Germany up next for Fujitsu's job cuts

TOKYO -- Japanese electronics giant Fujitsu will eliminate 400-500 jobs in Germany, to follow the 2,200 job cuts in the U.K. and Finland announced recently, as the company aims to increase competitiveness in Europe by trimming costs.

A total of 2,700 jobs will be eliminated in Europe as a result. German subsidiary Fujitsu Technology Solutions, which employs around 12,000 workers, is set to make reductions with a final decision coming once negotiations with workers are concluded. Cuts will be mainly in the information technology system operations and development services.
