Rising Demand for Migrant Workers in China Signals Rebound

To meet rising production, Flextronics International reveals it plans to recruit about 10,000 migrant workers in early 2010--signalling a rebound for China's export-oriented manufacturers, reports the South China Morning Post.


According to the Post, the rising demand for migrant workers is a positive sign for export companies, many of which had to lay off workers and shut plants due to the global financial crisis.


The Post says Flextronics is in a hiring mode because orders for infrastructure, computing and consumer-related products were increasing. The company's customers included Lenovo Group, Huawei Technologies, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Cisco Systems and Motorola.
