Taipei, Dec. 8 (CNA) A subsidiary of Kinmen Kaoling Liquor has shelved a plan to hire new employees from Taiwan for its operations in Xiamen, southern China, citing worse-than-expected business. Lin Tsui-yun, general manager of Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor (Xiamen) Trading Co., Ltd., said the company's 2013 revenues were 130 million yuan (US$21.21 million) as of November, about half its target of 250 million yuan for the year. Business at the trading company, which sells Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor's products exclusively in China, has been poor because of a crackdown on the wining and dining of government employers and a ban on the purchase of liquor with government funds, she said. As a result, the trading company, which has 70 workers in Xiamen, decided not to recruit any new Taiwanese employees until the Chinese market recovers, Lin said. The trading company had been advertising in local newspapers and on job bank websites in November for new Taiwan staff for its Xiamen office, but dropped the ads abruptly after the Dec. 2 application deadline. Lin said the trading company has returned the applications, along with an explanation of why the entry tests were canceled. (By Chen Shou-gow and Maubo Chang)
