Apple CEO Cook meets Chinese officials

Apple CEO Tim Cook met government officials in Beijing on Monday as the consumer electronics company looks to expand in the region. 

Cook, who took over from recently deceased co-founder Steve Jobs, is on his first trip to the country since becoming CEO in August, Apple said without elaborating on his meetings. 

The CEO is no stranger to China, the world’s largest mobile market and a key growth area for the makers of the iPhone and iPad. As the former chief operating officer, he helped set up a sprawling supply chain centred on Asia, with a heavy presence in China.
