Zuckerberg, Tim Cook Meet China’s President in Beijing

BEIJING – The founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and Apple Inc. CEO, Tim Cook, met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing, in one of the first public appearances of the leader since his reelection as the Communist Party’s general secretary, according to official media on Tuesday.

The meeting took place on Monday during a reception by Xi for advisers, including two technology sector magnates, from the prestigious Tsinghua University in Beijing, according to the state television channel CCTV.

Other prominent personalities such as Jack Ma (Alibaba), Pony Ma (Tencent), Robin Li (Baidu) and Elon Musk (Tesla) are also part of the body of advisers.

The visit of the two executives, who visit China frequently, comes a few days before Apple’s latest smartphone model iPhone X’s launch on Friday, with the hope that the product revives sales of Apple products in the huge Chinese market.

Facebook has been blocked in China since 2009, although there are rumors that the communist regime could end its censure of the social network owing to Zuckerberg’s frequent contact with the leaders of the Asian country, which is also the country of origin of his wife.
