Apple will boost its connection with local suppliers, clean water projects and education opportunities, Cook was quoted as saying on his arrival.

Apple said Monday it would increase spending on suppliers in Vietnam, a key production hub, as CEO Tim Cook arrived in the country for a visit.

According to Apple's announcement, this year it will expand its vocational training program for people with disabilities to promote integration and provide greater opportunities for them in the supply chain.
