French bank BNP Paribas plans to recruit 250 more employees for its Singapore operations within the next three years.

Ms Theresa Ho, the bank's head of human resources for South-east Asia, revealed these hiring intentions as BNP today unveiled its first Asia campus in Singapore.

The facility, reconstructed from two heritage buildings along Hendon Road in Changi, aims to train 3,200 BNP employees a year. It cost $24 million and is the largest of BNP's campuses around the world.

Monetary Authority of Singapore managing director Ravi Menon, who was the guest-of-honour at the event, said the campus is a "welcome addition to Singapore's ecosystem to build human capital in finance for the future".
