Uber has announced a new service that will deliver beer to people in the Philippine capital of Manila, as well as other cities around the country.
The company’s announcement follows a recent move to the US to cut off its services to the Philippines in retaliation for the country’s crackdown on protests against the death penalty.
While the company has not made any formal announcement of plans to move to new markets, the company said it would be moving to “new markets” in coming weeks.
“We’re really excited to announce that our new service in the new markets of the Philippines will start soon,” the company wrote in a blog post.
“The Philippines is home to some of the most incredible beer bars, restaurants and craft breweries.
We’ve been talking about this opportunity for years, and now, we’re finally able to take it to life.”
The new service will start in Manila on April 24, and it will be available to other cities throughout the country starting in May.
The new delivery service comes after Uber in June announced it would stop operating in the country due to government regulations, but it said it intended to reopen the service in a few months.
Uber, a company that has struggled in its US expansion, announced plans to bring its services back to the country earlier this year.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said that he was looking for a “better model” for the company to expand globally.
“If I’m going to be the leader of this world, I need to be able to say that this is my new home,” he told the Wall Street Journal at the time.
“That’s why I want to make sure we’re going to have a great product and the best service available to the public.
That’s why we’re taking this step.”
The company also announced that it would make its Philippine operations public on Monday.
“Today, Uber is ending its business operations in the People’s Republic of China,” Uber said in a statement.
“While we are focused on the Philippines, we also want to share our thoughts and experience to help others find a better way to travel, shop and do business.”
The move comes after the Philippines passed a law this year that allows people convicted of serious crimes, including murder, rape and drug trafficking, to be put on death row in the capital.
The country also faces widespread protests against President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people and forced millions to flee abroad.
