PARIS (Reuters) - BNP Paribas , France's biggest listed bank, said it would reduce Ukraine staff by 1,600 by 2015 as part of an ongoing restructuring of its local unit in the face of a tough economic environment.

BNP executives told investors during a presentation on strategy that the bank had already reduced loans outstanding at its Ukrainian subsidiary UkrSibBank and that 84 of its branches were closed in 2013.
