Update : 27 Mar 2018, 04:07 PM
Grab, one of the most frequently used online to offline mobile platforms in Southeast Asia, recently announced that it has acquired Uber’s Southeast Asia operations. This deal is the largest-ever of its kind in Southeast Asia. Grab will integrate Uber’s ridesharing and food delivery business in the region into Grab’s existing multi-modal transportation.

However, Bangladesh will not be affected by this as the deal does not cover the country. The countries impacted by the deal are: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. “This deal does not cover and will not have any impact on our Bangladesh operations. The great news about our Grab deal is that it allows us to double down to invest aggressively in our core markets, which includes the India and South Asia region, namely, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. We are 100% committed to serving our riders and driver partners in Bangladesh,” an Uber spokesperson said.
