Terry Gou knows how to keep politicians happy

Cultivating ties with China's power players pays off for Foxconn's chief

BEIJING Terry Gou knows what politicians want to hear. On May 26, the founder and chairman of Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn Technology Group, caught up with Chen Min'er, the Communist Party secretary for Guizhou Province, at the International Big Data Expo 2017 in Guiyang, southwest China.

"I'm glad to see you again this year," Gou said as the two shook hands. "Guizhou Province's development is really wonderful, since it involves making the most of the latest information technology, such as big data, and is sustainable, in harmony with the environment."
