Xiaomi in Brazil: Internet shopping and 100% national manufacturing
Xiaomi's arrival in Brazil was marked by numerous rumors and uncertainties. The main debt was related to the market value of the devices in the country, since in the eight countries in which the company operates the main characteristic of its products is the cost / benefit delivered to the user. During the event held in So Paulo, Hugo Barra, global vice president of Xiaomi, tried to clarify this and other questions in the smallest detail.
All Redmi 2 components will be imported, including the first units sold here, but the company is investing and opening its first production line outside Asia. The company responsible for assembling Xiaomi devices in Brazil will be Foxconn, which has a plant in Jundia, and will receive components imported from various suppliers, such as Samsung (RAM), Sharp (screen) and Qualcomm (processor). Even with investments in local manufacturing, the company's business model remains similar to that applied in India and China. The amount of R $ 499 charged by Redmi 2 fits the provision in the Law of Good, which creates tax incentives for companies that make investments and bring innovation to the country.
