Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, said he was thrilled to be back to China.

Cook made the comments at the ongoing China Development Forum in Beijing on Saturday, during his first trip to China since 2019.

Cook said "It was so wonderful to be back."

According to him, over the past three decades, "Apple and China grew together, and we were both enjoying…"

"We have a very large supply chain in China. We also have a thriving App Store,"Cook said.

According to Apple, there are more than 5 million registered Chinese mobile app developers within its iPhone ecosystem.

The senior executive said every time he comes to China, he learns something, and takes something back, primarily related to culture.

Cook said many things have changed in China with cities becoming so large in the country.

"The thing that does not change is the culture that anything is possible," Cook added.
