Apple to open online store in Indonesia

Updated

Apple has been approved to open an online store in Indonesia by the Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board, according to a report. The store will be based in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, as Apple looks to expand its reach; with over 238 million people spread across a remarkable 17,500 islands, Indonesia is the world’s fourth-most populous country. Currently, the Apple Store’s Indonesia page directs to resellers and Apple Stores in other countries. It’s also noted in the report that Foxconn plans to build a manufacturing plant in Indonesia.
