The construction of a new development and support center in Bulgaria will create 2,000 new jobs, Hewlett-Packard said on Oct. 22.
HP already employs a workforce of 3,000 in Bulgaria and the chief of its local subsidiary there, Iravan Hira, signed a memorandum of understanding with the government to boost its presence in the Balkan country.
HP's new project development and technical support center would employ engineers (2,000), said the group's director for Central and Eastern Europe, Sasha Bezuhanova.
The group did not provide any details about the total investment costs.
