Amazon may set up second Philippine center in Manila


The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) chairperson Charito Plaza disclosed that Amazon’s second customer service center is likely to be located in Manila. Plaza, who is in charge of foreign investments in the Philippines, made the announcement barely a week after the world’s largest retailer officially launched its first service center in the country in Cebu City.
