Yahoo Japan Corp., which operates Japan’s top Internet search engine, said Wednesday it plans to hire 200 or more employees on an annual basis in an effort to implement its aggressive business expansion plan.

If the job expansion program is carried out in full, the Yahoo Japan group will have 1,000 employees in Japan by 2004, almost double the 520 reported by the firm at the end of June.
