Tim Cook Just Completed A Tour Of China, Met With Didi Chuxing's President

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)'s CEO Tim Cook's visit to China is underway, and early reports are giving a glimpse of what he is doing in the country and who he is meeting with.

According to CNBC's Eunice Yoon, Cook visited one of Apple's largest stores in Beijing and was accompanied with Didi Chuxing President Jean Lui (also known as Liu Qing).

In fact, Cook made use of Didi Chuxing's service — a fitting move following the company's $1 billion investment in the taxi hailing service.

While at the Apple store, Cook also met senior executives from some of China's top app developers, including the country's largest daily deal service site called Meituan and MeituPic, a picture-editing app.

Cook's visit to China will be followed by a trip to India later this week. The executive is expected to meet with the country's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, according to Fortune.

Shares of Apple were trading higher by more than 2 percent early Monday morning.
