The Philippine’s economy has undeniably improved under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, aside from chunky contribution of Overseas Filipino Worker’s (OFW) remittances, the investment of international brands and companies in the country also plays a huge role in keeping our economy stable.
There is no doubt that Duterte’s leadership attracts foreign investors and one of the recent proof to that is when a Japanese global apparel retailer chose to open their new flagship store in the Philippines among the 50 countries in Asia.
On Monday, Uniqlo revealed their plans to put up a global flagship store in Glorietta 5 in Makati City which is said to be their largest flagship store in Southeast Asia.
In a statement, Uniqlo confirmed that their 15th flagship store will be based in Manila joining other flagship stores located in New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Oxford Street, Paris’ Opera District, Ginza in Tokyo, and Orchard Road in Singapore.
“We are honored and excited to open our first Uniqlo Global Flagship Store in the Philippines,” said Uniqlo chief executive officer Satoshi Hatase.
Hatase added that the store in Glorietta 5 will have a sales floor area of 4,100 square meters which will feature clothing line up of men, women, kids, and babies.
