Trump's vows to get Apple and other companies to move manufacturing away from southern China and back to the U.S. has sparked little concern among executives in the region, reports John Lyons. "The economic forces that transformed this once-poor backwater in Guangdong Province into a sea of skyscrapers are too massive to be rolled back, their thinking goes. Even if Mr. Trump imposes tariffs on Chinese-made goods, as he has threatened to do, it's now so efficient to engineer, produce and ship electronics from this region of southern China that it could still outcompete the U.S., they say."
