TAIPEI -- Foxconn on Wednesday said it has restarted some production at facilities in Shenzhen after suspending manufacturing there on Monday when the local government imposed a partial lockdown of the city in southern China.

Shenzhen is the company's second-largest manufacturing hub in China, and Foxconn said on Monday it was halting production at its Longhua and Guanlan complexes in the city, from which it supplies Apple, Google and Amazon, among other companies. The local government told nonessential businesses to close to deal with a COVID-19 spike.
