Cook meets mayor of Beijing; new Italian Apple Store coming

updated 11:45 am EDT, Tue March 27, 2012

Italian location furthers international push

As a part of his visit to Beijing on Monday, Apple CEO Tim Cook also met with Guo Jinlong, the mayor of Beijing, a local newspaper reports. The exact details of the encounter are unknown, but it's suggested he talked about expanding markets, and cooperating more closely with Beijing in the future. Yesterday Apple would only say that Cook was in the country to talk with "Chinese officials" about expanding operations in the region; he was nevertheless spotted at the Xidan Joy City Apple Store in Beijing.

Separately, Apple is moving ahead on another Italian retail store. A job listing has been posted for a location in Brescia, a city in the far north of the country. Where in the city Apple might go is unknown, but it's speculated the company could pick the Freccia Rossa shopping mall.

Apple is making a significant international push this year when it comes to retail. In the past few days alone several upcoming locations have been identified across Europe and Australia.
