The world's largest contract manufacturer, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., said in a stock exchange filing that changes in employee numbers were part of its usual adjustments based on global strategy and clients' needs.

"The group still has recruiting needs of more than 50,000 in parts of the factories in China in the first quarter of 2019," Foxconn said in Chinese.

Last week, the Nikkei reported that Foxconn had let go around 50,000 contract workers in China since October, months earlier than normal.
