TAIPEI -- Foxconn parent Hon Hai is scheduled to apply for investment permission to establish a branch at Kaohsiung Software Park, a move that will bring 3,000 jobs in the next five years.

The investment would focus on innovation, R&D and design, chairman Terry Guo said, according to published reports.

The first phase of the new division will employ some 520 software engineers by May 20, 2009, and 2,500 more over the next five years.

Foxconn is the world's largest EMS/ODM company.
