Apple CEO Tim Cook met Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong

 

Apple CEO Tim Cook met Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Wednesday (11/12/2019).

In a post on his Facebook account, PM Lee said he and Cook talked about the technological changes that have occurred since the two first met four years ago. He also mentioned that Apple has strong ties with Singapore.

But now, according to PM Lee, Apple is no longer producing devices in Singapore. Even so, there are still many Singaporeans who still work at Apple, both located in Singapore and other countries.

This is Cook’s first visit to Singapore since he became Apple’s CEO in 2011. During his visit, he also met with several iOS application developers and met several students at the Singapore School of Science and Technology who had graduated from Apple’s Swift Accelerator coding program.


The purpose of his two-day visit is indeed to strengthen Apple’s developer ecosystem. He wants to find superior programmers seedlings since they are still in school, as quoted from the Straits Times, Thursday (12/12/2019).

He also mentioned the importance of foreign language skills with coding skills. These two abilities, according to him, are the key to success in the future.
