Kommt IKEA nach Manila?

Aufmerksam wurde ich auf den Plan von IKEA über http://www.rappler.com/business/22194-is-ikea-coming-to-the-philippines. Um über die aktuelle Situation etwas herauszufinden habe ich bei IKEA nachgefragt und die Antwort dauerte 2 Wochen und ging über mehre Ansprechpartner. Kurze Antwort: NEIN. Die Langfassung:

Thank you so much for your email and for your interest in the IKEA Concept. Your email has been forwarded to IKEA markets, a unit within Inter IKEA Systems B.V. and responsible for the world-wide expansion.

The Philippines is today not included in our expansion plan as we have other priorities around the world at present.

Our strategic expansion plan has already been decided upon. The plan is carefully evaluated on an annual basis and where to establish, when, and with whom is part of our confidential, long term planning. Where our focus is now and will be in the future, depend upon the available resources and our continuous evaluation of potential countries and regions.
