Alphabet’s Google announced the completion of its data centre and cloud facilities expansion in Singapore, marking a total investment of $5 billion in the nation’s technical infrastructure. This substantial investment underscores Google’s commitment to enhancing its services in Southeast Asia. The expanded data centres, which employ over 500 people, are crucial for powering essential services like Google Search and Maps.

In addition to its efforts in Singapore, Google revealed plans last week to invest $2 billion in Malaysia to establish its first data centre in the country. The expansion into Malaysia signifies Google’s broader strategy to bolster its presence and capabilities across Southeast Asia, aiming to support the growing demand for digital services and infrastructure.
