Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) says it is looking to expand beyond its traditional Asia-Pacific sphere of influence, and has targeted Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia as key markets to achieve this goal. In an interview yesterday, SingTel’s chief executive for international operations, Lim Chuan Poh, said: ‘We’ve got to be a little bit bolder and take a wider interpretation of what we mean by Asia-Pacific.’
