In the latest article posted by, the author’s Swedish source has confirmed that the IKEA Philippines store will be opening within a year’s time and that it will be in Cavite.

It was in March this year when Swedish Ambassador made a statement during a media roundtable. In an article published by Manila Bulletin, Harald Fries said, “If (IKEA) goes in the Philippines, like it has gone in other countries, there would be great opportunities for Filipinos to find work and there would be an investment in putting up stores. I won’t be surprised that once they have set their camp here, they’ll be looking for local manufacturing. I think that would be wonderful and interesting”.

IKEA has branches in Asian countries such as Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Macau, Indonesia, and South Korea. Reuters also tagged IKEA as “World’s Largest Furniture Retailer.”
