Shekou is an area at the southern tip of Nanshan, Guangdong Province, China. It faces Hong Kong across the Shenzhen Bay, it has been designated a Free Trade Zone by the government, alongside Qianhai and Nansha. The area was a customs station of Bao'an County. On 31 January 1979, it became known as the Shekou Industrial Zone, developed by China Merchants of Hong Kong under Yuan Geng's leadership, earlier than the formation of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone; the event is chronicalled in the Chinese ballad "The Story of Spring". Since the 1980s, after foreign oil majors such as Agip, Texaco and Shell obtained concessions for oil exploration in the South China Sea, Shekou started serving as a base for a small contingent of foreign oil platform workers, since qualified personnel were not available locally; as a result of this first mover advantage in catering for western tastes in housing and drink, entertainment and schooling, at a time when no alternatives were available in the area, Shekou became home to the majority of the expatriate population working in and around Shenzhen and part of its hinterland in the Pearl River Delta.
This trend has however abated after the country's continued economic reforms. Development of other parts of the city and substantial increase in English levels of university graduates have made life in the city proper more acceptable to many foreigners without school-age children. In 2003, the local government, seeking to capitalize on the foreign flavor of the area, invested in a complete make-over of Sea World, turning it into a western-style entertainment area centered on the grounded Minghua ship, a 14,000 ton, 168 m long vessel built in 1962 as a French ferry vessel purchased by China in 1973, it is though incorrectly, referred to by many locals as French President Charles De Gaulle's private yacht. Minghua is now landlocked due to extensive local land reclamation and redevelopment efforts. Shekou is undergoing a major redevelopment project, costing an excess of 60 billion RMB; this included the construction of dozens of office and residential towers, a new cruise center replacing the old ferry terminal, a number of shopping malls around Sea World and the refurbishment of numerous older buildings.
Line 2 of the city's metro ends in Chiwan, an area just west of Shekou, therefore the line is known as the Shekou line. Stations geographically located in Shekou include, among others Sea Shekou Port. Shekou Port Ferry Terminal offers regular ferry services to and from Hong Kong and Zhuhai; the customs and immigration process is completed upon disembarking the ferry. Passengers taking ferries directly to Hong Kong International Airport can check in for some flights at the new Shekou Ferry Terminal. Additionally, there are buses travelling from the terminal to the Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport; the area attracts many tourists and has a sizable community of resident foreigners, many non-Chinese restaurants exist in the area. According to the Shenzhen Management and Service Center for Expats, 6,275 of the 43,919 registered expats living in Shenzhen are registered with the Shekou Police Station and Shenzhenwan Police Station alone. Primary and secondary schools for local Mainland Chinese students include: Shekou School, which houses primary and secondary grades Shenzhen Yucai Education Group, which includes one high school, two middle schools, four primary schools and 4 nursery schoolsInternational primary and secondary schools in Shekou include: Shenzhen American International School Shenzhen Japanese School Korean International School in Shenzhen QSI International School of Shekou Shekou International School BASIS International School Shenzhen Recognize International AcademySupplementary schools: Previously the Shenzhen Saturday School, a Japanese supplementary school, was based in the Ming Wah International Convention Centre in Shekou.

Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd. trading as Foxconn Technology Group and better known as Foxconn, is a Taiwanese multinational electronics contract manufacturing company with its headquarters in Tucheng, New Taipei, Taiwan. Today, it is the world's largest provider of electronics manufacturing services and the fourth-largest information technology company by revenue; the company is one of the largest employers worldwide. Its founder and chairman is Terry Gou. Foxconn manufactures electronic products for major American, Chinese and Japanese companies. Notable products manufactured by Foxconn include the BlackBerry, iPad, iPhone, iPod, Nintendo 3DS, Nokia devices, Xiaomi devices, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, the TR4 CPU socket on some motherboards; as of 2012, Foxconn factories manufactured an estimated 40% of all consumer electronics sold worldwide. Foxconn has been involved in several controversies. In 2010, following a series of employee suicides at its factory in Shenzhen, Foxconn was criticized by labour activists, who accused the company of providing low wages and allowing employees to work past legal overtime limits.
