Unfazed by a global economic slowdown, two state-owned financial holding companies yesterday announced plans to hire more workers this year to bolster their retail banking operations.
Mega Financial Holding Co (兆豐金控) chairman Michael Chang (張兆順) said that the conglomerate plans to add 600 employees this year to support its consumer banking business.
