During the summit, Cu said Globe is considering to offer GCash, its mobile-based banking service, to the Southeast Asian market including groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The service offers BanKO, a mobile-based, microfinance-focused savings bank, along with Bank of the Philippine Islands and Ayala Corp. Globe will offer said services once the ASEAN Economic Community takes place in 2015.
