US computer giant Hewlett-Packard said Friday it planned to create 2,000 new jobs in Bulgaria with the construction of a new development and support centre.
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 Friday to boost its presence in the Balkan country.
HP's new project development and technical support centre would employ 2,000 engineers, said the group's director for Central and Eastern Europe, Sasha Bezuhanova.
The group did not provide any details about the total investment costs.
