The company will invest some 27 million euro in the expansion of its office building in Iasi.
Depending on the future projects and the development of the automotive industry, the company will continue to hire people this year, it added.
At the end of 2019, Continental employed over 20,000 in its engineering centres and production facilities in Romania working in international teams on the key trends of automotive industry, namely connectivity, autonomous driving and electromobility, by using methods such as artificial intelligence and big data, the company also said.
