Foxconn hiring 1,000 workers in Vietnam

Taiwanese electronics contract manufacturer Foxconn is hiring 1,000 workers in the northern provinces of Bac Giang and Bac Ninh.

Its job announcement said they are required to assemble electronic components in Bac Ninh’s Que Vo District and Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park and Bac Giang’s Quang Chau Industrial Zone, and would be paid a salary of VND8-10 million ($350-440) a month.

Vietnam is this Apple manufacturing partner’s largest production base in Southeast Asia, and it employs more than 50,000 workers in the country.

In January, it received a license to build a $270-million plant to produce laptops and tablets in Bac Giang.

It also met with authorities in the northern province of Thanh Hoa in January to explore investment opportunities. It is looking for 100-150 hectares of land to build a plant producing electronic components at a cost of $1.3 billion.

Foxconn, a major assembler of Apple products, including the iPhone, and the world’s largest contract manufacturer, came to Vietnam in 2007, and has been operating mainly in the northern provinces of Bac Ninh, Bac Giang and Vinh Phuc, making computers and other electronic products and car parts.