Terry Gou established Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd. as an electrical components manufacturer in 1974. Foxconn's first manufacturing plant in China opened in Longhua Town, Shenzhen, in 1988. One of the important milestones for Foxconn occurred in 2001 when Intel tapped the company to manufacture its Intel-branded motherboards instead of Asus. By November 2007, Foxconn further expanded with an announced plan to build a new US$500 million plant in Huizhou, Southern China. In January 2012, Foxconn named Tien Chong Cheng chief executive of its subsidiary FIH Mobile Limited, he resigned the same year. At this time, Foxconn made up forty percent of worldwide consumer electronics production. Expansion was further pursued after a March 2012 acquisition of a 10-percent stake in the Japanese electronics company Sharp Corporation for US$806 million and to purchase up to 50 percent of the LCDs produced at Sharp's plant in Sakai, Japan. In September 2012, Foxconn announced plans to invest US$494 million in the construction of five new factories in Itu, creating 10,000 jobs.
In 2014, the company purchased Asia Pacific Telecom and won some spectrum licenses at an auction, which allowed it to operate 4G telecommunications equipment in Taiwan. In February 25, 2016, Sharp accepted a ¥700 billion takeover bid from Foxconn to acquire over 66 percent of Sharp's voting stock. However, hours the deal was put on hold after "contingent liabilities... worth billions of dollars" were discovered. A month on March 30, 2016, the deal was announced as finalized in a joint press statement, but at a lower price than before. In 2016, together with Tencent and luxury-car dealer Harmony New Energy Auto, founded Future Mobility, a car start up that aims to sell all-electric autonomous premium cars by 2020. A Foxconn unit, Foxconn Interconnect Technology, announced its intent to acquire Belkin International for $866m on March 26, 2018; the majority of Foxconn's factories are located in Asia, with others in Brazil and Mexico. Foxconn has 12 factories in nine Chinese cities—more than in any other country.
The largest Foxconn factory is located in Longhua Town, where hundreds of thousands of workers are employed at the Longhua Science & Technology Park, a walled campus sometimes referred to as "Foxconn City". The park produces the bulk of Apple's iPhone line. Covering about 1.16 square miles, the park includes 15 factories, worker dormitories, 4 swimming pools, a fire brigade, its own television network, a city centre with a grocery store, restaurants, book store and hospital. While some workers live in surrounding towns and villages, others work inside the complex. Another Foxconn factory "city" is located at Zhengzhou Technology Park in Zhengzhou, Henan province, where a reported 120,000 workers are employed as of 2012. Foxconn's future expansion include sites at Wuhan in Hubei province, Kunshan in Jiangsu province, Tianjin and Guangzhou in Guangdong province, China. A Foxconn branch that manufactures Apple products is Hongfujin. On May 25, 2016, the BBC reported that Foxconn fired 60,000 employees because it had automated "many of the manufacturing tasks associated with their operations".
The organization confirmed those claims. All company facilities in South America are located in Brazil, these include mobile phone factories in Manaus and Indaiatuba as well as production bases in Jundiaí, Santa Rita do Sapucaí; the company is considering more investments in Brazil. Foxconn has factories in Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Foxconn factories are strategically located in Europe, it is the second-largest exporter in the Czech Republic. The Turkey facility is located 100 km west of Istanbul within European Free Trade Zone in the Corlu district, it was established in 2010. It covers 14,300 sq. meters. Foxconn had an operational unit starting in 2006 in the Special Economic Zone of Chennai, Tamil Nadu; this unit closed on December 2014, affecting 25,000 employees. As of mid-2015, Foxconn was in talks to manufacture Apple's iPhone in India. In 2015, Foxconn announced that it would be setting up twelve factories in India and would create around one million jobs, it discussed its intent to work with the Adani group for expansion in the country.
