The construction of the Philippine outlet of Swedish furniture-maker IKEA is “going according to plan” despite the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the company’s officials said Tuesday.

IKEA PH, set to become the world’s largest, will open in the third or fourth quarter of the year with its e-commerce site launching ahead of physical branch’s opening, IKEA’s Southeast Asia development manager Georg Platzer told reporters during a virtual media briefing.
