HP is hiring 600 people in Romania, along the 2000 people it has, branch chief Radu Enache informed at an event. Enache said that 2009 was a bad year for HP but the last months brought an increase of the company's profits.

Except for the Commercial office, HP has in Romania a service center with 1,700 people and most of those to be hired this year will complement the services rendered both for Romania and other regions.

HP has a development and research program in Cluj and an office in Timisoara. Radu Enache says that 2009 was a bad year and mostly all the good results in 2008 were lost last year.
