Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou is making it clear he’s not taking anything from his fellow workers at Foxconn in China.
The Foxconn boss, who has been criticized by some critics for his treatment of workers in the country’s factories, is also making clear he won’t be laying off workers.
“I’m not going anywhere,” Gou told reporters Wednesday, according to CNN.
“I’m here for a long time.
I’m not coming to any decision.”
Gou, a Chinese national who has a wife and two daughters in the U.S., also reiterated that Foxconn’s new high-speed network is in the works, and he said the company will keep manufacturing, producing and selling computers and televisions.
He said the new network will be the most technologically advanced in the world, but would not give any details on how it would work.
Gou’s comments come as some U.N. workers are protesting what they call unfair labor practices by Chinese factories.
The United Nations has warned China for years that the country has not done enough to protect its workers.
Foxconn is a key part of Foxconn Group Holdings Ltd., which includes Foxconn Technology Group, the parent company of the two largest manufacturers in the United States.
Foxconn’s factories are in the Shenzhen suburb of Shenzhen and employ some 1.3 million workers in more than 200 countries.
Foxis new high speed network will provide better access to internet, higher speed and faster communication for workers, Gou said.
The network will have “high capacity” and “great connectivity” to other Foxconn facilities, he said.
Fox is the world’s largest manufacturer of televisions and computer chips, with a worldwide production of more than 7 billion televisions a year.
