[TECHINASIA] – Go-Jek’s first foreign adventure

Go-Jek has officially launched outside of its native Indonesia for the first time. Go-Viet began operating motorbike-hailing and express courier services in Ho Chi Minh City last month.

Next on Go-Jek’s list is Thailand – where it will be known as Get – with launches in Singapore and the Philippines set to follow later this year.

Archrival Grab may present the biggest hurdle for the Indonesian firm’s expansion plan, but there are a host of other app-based ride-hailing players that it will have to contend with as it makes its first foray beyond local shores.
