Apple’s Tim Cook calls on PM Modi

“Cook spoke of the possibilities of manufacturing and retailing in India,” an official statement said, adding that there is immense potential for ‘app-development’ in the country.

He also elaborated on the Map Development Centre that Apple Inc. is setting up in Hyderabad.

Stating that Apple runs on 93 per cent renewable energy, Cook talked about plans to move Apple’s entire supply chain to renewable energy.

While Modi explained his Digital India initiative, identifying three key objectives of Digital India as e-education, health and increasing farmers’ incomes, he sought support from Apple in furthering these objectives.

“Issues regarding cyber-security and data encryption also came up for discussion. The Prime Minister encouraged Cook to help the global community to cope with the challenges of cyber-crime,” the statement from the PMO said.

Cook also spoke about his visit to different parts of the country, the Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai, and his meetings with people including youth, business leaders, and film actors. He also launched an updated version of the ‘Narendra Modi Mobile App.’
