TAIPEI -- Chairman Terry Gou of key iPhone assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn Technology Group, said on Thursday that his business empire would invest more than $10 billion and create employment in the U.S., focusing on Republican heartlands and swing states.

"We will provide tens of thousands of jobs," Gou told reporters after the company's annual shareholders' meeting. "It is possible [Foxconn and Sharp together] will invest more than $10 billion, not all at once, but probably over a five-year span." Foxconn bought struggling Japanese display maker Sharp last year.
