It’s goodbye to Uber and hello to Go-Jek. The Indonesian ride-hailing firm is aiming to fill up the shoes left empty by Uber’s departure from Southeast Asia earlier this year, while also taking on current Southeast Asia ride-hailing king Grab in a race for market share. While not much details were revealed, the company said it plans to launch ride-hailing services in Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines in the coming months, and will be investing £500 million (US dollars) to do so, according to a report on Channel News Asia.

The company will start with ride-hailing services first before expanding to other sectors, such as food delivery, or even on-call masseurs and manicures, features which Go-Jek has in its home market in Indonesia.
