Microsoft Denies Shifting Production Out of China

Microsoft

San Francisco: Microsoft has denied reports that it is going to shift production of its Xbox gaming consoles out of China. According to a report in Nikkei Asian Review last week, tech giants like HP Inc, Dell, Microsoft and Amazon were considering to move ‘substantial production capacity out of China’ owing to the ongoing US-China trade war. In a statement given to CNET, a Microsoft spokesperson said: “The reporting from Nikkei Asia Review was inaccurate and does not reflect Microsoft’s manufacturing plans in China in any way.” Lenovo also reacted to the report, saying it too has no plans to move production of its laptops out of China. According to the report, HP and Dell who make notebooks in the Chinese cities of Chongqing and Kunshan are looking to move up to 30 per cent of their laptop production out of the country. Amazon could also shift production of its Kindles and Echo speakers. (IANS)
