple tillverkar en del av sina Mac-datorer i USA, så som Mac Pro. Annars sker den mesta tillverkningen av produkter som Iphone, Ipad och Mac i Kina.”

 

Indien är angeläget om att återuppta handelsförhandlingarna med EU skriver indiska Daily News and Analysis:

”Asserting that India is keen on resuming long-stalled talks for trade pact with the European Union, Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday said she has approached the 28-nation bloc for a meeting of chief negotiators of the two sides.

While speaking with reporters here, the minister said that after returning from the India-EU Summit in Brussels, she wrote a letter to her (EU) ”counterpart seeking from her dates for the chief negotiators to meet”.

”We are keen on resuming the talks,” Sitharaman said. ”The EU Ambassador (Tomasz Kozlowski), I am aware, has spoken in Mumbai about we are not ready yet to resume the talks, but I want to make it plain here that India is keen on resuming the talks,” she said further.

The minister has written the letter to EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom. In Mumbai yesterday, Kozlowski said that the EU was very much interested to have free trade agreement (FTA) with India.

The negotiations for the Bilateral Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA) have been held up since May 2013 as both the sides are yet to bridge substantial gaps on crucial issues, including data security status for the IT sector.”

Richard Branson varnar för inskränkningar i frihandeln enligt Breitbart:

”Tuesday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” English business investor and founder of the Virgin Group, Richard Branson warned against proposals that would restrict free trade, such as the ones Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has proposed, would make Americans “suffer.”

Partial transcript as follows:

CHUCK TODD, HOST OF MSNBC’S “MTP DAILY”: Let me shift gears here a little bit. And I’m just curious if your perspective as a global business leader. The impact of Donald Trump on the perception of America around the world.

BRANSON: It hasn’t been good. He’s come out with a lot of comments which make, I think, most people in the world feel very uncomfortable about. For one thing, free trade, you know, free trade has worked for America. And if you’re going to put up walls around America and stop free trade, America will suffer.”
