GLOBE Telecom has restructured its international operations by opening an office in Japan and refocusing its retail operations in Europe.
The telco announced that it has expanded its operations in Asia with the establishment of GlobeTel Japan Inc. in Tokyo to serve the communications needs of customers in the Philippines as well as the 180,000 overseas Filipinos in Japan.
“We will continue to provide affordable and high-quality telecom services to our kababayans in Japan. We will also be adopting new business models to deliver meaningful products to overseas Filipinos,” said Nikko Acosta, Globe SVP for international business.
For its European operations, Globe announced it will close its offices in the UK, Italy, and Spain. But Globe kept its popular telebabad service, DUO International, in the said markets through existing partnerships with telecom providers.
The three offices are UK Globetel Limited and Globe Mobile Italy s.r.l., both opened in 2013, and Globetel Internacional European Espana S.L. which started operations in 2014. They are all members of the Globe Group of Companies.
In accordance with its international business alignment, Globe will retain its offices in the USA, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and its retail presence across key markets such as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
