ZHENGZHOU, June 29 (Xinhua) -- Foxconn is to build a new plant in Zhengzhou City, capital of central China's Henan Province, municipal authorities said Tuesday.

Foxconn and senior officials of Zhenzhou and Henan are working on the details of an agreement to build the plant, said a spokesman for the municipal government.

Zhengzhou has allocated land for the plant. The first phase construction will cover 133 hectares, he added.

Henan has launched a massive recruitment drive for the new plant. Recruitment advertisements have been posted in many residential communities in Zhengzhou as well as on the official websites of other Henan cities.

The new plant is to employ 300,000 people in the long run. About 100,000 people are to be recruited in the near future, an official with the provincial employment promotion department said while declining to give his name.

"Workers can expect a monthly income from 2,500 yuan to 3,000 yuan with wages of no less than 2,000 yuan per month." The pay is about the same as that of Foxconn's plants in Shenzhen City in south China's Guangdong Province.

Newly recruited workers are to intern in Foxconn's Shenzhen plants before working in the new plant.

The provincial government will subsidize employees of the new Foxconn plant during their training. Each worker can receive up to 600 yuan per month, the official said.
