HP chief says company will not downsize its Chinese workforce

Hewlett-Packard Co, whose personal computers are the most frequently shipped in the world, has no plans to reduce the size of its Chinese workforce after the merger of its printer sector and PC sector, the company's CEO said on Wednesday.

Taiwan's Foxconn, which also makes products for many IT companies such as Dell Inc and Sony Corp,has just signed an agreement with the Chongqing municipal government to build a printer factory, which will produce up to 20 million HP printers every year, Meg Whitman, the top executive of the US-based company, said during her first trip to China since taking the helm at the company seven months ago.

Her trip follows visits made by CEOs of other prominent US technology companies. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc, and Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook Inc, both came to China last month.
